With spring finally here, we've given our newsletter a makeover. We hope you enjoy our new look! The Community Foundation is gearing up for our spring grantmaking cycles and events. Get involved!
Help shape a vision for the Fox Cities
Imagine Fox Cities is a new, inclusive community-wide initiative created to shape the future of the Fox Cities. The goal is to improve individual and collective well-being, which includes housing, safety, health care, lifelong learning and more.

The initiative was created by community members, for the community, and will be an ongoing effort to ensure the community maintains or improves what is valued, with an eye on the future. Once opportunities for improvement are identified, Imagine Fox Cities will move forward on developing a collaborative, comprehensive community action plan that includes a framework for future decisions based on identified shared values.

Imagine Fox Cities will host community conversations and provide surveys to help define the meaning of well-being in the Fox Cities. For more information or if you’re interested in attending a listening session or completing a survey, visit
Join us May 1 for Celebrating Volunteers, a community gala in Appleton celebrating local volunteerism and honoring seven outstanding volunteers with special awards. A limited number of complimentary reservations are available for nonprofit organizations that bring their own volunteer of the year. Registration details.
Tips when using our online grant portal:
  • There are several different grant applications on the grant portal. Before you start typing, be sure you’ve selected the correct one.
  • If you write your application information in Microsoft Word, you can cut and paste your text into the application text boxes.
  • Once you hit “submit” your grant application will be locked and you’ll no longer be able to make changes.
