Rhinelander Youth Projects
The Rhinelander Community Foundation’s newly established Rhinelander Youth Project Fund is ensuring needs are met – both large and small.
Nativity Catholic School and Zion Lutheran School acquired water coolers with bottle fillers through the Youth Project Fund.
The School District of Rhinelander had multiple school and class needs met including Play Packs with supplies for virtual learning, allowing students to participate in MAPES lessons virtually as well as promote physical activity and exercise outside the school day.
The Rhinelander Community Foundation was pleased to facilitate over $100,000 in donations in 2019 earmarked for the Hodag Sports Complex Dome, with another $25,000 granted in 2020. The dome is now inflated and will provide year-round access for students, the community, and senior citizens. The 128,000 sq. ft. dome is the largest high school dome in the country and includes fields for football, soccer, and softball. It will also provide facility space for community events such as trade shows, community gatherings, and other public events.
