Unveiling a new look

Earlier this year AEF turned 24 years old! To honor how AEF has grown, we are unveiling a new look to carry us into the future.

The Look

We’ve kept our purple and green and made them more vibrant – much like the Foundation itself. These colors are a visual representation of the Foundation’s independence.

Our tree remains strong but has more purple leaves. The original purple leaf illustrated the change gifts to the Foundation would create. With nearly 25 years of grantmaking in the rearview mirror, the Foundation – thanks to our donors – has been able to create a lot of change (about $5 million worth of change) and we are just getting started!

Our Mission

The mission to creatively enhance education in our community remains. As a Foundation, we will continue to work with donors and community partners to ensure the Foundation is a resource for future generations of Appleton educators and students.
