We are committed to the health and safety of our staff and community members and are closely monitoring CDC and Wisconsin Department of Health Services guidelines.

We remain in close collaboration with our regional funding partners, our statewide network of community leaders and nonprofit partners plus our national community foundation colleagues to ensure we’re ready and available to mobilize resources, support and communications where and when they are most needed, particularly for the Fox Valley’s most vulnerable populations.

What is a Community Foundation?

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.
