Brillion Area Family of Funds

Preserving, strengthening and improving quality of life in the Brillion area.

NEW! Announcing a $500,000 Challenge to benefit the Brillion community!

Whether you were born and raised in the Brillion area or it is your adopted community, you no doubt appreciate the quality of life we enjoy here.

The privilege of living in a community like ours instills in us a desire to pay something back for what we’ve been given. One of the important and necessary funds that we are growing is the Brillion Area Community Endowment Fund. It provides a permanent source of dollars for charitable organizations working to improve the lives of everyone in our area.

Bob and Pat Endries want to leave a legacy by helping shape the future of Brillion today! They are matching dollar-for-dollar up to $500,000 for all donations in any amount to the Brillion Area Community Endowment Fund, the Fund that will support the work in Brillion forever.

If we can raise $500,000, secure the match of $500,000, we will be ensuring $45,000 annually will be given to our local nonprofits and schools forever!

It’s easy to start a fund with a gift of cash, stock, real estate or almost any asset. We can help you create a fund that generates grants to benefit your favorite charitable causes today and long after you’re gone. See our list of funds in our most recent Fiscal Year ending June 30, 2020. Read about the Brillion Iron Works Fund.
