In 2005, the Fond du Lac Area Foundation established the Legacy Awards to honor those individuals, families, companies, and organizations that have significantly impacted the quality of life in the Fond du Lac area through outstanding community philanthropy. Awards are distributed annually at the Celebration of Giving.

The Fond du Lac Area Foundation focuses on growing long-term legacy philanthropy so that charitable assets are available to help nonprofits thrive in challenging as well as prosperous economic times. The Legacy Award is given to individuals, families, or organizations that work in partnership with the Foundation to accomplish this goal. Legacy Awards celebrate the leadership role each awardee has in strengthening area nonprofits and creating a more dynamic Fond du Lac County.
