“WHERE PURPOSEFUL GIVING CHANGES LIVES FOREVER”
“TO BE A CATALYST FOR IGNITING GENEROSITY AND BUILDING THE VIBRANT AND ENDURING PLACE WE CALL HOME”
The Winona Community Foundation has set its sights on bringing our new vision to life through our new mission.
After several months of collecting community input, facilitating strategic planning, and engaging in transformational thinking, Andrew Guzzo, chair of the Winona Community Foundation, shared our new mission and vision at the 2021 Founders Event. We are excited to put this new mission into action.
At its heart, the Foundation exists to serve as a permanent source of charitable dollars for the benefit of all who live, work, and play in the wonderful place we call home. We do this through a variety of funds, especially endowments. The Foundation has expertise and a multitude of resources to support people and businesses in maximization of their charitable contributions.
When you consider our new mission, the Foundation is embracing its role as a catalyst by showing people how it easy it can be to be purposeful in their giving. This generosity allows Winona and the surrounding area – the place we all call home – to thrive, succeed, and expand through opportunities.
We want to extend our gratitude to our local Winona community, as we could not have done any of this without you.
The Winona Community Foundation is a community leader and resource for giving and granting in the Winona Area. We serve non-profits and donors, big and small. People don’t give to the Winona Community Foundation; they give through us.
