TOGETHER WE ARE STRONGER Campaign Goal.
With our TOGETHER WE ARE STRONGER Endowment Campaign, we aim to add $7.5 million in new charitable contributions to a community-based, unrestricted endowment. This is the financial goal for St. Croix Valley Community Foundation’s partnership with ten of its community-based foundations.
To sustain our mission as a community leader and philanthropic resource, while addressing our communities’ needs now and far into the future, it is vital that public and private stakeholders come together to invest in those neighborhoods that need it most.
Like the weave of a basket, we are stronger together. Each thread of insight brings new energy and strength from a different direction, supporting the other threads but in different ways. Together We Are Stronger.
It’s Your Decision!
Together We Are Stronger is a campaign with a $7.5 million goal. When a donor makes a gift to the St. Croix Valley Foundation campaign, the funds are invested and placed in a Building Vibrant Communities Endowed Fund with only the income earned is being used.
Additionally, there are several opportunities for the endowment of program-specific gifts. You can designate your gift to any one of the key project areas targeted in the campaign. Or you can simply give toward the overall campaign goal.
The St. Croix Valley Foundation Campaign Director will be happy to work with you to develop a gift plan that fits your particular needs and interests.
