Community Development

Community DevOur work addresses the Fox Cities’ greatest needs through a well-researched, comprehensive approach.

To create lasting change in our community, we partner with key stakeholders and area experts to identify our community’s greatest needs and determine strategies that result in measurable change.

Our volunteers spend about 1,000 hours reviewing programs and making funding decisions. Financial resources are then invested in initiatives, grants, collaborations and more than 100 programs at local partner agencies that work together to support our strategies.

We monitor funded programs throughout the year to ensure financial accountability and measure progress. Through this process, we impact 1 in 3 people in the Fox Cities, building a stronger, more caring community for everyone.
