2020 Chair's Challenge Announced at Mexican Holiday Dinner. OWF Chair, Hans Pregler, announced that the 2020 fundraising campaign will focus on Children's Educational Programming. Old World Foundation will continue to support and fund the gardens, animals, buildings, collections, etc., at Old World Wisconsin as we always have. But this year, we'll have a special focus on Children's Educational Programming. By supporting this initiative, YOU can send a child to OWW on a field trip, to summer day camp or bring fun, hands-on activities to OWW that will help children learn while having fun. In fact, proceeds from the live auction at our Sunset Soiree fundraiser will also be used for this initiative.
NEW BENEFITS For Our Friends ! We're excited to announce an update to our Friends Partner Program! This program is similar to membership programs at other organizations. Those who send in "unrestricted" gifts throughout the year will qualify for exclusive OWF hosted events and programs at Old World Wisconsin. Unrestricted gifts are simply gifts that can be used where needed most and are not restricted to any specific project. These gifts give Old World Foundation the flexibility to maintain and grow our overall support of Old World Wisconsin. Please visit our Friends Partner page for more details.
