Blanchardville/Hollandale Area Fund

The Blanchardville/Hollandale Area Fund was cre­ated to assist peo­ple who love Hol­lan­dale and Blan­chardville, and to bring sus­tain­able resources to our com­mu­ni­ties, our orga­ni­za­tions and our peo­ple. Click here to make an online donation.

Why have a fund?

Woven together by the Peca­ton­ica River, the vil­lages of Hol­lan­dale, Blan­chardville, and sur­round­ing areas share a com­mon life, com­mon goals, and com­mon dreams.

The Blanchardville/Hollandale Area Fund is a resource to assist our com­mu­ni­ties to thrive and main­tain our high qual­ity of life.

The fund rec­og­nizes our his­tory and strong cul­tural roots, and encour­ages the cre­ativ­ity and inno­va­tion of our most impor­tant asset — our people.

In pro­mot­ing our com­mu­ni­ties, the Blanchardville/Hollandale Fund seeks to increase com­mu­nity involve­ment by encour­ag­ing — and sup­port­ing — local initiatives.

The fund will pro­vide for the needs of our com­mu­ni­ties now and in the future, and will max­i­mize your char­i­ta­ble tax deduc­tions while sup­port­ing com­mu­nity projects.
