What We Do

Charitable giving is the very heart and mission of Western Sun Foundation and through our Charitable Giving Program we are able to award grants to selected 501(c)3 organizations and make a direct impact in the communities we visit by providing support, awareness & visibility to  local organizations and causes. Grants are funded through a combination of fundraising activities and GooseCommunity.com.

It is an interactive virtual space for fans to explore, engage and connect. Deep dive into all things Goose, connect with others in the community, explore in depth show archives and chronicle your own Goose journey with unique personal “show diaries”. GC hopes to grow and share the magic of the Goose community by creating a supportive, interactive virtual space for fans to explore, engage and connect, all in support of Western Sun Foundation's mission and philanthropic efforts.
