By Jon Meyers, Shawano Area Community Foundation Board Chair
The Shawano Area Community Foundation is grateful for the generosity many people have shown through their support of our mission to enhance the quality of life for the people in the greater Shawano area. We are continuously reminded that your support powers what we do.
Once again, 2021 leaves me encouraged and humbled by the outpouring of support over the past year as many lives have been impacted by grants made through the Shawano Area Community Foundation.
Whether aiding nonprofits during this challenging year, providing scholarships or recognizing the wonderful volunteers in our area with the Annual Celebration of Giving, the foundation has been changing our community in ways that never could have happened without your charitable contributions.
It is reassuring to know the Shawano area has many organizations and people eager to help others.
