About the Fund
Established in 1999, the Darlington Area Community Fund is a permanent, unrestricted endowment created to serve the Darlington area. Its growth and success depends on people like you who share a commitment to invest in the community of Darlington to meet charitable, educational, historical, and cultural needs.
Each year a portion of the Fund’s earnings are given back to the community in the form of grants. Volunteer advisory board members initiate fundraising activities and lead the grant distribution process.
The Darlington Fund is a component fund of the Community Foundation of Southern Wisconsin.
