Wisconsin Historical Society Foundation

The Wisconsin Historical Foundation was established in 1954 for the exclusive support of the Wisconsin Historical Society and the Society’s mission. The Foundation currently supports the Society in several capacities, including fundraising, membership, special events, and external relations. The Wisconsin Historical Society is both a state agency and a private membership organization. Founded in 1846, two years before statehood, and chartered in 1853, it is the oldest American historical society to receive continuous public funding. By statute, it is charged with collecting, advancing, and disseminating knowledge of Wisconsin and of the trans-Allegheny West.
