The 2010 production of Foundations in Wisconsin marks the 29th edition of the print directory and the 10th anniversary 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 Web sites, annual reports, and newsletters.

While the total number of active grantmaking foundations increased to a record high 1,314 (with 123 new foundations identified), the total grants and assets declined to pre-2007 amounts. Total grants decreased by 7% to $473 million, total assets decreased by 18% to 5.6 billion.
