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. Click here for a grant application!
