July 2021

From Our Executive Director

Greetings! We’re excited to show you our improved newsletter format. This will allow us to reach more people & keep you informed of the latest happenings at the Foundation and in Marshfield. Take care. We hope you’re enjoying summer!

New This Quarter

We recently worked with Riipen Company and had two interns from Canada. Their project was focused on our social media. We were so impressed with their level of knowledge as well as their ability to learn about the Marshfield Foundation and incorporate many of their ideas to improve the look of our social media and increase the number of people reached.

Another highlight was our new staff member…Ana Jepsen. She joined the Marshfield Foundation on June 1st! She is jumping in to learn all about our donor process as well as be the point person for our scholarships. Feel free to send her a little welcome note:

Community Updates

Our Grants & Scholarship committee has been busy awarding scholarship and community grants.

Over 60 scholarship funds were able to award 145 scholarships totaling more than $150,000 this year! Our scholarship committee extended an additional invite to students to apply for scholarships specific to UWSP-Marshfield so those scholarships wouldn’t go unused.
