Your Community Foundation is fortunate to have a unique view of the very best of our Fox Valley Region – it’s the people. The culture of people who look out for their neighbors and community shows itself continually in the ways individuals and businesses choose to partner with us to make a difference. Our relationships are with caring donors, passionate nonprofit organizations, and a region with so many who genuinely care. Together, we work to make a community we want to live in, and we build for a better tomorrow.
Donors giving through the Community Foundation sustained their generosity in 2022, with grants once again exceeding $40 million. Emerging from the pandemic revealed even more community and human needs that were met by resourceful nonprofits and a community of donors wanting to help.
