Thanks to the generosity of the Greater Green Bay Community Foundation, you will see several Kewaunee County organizations get much-needed funds for their mission. The organization awarded the grants through its Funds for Greater Green Bay program. Seven different Kewaunee County organizations were among the more than two dozen groups that will share over $312,220. Approximately $30,000 will head specifically to Kewaunee County as a result.
