Support Us

There are so many ways you can support the WG 14 Foundation.  Even if it is just a dime, we are grateful.  Here are just some ideas to start the wheels turning:

#1: Attend our Second Annual Fundraiser on Friday, Nov. 25, from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. at The Wildcat in Camillus, NY. 

Come celebrate the lives of Sam and Mike, see old friends, bid on auction items, eat good food and simply have a relaxing day after Thanksgiving.  It really is the time of year to be grateful, to spend time with your family and friends, and we are truly touched by your support.  Come kick up your heels and finally relax with your old friends and enjoy a good time, while supporting the students in our community.

#2: Can’t make it to the event?  Donate online to express your support today!

You can donate via Venmo, PayPal, Check or cash.  Check out all the ways you can donate by reviewing our Make a Donation section that is on each page on this website – just to make it easy for everyone to find 😊

#3: How does my company or foundation become a partner of the WG 14 Foundation?

The mission of the foundation is simple: provide two graduating seniors from West Genesee High School, who demonstrate commitment to teamwork and helping the underdog, a scholarship to a higher ed institution.  To honor their memory and keep their spirits alive, we thought there was no better way than to give back and help young adults in starting the next phase of their lives – which is exactly what these two stood for – helping others!

As simple as it may seem, the impact that your support will have on young people’s lives, will be everlasting. We would truly appreciate any funding you can offer in helping us raise money to help West Genesee graduates receive scholarships for years to come.

Simply contact us at today, and we will be sure to provide you with more information on how we can solidify a truly powerful partnership and we would love to promote your organization on our website as well!  We look forward to seeing how we can support each other’s goals, and welcome your inquiries.

#4: I work for a company that offers matching gifts.  How do I get the information that I need to apply for the matching gift to ensure it reaches the WG 14 Foundation?

The WG 14 Foundation is a 501(c)(3) organization.  Our Federal Tax ID number is 87-2795442, and our official name is WG 1998 Scholarship Foundation (dba WG 14 Foundation).

#5: Are you familiar with the amazing program AmazonSmile?  We’d love you to familiarize yourself with the program, and hopefully sign yourself up so that you can automatically start supporting the foundation.  It’s totally free, and it’s a no-brainer!

#6: We are truly grateful for any donated auction items for the gathering at The Wildcat on Nov. 25!

Last year, we were blown away by the people who called from far and wide to donate everything from lacrosse helmets, to Nascar tickets, to a weekend at a winery, to golfing experiences, to signed sports memorabilia, and the list goes on and on.  There are not enough thank-yous that we can say to everyone that put their hearts and souls into putting together items for us to auction off.  We welcome all donations!!!  We know they all came from your hearts, and we couldn’t be more humbled.

#7: We have MERCH!
