The Tracy Family Foundation was incorporated in December 1997, by the Robert and Dorothy Tracy Family. The second generation of the Tracy Family created the Foundation as a vehicle to share their many blessings and as tribute their parents, Robert and Dorothy Tracy. Since its inception, the Foundation has operated with a vision. Our vision is to make the world a better place through engaged, thoughtful, and strategic philanthropy.
The Foundation will build a legacy of leadership and generosity among Tracy Family members as they engage with unity and passion in the work of the Foundation. Through the Foundation, a grateful and philanthropic spirit will be cultivated among all Tracy generations present and future. The Tracy family will actively engage in building improved, sustainable change in Brown County, the surrounding region, and in their own communities.
The Tracy Family Foundation exists to provide resources to organizations that foster the values of Robert and Dorothy Tracy – a Catholic/Christian belief, honesty, integrity, fairness, and a strong work ethic. The Foundation seeks to proactively strengthen Brown County in Illinois and the surrounding Region by investing in the education, youth, families, and the capacity of these communities. The Foundation is also the vehicle for developing a philanthropic spirit among Tracy family members.
