About the Wisconsin Historical Foundation

About the Wisconsin Historical Foundation | Wisconsin Historical Society


The Wisconsin Historical Foundation exists to advance the mission of the Wisconsin Historical Society: to help people connect to the past by collecting, preserving and sharing stories.


We will work toward a future in which all individuals, families, communities and institutions actively use history to understand their own story and the world around them, and to pass their heritage on to succeeding generations.

About the Wisconsin Historical Foundation

The Wisconsin Historical Foundation, a 501(c)(3) tax exempt organization, receives grants and private contributions benefitting the Society and administers the membership program.
