ABOUT US - Wausau School Foundation



To be the leading non-profit organization fostering excellence and innovation in public education within the Wausau School District.

To promote excellence and innovation in education by strengthening community support for the Wausau School District. The Wausau School Foundation indentifies and supports impactful projects that are outside the District's funding capabilities, generating resources through collaboration with individuals, corporations and other foundations.

The WSF Board of Directors is comprised of community and business members, parents, and educators who 
determine policies, fund-raise, provide leadership in grant making, and good stewards of contributions.
The Wausau School Foundation was established in 1997, incorporated in 1999 and became a 501(c)(3) in 2004. 
The initial Board of Directors included:

          Ginger Alden, Christine Bremer, Gene Davis, John Dudley, Kathy Kelsey Foley, Jim Force, Christine Freiberg,
          Gary Freels, Fred Frey, Tom Mack, Sarah Miller, Linda Prehn, Gerry Riskey, Ron Rutlin, Doris Ullrich,
          Randy Westgate, and Bob Wolff...
their vision and dedication was the beginning to sparking innovation in
          education for children of the Wausau School District. Start up funds were granted by the Community Foundation
          of North Central Wisconsin, followed by a successful Founders campaign.
