About the Fund

The mission of the Mineral Point Community Foundation is to invest resources in Mineral Point and in its schools to meet changing charitable, educational, civic, historical, and cultural needs. For good. For ever.

The Mineral Point Community Endowment is a permanent endowment created in 2016 to provide support for people, projects, and plans of Mineral Point. Each year the endowment gives back a portion of its earnings in the form of grants to qualified organizations serving the community. The endowment is led by a volunteer advisory board who initiates fundraising activities and determines grant awards.
