Community Impact

testimonial author Peg Rowley

"Kantzler started it all. In 1983 The Kantzler Foundation approached me to start up the Bay Area Community Foundation. It funded our operating expenses for several years and worked with us in partnership as we implemented a number of community involvement projects, like the Riverwalk and Pier. When I reflect on great programs and projects like the Community Foundation, Studio 23, The State Theatre, BaySail, the facilities at Wenonah Park, The Civic Arena, The Wirt Library, The Dow Family Y, Playscape at the State Park and so much more, I have to think, 'Where would we be without The Kantzler Foundation?'"
