Tax time has come and gone and people are asking what they could have done differently.

Community Foundation Has Successful Year, Change on the Horizon 2018 was a big year for the Marshfield Area Community Foundation, Inc (MACFI). We celebrated our 25th Anniversary and held an event to celebrate. The evening was highlighted by making a $25,000 contribution to Marshfield Respite Care. After 6 years at Partner's Bank MACFI moved to new offices located within the 2nd Street Community Center. We thank Partner's Bank for their generosity over the last six years. Our new location offers good contact with many of our constituents in a very visible location.
