The B.A. & Esther Greenheck Foundation was established in 1998 by Bernie and Esther Greenheck. Today, their son-in-law and daughter, Brian and Sandy Gumness — as well as their grandchildren and several community leaders — play an important role in managing the foundation and preserving Bernie and Esther’s legacy.
The B.A. & Esther Greenheck Foundation operates completely independently of Greenheck Fan Corporation. Our purpose is to provide financial support for meaningful projects in North Central Wisconsin that enhance the area’s arts, education, health, economic and social development resources. We encourage people to submit clear, concise grant applications. Our board of trustees evaluates grant applications six times each year.
