Mission Statement

It is the goal of the Amery Area Community Foundation to enhance the quality of life in the Amery area and all of Polk County. We hope to do this by encouraging the establishment of endowment funds to serve the local community now, and in the future, by providing leadership and resources. 

Giving Back

A community foundation offers donors,, like you, simplicity and flexibility in charitable giving, maximum tax advantages and the knowledge that your gift will benefit the community in perpetuity. Your contributions provide long-term investments and these assets grow in what is called a permanent endowment. Earnings from these assets are then given back to the community in the form of grants to improve the Amery area.

The Amery Area Community Foundation is operate by a volunteer Board of Directors which includes community leaders who are your friends and neighbors. The Foundation focuses its efforts on providing funding in the areas of education, human services, civic projects, youth and the environment.

Amery Area Community Foundation is an affiliate of the St.Croix Valley Foundation which professionally manages and safely invests your assets.
