Three Lakes Community Funds

Three Lakes Community Funds were established within the Community Foundation of North Central Wisconsin in November of 2014 with a simple mission: to provide philanthropic avenues for gifting and granting of funds designed to make Three Lakes an even better place to live, vacation, learn, invest, work, and play.

These funds provide an opportunity for all stakeholders - full-time residents, seasonal residents, visitors, vacationers, employers, and employees - to have a voice in making a positive impact on the community.
