Over the years WEDCO has partnered with many local groups and committees to help further their mission by acting as their fiscal agent, provide technical assistance, providing meeting space, etc.
Supporting these groups furthers WEDCO’s efforts of promoting economic growth in the region while protecting and enhancing its intrinsic benefits.
Trails Rails Action Committee (TRAC) – TRAC’s efforts to build the Cotton Valley Trail began in 1992 and continues today. This recreational multi-use trail will eventually extend 12 miles, linking the towns of Wolfeboro, Brookfield and Wakefield, via a former railroad right-of-way.
Pathways of Wolfeboro Committee (PWC) – PWC’s goal is to enhance and connect four miles of trail networks of Sewall Woods and Abenaki, downtown Wolfeboro, the Cotton Valley Trail as well as Carry and Brewster Beaches. For more information visit www.wolfeboropathways.org
Festival of Trees Committee - The Festival was started in 1999 as a benefit for the LIFE Ministries Food Pantry in Wolfeboro. The event was such a success that it was held again in 2000. Subsequently, the Festival committee has organized the festival each year to benefit various other charitable causes in the greater Wolfeboro area.

Organizations assisted in the past:
“The Eastern Lakes Region Housing Coalition, Inc. (Coalition) began its working relationship with WEDCO in 2004. The Coalition was a fledgling group in the process of defining itself, setting its mission and goals, and establishing creditability in the greater community. The active support of the WEDCO Board of Directors and more directly of staff, were a major factor in the successful development of the Coalition.
Prior to receipt of the Coalition’s 501(c)(3) non-profit designation, WEDCO served as the fiscal agent for our corporation. The record keeping and reports were professional, timely, and accurate. Staff is always responsive to requests for checks, interim information on accounts, and acknowledgement to donors. She maintains a comfortable working relationship and is always ready to share expertise and helpful assistance.
The Coalition and WEDCO have continued our affiliation as we recognize our common goal to support the regional economy. This relationship has benefited the work of the coalition with the support and assistance of a highly respected and professional organization.”
