Donate NowThe Greater Green Bay Community Foundation serves Brown, Kewaunee, and Oconto counties. Since 1991, we’ve been connecting people and resources to organizations and programs that strengthen our community, improve our quality of life, and make northeastern Wisconsin a great place to live, work, and play. Through our work, we have built a community endowment to support local non-profit organizations and important community initiatives. We invite you to learn more about us, our granting programs, and how you can become a donor.

Non-Profit & The Economy Survey
The Non-Profit and the Economy Survey is conducted annually.  The findings in this survey come from answers provided by non-profit representatives in a 47‐item questionnaire focused on non-profit experiences in the calendar year 2013 and expectations for 2014. The survey was sent to 128 local non-profit organizations in the first quarter of calendar year 2014.

The performance and health of these organizations is critical to our overall quality of life.  These organizations function and collaborate to form a safety net for every area of life, and they offer opportunities for us to understand, utilize, and have access to programs and services important to our well-being.

Support Our Local Arts & Culture
Arts and Culture programming creates a high quality of life for our local community and the audiences they attract contribute to the overall economy. Arts and culture are important for personal and community enrichment, to bring joy, beauty, new perspectives, richness, and innovative ideas to all aspects of community life, and they are central to human development from early childhood. Because of the importance of a healthy arts and cultural life, GGBCF is raising funds to create a Field of Interest Fund for community arts and culture. Learn more.
