The Community Foundation for the Fox Valley Region has established a new charitable fund for the Parkway!! The Fox-WisconsinHeritage Parkway Fund is intended to provide a dollar-for-dollar match for all contributions received by the FWHP to support the development and implementation of the interpretive master plan. To learn more about this fund, please contact us.

The Parkway is currently seeking a National Heritage Area designation through the National Park Service. As part of this endeavor, the FWHP is raising $300,000 for the completion of an interpretive master plan, economic management plan, and strategic operations plan. These plans are required by the NPS, and will evaluate resources within the Parkway and make recommendations to improve historic education and recreational facilities throughout the entire 280-mile river corridor.

The commitment from our Parkway communities and citizens has been astounding. In total, we have received a generous $255,000 toward our ultimate goal of $300,000.

With $45,000 to go, we need your help! To learn how you can contribute, visit our Support Us page.
