Fox Wisconsin Heritage Parkway

A non-profit organization dedicated to the improvement and preservation of the Fox and Wisconsin Rivers.


Partnership Through the Sharing of Funds

One particularly relevant definition of “partner” in the Merriam-Webster Dictionary is: “One of the heavy timbers that strengthen a ship’s deck to support a mast —usually used in plural”

The Fox-Wisconsin Heritage Parkway values its current partners and hopes that you will consider joining us in our love and dedication to the river, its history, and the communities it connects.

Donations are very much needed to strengthen our ship. Our long-range plan is to set as many mission appropriate revenue streams in motion as we are able, so that we will be self-sustaining one day. This is just as important for nonprofits as it is for other businesses. But for now, we still rely on the generosity of those individuals and organizations who are able to see what we are doing and see the value that it brings the region.

Take some time to explore our history, what we are about, our planning documents and see if they speak truth to you. If they do, please consider a donation.


    Donation Opportunities

    The Parkway organization relies on the support from private citizens and local businesses who want to preserve the historical resources along the Fox and Lower Wisconsin rivers.

    All donations are 100% tax-deductible and go directly back into Parkway communities to continue our efforts to meaningfully preserve, promote and celebrate the heritage of our rivers.

    We, of course, are grateful for any level of donation that you are able to give. We do have a structure in place, if you are looking for guidance as to amounts.

    Adopt-A-River Mile – Individual

    Adopting a mile along the Fox or Wisconsin Rivers for two years can be made with a tax deductible gift of just $535 per mile, $267 per one-half mile or $134 per one-quarter mile. With your donation, you will receive a certificate, suitable for framing, acknowledging how much you love your river.

    We also have many that have gifted us with in-kind volunteers and financial sponsorships targeted toward specific projects or events. See the tab below for sponsorship options.

    The Parkway has been working tirelessly helping out-door enthusiast and history buffs explore the river corridor from Green Bay to Prairie du Chien. Many of your employees and customers are already enjoying the land and water trails with their many historic sites along the way or stopping in at the fine dining and lodging establishments on the water.  Your support of the Parkway will be noticed by hundreds who visit the Parkway website and participate yearly in the many events found on the Parkway’s event calendar.

    The mission of the Parkway is to exemplify and promote the natural, recreational and historic resources within the Fox and Wisconsin Rivers corridor and create additional opportunities for history interpretation, education, recreation, and tourism.  If your corporate mission aligns with the Parkway’s mission, please consider getting involved, partnering with the Parkway to preserve these natural resources for generations to come.
