Get To Know Us
The Crawford County Community Fund was established in 2008 as a permanent endowment for the benefit of the County. The Fund’s mission is to support economic development in the County. Once per year, a portion of the Fund’s earnings are returned to area communities in the form of grants for projects consistent with the Fund’s mission.
A unique project of the Fund is the annual Leadership Awards ceremony which recognizes citizens whose efforts advance the county’s quality of life.
Please nominate Crawford County leaders for the 2020 Crawford County Community Fund Leadership Awards! Nominations are due by March 4 with the awards presented on Thursday, April 30, 2020 at 6:30 pm at Crossing Rivers Health, 37868 US-18, Prairie du Chien, WI. Stay tuned for more details!
The Fund is led by a volunteer advisory board who initiates fundraising activities, promotes the Fund’s mission, and determines the annual leadership and grant awards.
