The 2015 release of Foundations in Wisconsin marks the 34th production of the print directory and the 15th year of the online version. The directory is designed as a research tool for grantseekers interested in locating information on private, corporate, and community foundations registered in Wisconsin. Each entry in this new edition has been updated or reviewed to provide the most current information available. Most of the data was drawn from IRS 990-PF tax returns filed by the foundations. Additional information was obtained from surveys, foundation websites, annual reports, and newsletters.

Wisconsin foundations have shown significant growth in two key areas. Grant and asset totals have risen to to their highest recorded levels. Total grants increased by 5% to $579 million and assets by 17% to $9.5 billion. Additionally, 58 new foundations have been identified this edition. (See page 271 for the complete list.)
