The Green Bay Packaging George Kress Foundation was established in 1953 by George F. Kress. He firmly believed that by improving people’s lives, we strengthen our community as a whole.

Today, George’s love of people and dedication to our community continues through the many contributions made by the George Kress Foundation.

Locally, we focus on supporting nonprofit organizations that align with our funding priorities and may also support specific community needs in areas such as arts and culture, civic engagement, education, and health and human services. The Foundation is committed to investing in improving our communities today and for the future.
