Welcome to Old World Foundation
Old World Foundation is a local, independent non-profit organization. With YOUR Support, the special projects and programs of the Old World Wisconsin Historic Site are funded. We call our supporters Friends of Old World. Since its founding in 1984, OWF has given $7 million in gifts that have given each visitor a meaningful and memorable experience at Old World Wisconsin while preserving this treasured historic site.
Thanks to you, Old World Foundation has funded items such as the following:
•Major exhibits like Thomas General Store, Caldwell Hall, and Pleasant Ridge.Why? Old World Foundation is passionate about Old World Wisconsin. Its inspiring stories and engaging exhibits deserve to be enjoyed today and preserved for future generations. Old World Wisconsin is a State Historic Site, owned and operated by the Wisconsin Historical Society. Private support is crucial to providing items outside of the site's operating budget that would otherwise go unfunded.
•School Field Trip Subsidies for children who may not have otherwise been able to come to Old World Wisconsin and Day Camp Supplies for the children.
•Support for the Heritage Breed Animals including feed, veterinary care, breeding, farrier services, fencing to contain the animals, and tractor repair.
•Items for the Heirloom Gardens such as bulbs and plants, and a waterline and hydrant at Raspberry School.
•Chimney cleaning and restoration work on the Historic Buildings.
•Collection items such as reproduction garden tools and mallets, bicycles, tables and more.
•Marketing materials to spread the word about this dynamic historic site, workshops, programs and much more!
The Foundation is a private 501(c)(3) charity, entirely separate from Old World Wisconsin and the State of Wisconsin. With your help, we can preserve Old World Wisconsin's treasures, grow its audience, and create exciting experiences for all to enjoy.
WE'VE MOVED! The Old World Foundation office has moved just 7 doors East to 229 E. Main St. in Eagle. Our phone number and email address have remained the same. Our new space will allow us to better serve our Friends!
