The Foundation recently achieved a milestone in market value by surpassing the $40 million dollar mark for the first time in our history, a trajectory we have been on since the first days of the Foundation. Asset growth increases the Foundation's ability to support local non-profits that look to the Foundation to help them meet their organizations' objectives.
There is little reason for a foundation to exist if not for the partnerships that are forged between committed individuals and organizations that dedicate themselves to improving lives and institutions within its community. All of Racine Community Foundation's research and resources are focused on finding ways to support the work of others who endeavor to make a difference. The Foundation supports collaboration across all sectors by awarding grants that strengthen and honor partnerships, connect community partners, and provide and encourage networking opportunities that enhance the work of all.
The Racine Community Foundation is proud to represent Racine County in what is considered to be the fastest growing sector in philanthropy today - public foundations. Such a distinction demands a high degree of expertise and accountability. With an all-volunteer Board of Directors and a dedicated staff, we wear many hats.
