We have been helping donors share in effective, efficient and enduring ways since 1986.
We are a tax-exempt, publicly supported nonprofit organization managing charitable funds — mostly permanent endowments — created by many families, businesses and organizations. These funds generate grants for the long-term benefit of the people of the Fox Valley region of Wisconsin.
We focus our work in Calumet, Outagamie, Shawano and Waupaca counties and the Neenah-Menasha area of Winnebago county, and partner with families of funds in Brillion, Chilton, Clintonville, Shawano and Waupaca.
Our donors have enabled us to become the second-largest certified Community Foundation in Wisconsin and among the top 10% of more than 750 community foundations nationwide. The Council on Foundations certifies that we achieve national standards of excellence for U.S. community foundations.
We strengthen our community for current and future generations by helping people make a difference in the lives of others. We fulfill our mission by:
Accepting and professionally managing financial gifts for the long-term in flexible, easy and efficient ways.
Partnering with people to help them engage in giving that fulfills their charitable dreams.
Awarding grants that achieve results and sustain a vibrant community for all, forever.
Using our knowledge of community needs to lead and convene people around issues and opportunities.
