Awards for 2015

Every year the Community Foundation receives numerous requests for grants to support community programs. This year alone we received over 60 requests and were able to fund $244,818 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 2015 we gave back $1,390,424 to our community

On June 4, 2015 we held our Annual Appreciation Event at Sentry World in Stevens Point to celebrate our Fund Sponsors, Donors, Grant Recipients and Scholarship selections.  To view some of the pictures from the event you can visit our Facebook page.
