Charity Begins at Home

The greater Wausau area will greatly benefit from a $1 million gift to the Community Foundation, which has established a donor advised fund named the George D. & Estelle B. Wolff Family Fund. “Charity begins at home and Wausau has been our home,” George stated as he turned his donation over to the Foundation. “There are many things going on here in which we have been involved and supported, and many more may need some help over time. I’d like to do that for this community.”

Jean Tehan, executive director of the Community Foundation, states “We have had the privilege of working with many generous donors in our 27 year history who have contributed substantial assets over time that have provided for projects and programs that enrich our community. We are deeply honored that the Wolff’s, as well as all of our other donors, have the trust and confidence in us to administer their funds for the benefit of this wonderful community.”
