The 2020 publication of Foundations in Wisconsin is the 39th edition of the print directory and the 20th year of the online database. 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, and annual reports.

Wisconsin foundations showed continued growth in both the number of active foundations and, most especially, the total grants which are at an all-time high of $811 million. Additionally, 39 new foundations have been identified this year (see page 269 for the complete list).
