Over the past 14 years, the Rotary Foundation of Green Bay, Inc. has distributed over $1,000,000 to various organizations in the greater Green Bay area. These funds have been raised by the Free Enterprise Award event and through donations from Rotarians and friends.

This year, the Rotary Foundation, in cooperation with partners at the Greater Green Bay Community Foundation (GGBCF) has selected Foundations Health & Wholeness to be the principal recipient of the proceeds of this prestigious award event! A minimum of $50,000 of the sponsorship proceeds will be presented to Foundations. The remaining dollars will go to the Rotary Foundation of Green Bay to support other programs in Brown County that positively impact the health and education of children.

Foundations Health and Wholeness provides approximately 15,000 counseling sessions to the Brown County community annually, as well as providing top-quality Foster Care services throughout Wisconsin and preventative youth outreach services. Foundations will dedicate funds received from the Free Enterprise Award event to counseling services to support children and teens, as well as their families, in Brown County.

Please purchase your tickets today to join Foundations and the Rotary Club of Green Bay for a night of celebration!

Foundations Health & Wholeness

Foundations Health & Wholeness serves the community by healing mind and spirit through mental health counseling and foster care.

Mental Health Counseling

  • Our main clinic offers full range of mental health and addiction services.
  • We partner with social organizations in ten different locations to embed our therapists to serve children and adults with significant barriers to care, including those living in poverty, experiencing homelessness, the aging and people with disabilities. These satellite clinics offer an opportunity for us to train and supervise the next generation of licensed therapists and address the scarcity of licensed therapists in Wisconsin.
  • We also provide counseling at three public schools. We are the founder, and an active member, of Connections for Mental Wellness, a coalition of mental health care providers seeking to reduce the number of poor mental health days.

We provide approximately 12,000 mental health sessions every year, plus casual support, psycho-education, and over 500 hours of service on mental health tasks forces and committees. About 60% of our clients are either uninsured or under-insured, and we keep our doors open to everyone in need of mental health counseling.


In foster care, we recruit, license, and train foster parents. We work with counties throughout Wisconsin to provide placement and case management for children in need of loving foster homes. We provide treatment-level foster care to support children have experienced trauma, and have higher emotional and physical needs. Through our foster care offices in Green Bay, Greater Milwaukee area, Sheboygan/Lakeshore area, the Fox Valley, and soon Janesville, we serve over 130 children every year. The number of children we serve grows every year.
