Making a Difference Since 1999

Dear Friends:

For a quarter of a century, the Waukesha County Community Foundation has been a steadfast beacon of support, progress, and positive change in the heart of our community. We invite you to be part of our celebration by sharing your story, contributing to our 25th anniversary initiatives, and attending one or more of our community events.

Together with generous individuals, dedicated organizations, and visionary leaders who share our commitment to making Waukesha County a better place for all, we have:

  • Distributed more than $73 million in grants: Supporting vital programs across education, health, arts, environment, and more, ensuring that every corner of our county thrives.
  • Awarded 3500+ Scholarships: Nurturing the dreams of countless students and lighting the path toward brighter futures.
  • Partnered to fund 21 community projects: Transforming everything from recreation spaces to essential community facilities.

Our 25th anniversary marks a milestone and also a stepping stone toward an even more vibrant Waukesha County. How will you help shape the next 25 years?

In gratitude,

Melissa Baxter, WCCF President
