Awards for 2016

Every year the Community Foundation receives numerous requests for grants to support community programs. This year alone we received over 83 requests and were able to fund $273,500 from the Foundation’s Mission Funds and the Arthur C. Heinz Charitable Fund.

Together with funding from our Mission Funds, Arthur C. Heinz Charitable Fund, Donor-Advised Funds, and Program Services we work together to meet as many community needs as possible.

Together in 2016 we gave back $1,594,474 to our community

On November 9, 2016 we held our Annual Appreciation Event at Stevens Point Country Club to celebrate our Fund Sponsors, Donors and Grant Recipients.  To view some of the pictures from the event you can visit our Facebook page.
