The WAFP Foundation is the philanthropic arm of the WAFP, and therefore shares a vision statement. Through strategic planning retreats in 2014-2015, the Board of Directors modified the mission statement to reflect a focus on workforce development, advocacy, and leadership development. In addition, the Board of Directors verified their support of several value statements that define how the Foundation will approach its work.
