Founded in 1926 as a tax-exempt public charity, we are a collection of endowed and donor-advised charitable funds established by individuals, families, organizations, and businesses.

To establish these charitable funds, we accept gifts of any size to advance civic, cultural, educational, health, and welfare organizations and initiatives in Kenosha County.

From these charitable funds, we allocate grants to local not-for-profit organizations, award scholarships to deserving area students, and sponsor Kenosha area cultural and social initiatives and events.

We proudly #GiveLocalKenosha.

Our Mission:
Helping people to enhance the present and insure the future of the Kenosha Community.

Exciting New Music is Coming to Kenosha

The evening concert by the Boston-based Hub New Music will feature the premiere of a new work composed by Daixuan Ai. Ms. Ai, a participant in the fresh inc. music festival held at UW-Parkside, was commissioned by the Foundation to work with Hub New Music to develop the new work.

Earlier in the afternoon at the Creative Space, Hub New Music will lead a workshop with students from Kenosha area schools. In addition to discussing musicianship and playing selected pieces, the quartet and students attending the session will create and perform a new composition.
