Living Legacy Circle Renamed

The Board of Directors of the Community Foundation of Central Wisconsin at its December meeting voted unanimously to rename the Living Legacy Circle to the Heinz Living Legacy Circle, in memory of the late Arthur E. Heinz who left his estate of nearly $4 million to the Foundation.

“The Foundation has been the recipient of many memorial and estate gifts, both large and small, since its inception in 1982. But Art’s gift is different. The size of the gift significantly increases the Foundation’s ability to meet its mission and give back to the community, the effect of which will be felt for many, many years. The Board felt it appropriate that the impact of Art’s gift be memorialized by adding his name to the Living Legacy Circle.” said Terry Rothmann, Executive Director.
