Doug & Carla Salmon Foundation

Provides need-based college scholarships to highly motivated students and financial support to local qualifying charitable organizations.

Our Story

The Salmons moved to Appleton in 1972 to work in the medical field and raise their two children. In the late 1990s, Doug and Carla began to explore ways to give back to the community that had been so good to them. They concluded that the most meaningful work they could do would be to offer a helping hand to worthy students.

In 1999, they began to provide scholarship assistance to highly motivated but financially needy college students. By 2002, the Salmons were working with foundations at UW-Fox Valley, Fox Valley Technical College, and UW-Oshkosh to provide scholarships. Currently, Salmon Foundation annual scholarships assist about 120 students.

The Salmons also had a strong desire to help charitable organizations in the Fox Valley — particularly through capital campaigns and the development of administrative endowments. In 2002, Doug and Carla formed the Doug & Carla Salmon Foundation, a supporting organization within the Community Foundation for the Fox Valley Region. Through this partnership, they are able to fulfill their passion for sharing with others for generations to come.
