Old World Foundation recently held its Annual Meeting where they announced that they had gifted Old World Wisconsin with $91,531.53 this past fiscal year (October 1, 2017 - September 30, 2018). In addition to the monetary gifts that have already been awarded to Old World Wisconsin, Old World Foundation holds over $150,000 that is currently available for Old World Wisconsin to use for specific projects and programs in the coming year. Read the full press release.

The Annual Meeting and Reception was a time for our Friends (those who support Old World Foundation with an annual gift) to meet our Board of Trustees, mingle with other supporters, enjoy live music and appetizers, and hear about how their contributions have been used to help Old World Wisconsin this past year.

Two new board members were welcomed and two long-time board members stepped down. See our full Board of Trustees.

With Our Thanks...

We want to thank our Friends and supporters for their continued support of Old World Wisconsin through Old World Foundation! The many projects and programs at Old World Wisconsin could not happen without your help.

Lyles' TV and Appliance in Elkhorn donated a dishwasher and stove to Old World Wisconsin for their use "behind the scenes".

The Hegwood Family donated a beautiful cutter to Old World Wisconsin.

We also would like to thank the Brazelton Family for their donation of Christmas trees and greenery to Old World Wisconsin for An Old World Christmas.

We look forward to the year ahead with much anticipation. This is truly a time to give thanks for what has already been accomplished and what will be attained in the coming year with the continued support of our Friends !
