Many corporate foundations have a policy of
 awarding grants to communities where
 they have a facility

    Weyauwega)

    Manitowoc, Onalaska)

Final Thoughts…

―Think of grantmakers as investors --
  because they are. Grants are not free
  gifts given to good people who want to do
  good things. Grants are investments in a
  specific outcome for the philanthropic
  dollars given.‖

    (Maryn Boess, Grants & Foundations Review, April 2006).
