Through your generosity, the Wabasha Kellogg Area Community Foundation can give over $20,000, so far this year, to our local service organizations.   Because of the situation with Covid-19 Pandemic these organizations are being relied on more than ever before.  Thank you to all of you who have helped provide these needed funds with your generous contributions.  WKACF is awfully close to raising that record goal to help our friends and neighbors in need.  Hopefully, you can be the one that puts them over the top.  If you need extra forms, they can be found in the lobbies of our local banks.  Thank you again for your generosity and helping the foundation keep our communities a great place to live work and play.

The Wabasha Area Community Foundation is gearing up for their very successful Free Pool Pass Program again this year.  This program provides free pool passes to all area youth, as well as free bus transportation for those who need it.  We have received many comments and notes on the success of the program and how it benefits all area youth.  I thought I would share a few of these comments with you.

Thanks to everyone who make the Pool Pass Program possible.  M. & P.

Like ducks, all should learn to swim, and your free pool passes allow that to happen.    Thank you,    J.

This program gives our youth the opportunity to acquire skill to stay safe in our river town and begin a sport they can enjoy all their lives.  Thank you,    J.J.

The pool means a lot to me and my Siblings.    J.W.

Thank you WKACF for your efforts to make this community a special place.   D.

I hope this free Pool Pass Program continues indefinitely, as it is a special benefit for our youth.       Thank you,  J.

Thank you for these comments and the many more we received.  The Wabasha Kellogg Area Community Foundation Board are proud and very appreciative of the community support , which has allowed us to provide this program for our youth.  Thank you for your contributions!

You can help us continue this program by sending your donation to WKACF, P.O. Box 268, Wabasha, MN 55981 or go to www.wkacf.org and use the donation link.  Remember to designate your donation to the pool pass program.   If you have any questions or comments, contact Bob Mann, 651-564-1133.



Dear Reader,

The Covid-19 Pandemic can’t last forever.  Wouldn’t it be great to have a free pool pass for all area youth when it ends?  Our area youth would welcome this activity diversion after being pent up at home for a length of time.  With your help the Wabasha Kellogg Area Community Foundation can make that happen.  Please consider a donation to this outstanding program that continues the Foundation’s Mission to keep our communities a great place to live, work and play.

Send your donation to Wabasha Kellogg Area Community Foundation (WKACF) P.O. Box 268, Wabasha, MN 55981.  If you have any questions, call 651-564-1133.

Thank you for your support,

Bob Mann, President  Wabasha Kellogg Area Community Foundation




Dear Reader,

I am writing to you on behalf of the Wabasha-Kellogg Area Community Foundation (WKACF).  The Foundation is committed to continuing our successful project of Local Giving.  In the last 3 years, we have been able to raise over $60,000 for our Local Service Organizations.   You have been chosen to be one of our participants this year.  To do this, we will need your help in preparing and promoting this very important mission.

If your organization would like to be a recipient of this Local Giving fundraiser, there is a MANDATORY meeting on March 25th at 7:00 PM at the American Inn.  A discussion will be held to go over how to improve on this Fundraiser and what your organization will need to do to participate. We are always open to suggestions and ideas.   A REPRESENTATIVE OF YOUR ORGANIZATION MUST ATTEND THIS MEETING TO BE INCLUDED IN THE FUND DRIVE.  We look forward to meeting and working with all of you to grow your funds and make our community continue to be a great place to live, work and play.

Dr. Bob Mann
