Community Foundation announces new home
Move to historic train depot creates a center for impact and philanthropy

We are excited to share our plans to acquire and occupy the historic Milwaukee Road Passenger Depot located at 400 S. Washington Street in downtown Green Bay. The Foundation has been working collaboratively with leaders over the last several years to establish an accessible and forward-thinking center for impact and philanthropy. 
 
This opportunity allows the Foundation to efficiently and economically create an accessible space to advance our community's work for even greater collective impact.
 
We expect to publicly reopen the Train Depot in early 2022. A dynamic place where individuals, nonprofits, donors, and leaders will intersect to seek solutions, resources, and the services required to strengthen our community. 
 
Most recently occupied by Breakthrough, the Train Depot was home to the Greater Green Bay Chamber for decades prior to 2011. Breakthrough's growth and transition to a new collaboration hub in 2021 provides the Community Foundation an opportunity to build on a more than 100-year heritage of this building.
 
As the Foundation approaches 30 years of community service, we are honored to be entrusted with this historic building and will preserve its legacy as it evolves to serve our community in new ways. 
 
We will continue to share updates as our plans unfold including at our August 5 Donor's Forum and October Celebration of Giving. 
 
Sincerely,
 

Dennis Buehler
President / CEO
