The Lake Mills Area Community Foundation, founded in 1996 is a philanthropic organization that is dedicated to the enrichment of the community. The Foundation receives its funds in the form of both current gifting and bequests through estate planning. Gifts can be made to the General Endowment Fund or directed to special purposes such as scholarships. Local organizations are encouraged to apply for grants at any time.
The Foundation’s fund portfolio includes several fund alternatives to better meet the giving needs of individuals in the community.
The Foundation develops partnerships with community organizations and projects. Such partnerships provide the organization or project with increased visibility in the community, professional asset management for all funds received, and non-profit 501(c)(3) tax deduction status for all gifts to the project or organization.
