Brown County Commitment Statement
As the geographic region of the Tracy Family Foundation continues to expand in years to come, it is the intent of the Board of Trustees to forever remain financially committed to Brown County. Applications from this area will always be given highest priority for funding if their requests match the mission of our Foundation.
The Foundation is striving for Brown County to be recognized as a “magnet community” – one in which people of all ages desired to live, work, raise a family, and settle into their golden years. In a joint effort with hundreds of community members working on this same goal, progress is being made.
