The Raibrook Foundation

Now in our 25th year, the Raibrook Foundation is dedicated to providing support to local non-profit organizations which strive to improve the communities we serve and to assist projects that reflect the philosophy of our founder.


Dedicated to improving the lives of generations to come

The Foundation, a tax-exempt public charity was founded on May 15, 1990. Begun by a local philanthropist, it grew out of his deep affection for the area and his desire to enhance it for current and future generations, including preserving and fostering an appreciation for the natural beauty, open spaces and distinctive history which are so integral to our extraordinary quality of life.

The staff and board of the Foundation are committed to our founder's vision and to his love of Door County. Our goal is to perpetuate his legacy and advance our mission by supporting non-profit organizations in projects related to education, recreation and history.

For may years, our foundation has acted as a catalyst for learning and discovery in Door County and has provided support to many local organizations. It is our hope that the work of the Foundation and the vision of our founder will extended beyond this time and place - improving the lives of generations to come.
