AbbyBank Foundation, Inc.
As AbbyBank prospered and grew, our Board of Directors formed The Abbotsford Story, Inc., a charitable foundation to return part of the profits to the surrounding communities. Since 1968, we've paid-it-forward to the communities that contributed to our success.
In 2020, the bank changed the name to AbbyBank Foundation, Inc. to better associate the foundation with AbbyBank. The name change aligned our outreach to AbbyBank's footprint to encourage grant request in support of nonprofits, school or civic ongoing operations in those communities.
AbbyBank has contributed $1,366,300 to the AbbyBank Foundation, Inc. and donated $1,002,375.65 back to projects in Abbotsford, Appleton, Gresham, Medford, Shawano, Wausau and Weston.
Donations from the AbbyBank Foundation, Inc. are limited to the trade area of AbbyBank, which consists of a 50-mile radius around the Abbotsford, Appleton, Gresham, Medford, Shawano, Wausau, and Weston communities. Requests are granted twice per year, each March and September, according to the Contribution Policy. Deadlines for submission of requests are March 1st and September 1st for each funding period. Each donation request must submit a Grant Request application or other written request. Applicants should be recognized by the IRS as a Tax-Exempt Organization in order to receive consideration.
