H.O. West Foundation
Supporting Our Communities
In 1972, the H.O. West Foundation was created to honor Herman O. West, the founder of the Company. The mission of the Foundation is to provide financial assistance to qualified, non-profit organizations that serve the cultural, health, education and community service needs of the areas and communities where the Company maintains operations; and to support the special needs of the at-risk population-- especially children--through the various fundraising programs of West without Borders.
Eligible charitable organization may submit grant proposals by providing the following information:
- The extent of services the organization or program is providing
- A financial statement indicating the sources of funds and how those funds are dispersed
- The future needs and services of the program over the next few years
- Documentation of tax exempt status
Proposals should be directed to:
