Mission Statement

"Connecting people who care with causes that matter to enrich the quality of life in the Marshfield area."

Our role is to be an active agent of change in the community, seeking to identify local charitable needs and working to address them.

If you break the mission statement down, it implies two sets of activities related to a single goal.

Connecting with “People Who Care”

Our community is filled with people who care and want to make this a better place to live for those with ample resources to those with significant needs. MACFI creates a partnership with caring members of our community to assess the needs and priorities of the Marshfield Area and assists them in fulfilling their philanthropic goals.

Identifying “Causes That Matter”

It is our intent to provide the greatest potential for everyone who lives in the Marshfield area. The Foundation makes an ongoing effort to assess local needs so that we may direct our limited resources to causes that are considered most vital. We do this through community input, collaboration with other foundations and local agencies to ensure our collective efforts produce the greatest impact and efficiency.

Causes may include:

  • Community Health Concerns

  • Environmental Needs

  • Public Recreational Needs

  • Arts

  • Educational Priorities

  • Senior Opportunities

  • Socioeconomic Disparities
