Every penny counts! Because of the citizens of Dunn County our community endowment grows more each day. Every year we award tens of thousands of dollars to non-profit organizations and community groups that provide a charitable service in the areas of education, health, recreation, the environment, arts and culture, preserving our heritage, and basic needs.
