When Door County Community Foundation President and CEO Bret Bicoy took over the reins 10 years ago, the organization was still under the umbrella of the Greater Green Bay Community Foundation. Now, the Door County Community Foundation is governed by local people and has collected over $26 million over the last decade since Bicoy was named to the position to help in its transition to independence. Bicoy says a single project does not stand out, but is proud of the spaces it has been able to enter and help.
Bicoy credits the community for the foundation’s success, which has distributed over $16 million to local charities in the last 10 years.
