About the GF-Town of Stillwater Foundation

As part of the development of the Fab 8 project, GF has contributed a total of $5 million to fund two stand-alone 501 (c)3 charitable foundations: the GF-Town of Stillwater Foundation and the GF-Town of Malta Foundation. The first installment of $1 million was used to build a new recreational sports field complex in the Luther Forest Technology Campus and to make improvements to the Round Lake baseball fields.

Leveraging the investment income from this original seed money, these foundations have distributed more than $1.7 million dollars in funding to over 450 organizations in support of a wide variety of programs benefiting the local community around Fab 8. Both foundations are managed by an independent Board of Directors and are actively working with local organizations to improve our communities.
