Old World Foundation is an independent 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that supports projects and programs at Old World Wisconsin. We call our supporters Friends of Old World.
Since its founding in 1984, with help from our supporters, Old World Foundation has given $9 million in gifts that have given visitors a meaningful and memorable experience at Old World Wisconsin while preserving this treasured historic site.
Old World Wisconsin is a state historic site, owned and operated by the Wisconsin Historical Society. Private support is crucial to providing items outside of the site's operating budget that would otherwise go unfunded. Thanks to you, Old World Foundation has funded items such as: the heritage breed animal program, heirloom gardens, historic building preservation, school field trip subsidies, collection items for guests to use and enjoy, marketing materials, and special programs.
See why it is so important to become a Friend through Old World Foundation. Thank you for your support!
