The Prescott Foundation helps build a better community by improving the quality of life and advancing philanthropy in the Prescott area.
The Prescott Foundation supports programs which enrich life in our area by fulfilling civic, humanitarian, cultural, recreational, environmental and educational needs.
Established in 1989, our mission is to build a better community through charitable giving. We connect donors to the charitable causes that the community cares about, and we make grants and provide leadership to address community issues.
Each year, money flows from the Prescott Foundation to support the good work of schools, local organizations and charitable groups. The consistent stream of local philanthropy begins in the hearts of our donors, people who have prospered here and who want to give something back to the community. Whether they make a one-time donation, plan a bequest from a large estate, or make a small memorial donation to honor a loved one, people find a pathway for their good intentions through the Prescott Foundation.
A volunteer Board of Directors governs the Prescott Foundation. The members have combined expertise in charitable giving, law, financial management, government, general business and community service. The Board defines the vision, mission and strategies of the Foundation. In 2013 we became an affiliate of the St. Croix Valley Foundation, which provides us with expert investment management and additional resources for administration.
Each year, the Prescott Foundation provides grants to organizations and groups that respond to specific community challenges and improve the vitality of our community. We are especially interested in supporting programs that create a positive and lasting impact.
