Since 1993, area residents have been turning to the Marshfield Area Community Foundation to make their philanthropic giving as effective as possible. We are a public charity serving thousands of people who share a common concern—improving the quality of life in Marshfield and surrounding communities. Please see the About Us pages for more information.
Besides the many designated funds that benefit specific charitable causes identified by our donors, we also have a Community Grants Fund that provides support to local nonprofit organizations and community groups involved in education, recreational, arts and culture, conservation, community development, and other charitable or benevolent purposes. We are now accepting grant applications. For more information please go to our Grants and Scholarships page by clicking here.
