Community Impact Grants: Making Great Things Happen Together

Madison Community Foundation is thrilled to celebrate its 75th Anniversary in 2017.

Lincoln Elementary students learn outside the classroom in the school’s new Art in the Garden area.

As part of the yearlong activities, MCF will make a series of major Community Impact grants that celebrate and strengthen our community’s unique assets, and discover and highlight future opportunities.

Here’s a sneak preview of the surprises in store!

  1. What’s made of white granite, and sits at the top of the hill on Madison’s isthmus, celebrates its 100th anniversary in 2017?
  2. For what recreational activity has Madison received a Platinum designation?
  3. Apart from Blue Mounds, Dane County has more of these than any other place in North America.

Bringing People Together

Throughout 2017 and beyond, MCF will continue to do what it’s done for decades – bring people together to give gifts and create legacies for the community they love. These will strengthen our community today, tomorrow and for generations to come, providing transformational grants for arts to flourish, land to be protected, nonprofits to innovate, and residents of all ages to thrive. Join the mission- add your voice to our story. We have many more chapters to write.

Madison Community Foundation’s support will allow us to dramatically increase our work with the middle and high schools we serve and enable more people of all ages to become entrepreneurs,” says Sector67 founder Chris Meyer. “The Madison community trusts MCF to fund projects with the greatest potential, and we are honored they value and support our mission.”
