Generous individuals, families, and businesses have left charitable gifts to the Beaver Dam Area Community Foundation to strengthen and sustain the quality of life in our community. We use these gifts through the local expertise and knowledge of our volunteer advisory board to direct grants to local nonprofit organizations and scholarships to students who meet application criteria. These grants and scholarships are in the fields of education, health, human service, the arts and culture, youth, and the environment, just to name a few. The Beaver Dam Area Commuity Foundation is focused not only on the needs of our community, but we also enhancing our community's strengths.
