Wishing everyone a safe and happy 4th of July!
A gift to the Fremont Area Community Foundation supports your community - now and forever.
Grants are given in the areas of arts and culture, civic improvements, education, health and recreation and social services.
The Fremont Area Community Foundation exists to improve the quality of life in our community. It is through the foresight of our founders that we exist to provide everyone an opportunity to realize their dreams for the community. Together we can ensure that the Fremont area continues to be a great place to live for all of our citizens.
The Fremont Area Community Foundation makes competitive grants for civic improvement, health and recreation, social services, arts and culture, and educational purposes in Fremont and the surrounding communities. Grants are made from the earnings from the Foundation's Fremont Forever Fund and the Lester A. Walker Fund.
Are you a high school or college student looking for financial assistance for your education? The Foundation has scholarships available to help talented students attain the dream of a college education. These funds provide educational opportunities for future generations and allow our fund holders to achieve their own charitable goals.
2014 marked the final year of the Hazel R. Keene Donor-Advised Fund held at the Fremont Area Community Foundation. The Keene Donor-Advised Fund, and the 20-year Charitable Trust that preceded it, distributed grants to organizations throughout Dodge County, providing vital support for an array of community needs. The impact of these funds was significant and felt by countless individuals in the Fremont area. Bert passed away 65 years ago, and Hazel died 30 years ago. But their legacy lives on through the impact of their philanthropy. View this video to learn more about their story.
Steve Steager, band director at Fremont Middle School, received the recipient of the Rotary Teacher Award, given annually to a teacher in the community to who goes above and beyond the normal teaching requirements.
