From the Beginning
The Free Clinic of Pierce and St. Croix Counties has relied on the generous financial support of local individuals, service groups, businesses and foundations. While donations of time and supplies are important, the Free Clinic’s annual budget includes about $200,000 that must be raised through donations, special events, grants and other fundraising efforts.
During its start-up years, the Free Clinic was been fortunate to receive significant support from a few funders, including grants from the Wisconsin Office of Rural Health, the Kinnickinnic Health Foundation (now the River Falls Area Hospital Foundation) and the Otto Bremer Foundation. The Free Clinic also received a large one-time federal appropriation, thanks to the recommendations of former Senator Herb Kohl and Congressman Ron Kind.
