Welcome

MACFSince 1993, area residents have been turning to the Marshfield Area Community Foundation to make their philanthropic giving as effective as possible. We are a public charity serving thousands of people who share a common concern—improving the quality of life in Marshfield and surrounding communities. Please see the About Us page for more information.

The Marshfield Area Community Foundation was established 21 years ago by the Adler sisters, Anne and Bette. Their goal was to make a long-term impact on their home community of Marshfield. And what an impact this Foundation has made! We now have $9.9 million in assets and more than 133 funds. To date we have given back $4.1 million to our community. We have funds that support the arts, education, the environment, animals, sports and leisure, youth development, human services, and community development.

Below you will find online copies (PDF) of our Scholarship Bulletin and Annual Report, along with a PowerPoint Presentation that provides an overview of the community foundation, and the big meaning behind it.

The annual Scholarship Bulletin is printed by The Buyers' Guide on January 31. The Bulletin lists not only the scholarships offered through MACF, it also includes scholarships offered by other foundations, businesses, organizations, families, and individuals to graduates of 10 area school districts. Several scholarships are available for "non-traditional" students as well. You may browse this bulletin to prepare for your scholarship search . The Bulletin is available inour office, at participating schools, and the Marshfield Public Library.
