President's Message

Dear friends of the Bay Area Community Council,

I am pleased to announce that we have recently received a major contribution to help underwrite the work of our Council in the area of foresight analysis.  The Weyers Family Foundation has given us a $10,000 grant to help fund the fall 2019 foresight analysis training of 10-15 community leaders from business, government, education, and the nonprofit sectors. The Foundation sees the value of our work. It’s contribution will help us continue to support a variety of organizations throughout our community as they learn how to better anticipate and lead change for the betterment of our greater Green Bay community. As Tracy Weyers, a director the of the Foundation stated, "The BACC’s work has had high impact community-wide. Because of this we feel honored to help them bring foresight analysis workshops to the business, education, government and nonprofit sectors of our community. This work will inform and positively influence all of us as we navigate the waves of change ahead of us.” 

By 2018, the BACC outgrew the parenting of its three co-founding organizations. This change has given us the freedom to explore multiple avenues in which to partner with other community groups in planning for the future. Because of this change, we are now responsible for additional fundraising for the valuable work of our Council.  Contributions like this do so much to encourage our volunteer board to enhance the deep thinking that needs to occur for the betterment of the greater community.  We are continuing to seek sponsors for the Bay Area Community Council.  Interested parties should contact us at  office@bayareacommunitycouncil.org for information regarding further funding opportunities. 

Thank you, Tracy Weyers and the Weyers Family Foundation for your outstanding gift!

Paul Demuth
