each a child to fish . . . you know the rest of the story. The Community


Foundation of Southern Wisconsin strives to teach communities – kids and adults – how to build endowments for the future. Grants and scholarships from the endowments at the Community Foundation reach into every segment of our communities providing funds for current needs.


The Community Foundation supports communities in nine counties – Crawford, Grant, Green, Iowa, Lafayette, Rock, Sauk, Vernon and Walworth. We work with local folks to build funds that will provide financial support to charitable causes for generations to come.


Matching personal philanthropy with community need through endowment building is our mission. We can all give back to our community by contributing to endowed funds that will give forward - for good for ever.
