HISTORY

The Beaver Dam Area Community Foundation was established in September 2019 as a regional affiliate of the Fond du Lac Area Foundation. The Foundation will serve the city of Beaver Dam and its surrounding areas by supporting programs and projects that improve the quality of life and build a stronger community.

The idea of establishing the Beaver Dam Area Community Foundation was developed by local residents and founding board members, Tom Heffron and Patrick Lutz. Additional founders who provide ongoing assistance to the Beaver Dam Area Community Foundation include John Ralston, Jim Hankes, Ken Thomas, John Moser, John Leiting, Kay and Jack Stellpflug, and Steve Vessey.

The Fond du Lac Area Foundation coordinates the administrative details for all Beaver Dam Area Community Foundation funds. Affiliates benefit from the administrative support, guidance, and philanthropic expertise provided by the Fond du Lac Area Foundation and its staff, as well as the dedication and vision of local leaders within the communities being served.
