Architect Frank C. Shattuck’s gift still changing community
To provide new services or supplement existing ones for youth and the elderly, while promoting education, the arts and health care for all.
Frank C. Shattuck
The prominent Neenah architect and philanthropist Frank C. Shattuck gave away millions of dollars to countless organizations, institutions and charitable efforts during his lifetime. His father, S.F. Shattuck, was vice president at Kimberly-Clark Corp., and his grandfather was one of the firm’s founders. In accordance with his will, the Frank C. Shattuck Community Fund was established in 1999 with a $9 million bequest to provide new services or supplement existing ones for youth and the elderly, while promoting education, the arts and health care for all. Grants are recommended by the Frank C. Shattuck Community Fund Advisory Committee.
When community leaders were working hard to establish a Boys and Girls Clubs in Menasha, Frank was able to help again. The Frank C. Shattuck Community Fund provided a $500,000 grant to help build the new club because Frank knew and trusted that the Community Foundation and an advisory committee looking after his legacy would provide help when and where it was needed.
