WISCONSIN RURAL OPPORTUNITIES FOUNDATION AWARDS LOANS

MADISON, WIS. – Wisconsin Rural Opportunities Foundation, Inc.

Since its inception, the Foundation has empowered over 5,000 individuals with over $5.8 million in scholarships and grants in agricultural and rural health care education in more than 30 Wisconsin institutions and programs.  As a 501(c) (3) charitable foundation, WROF has made a tangible, positive impact on the economic health and quality of life in the state’s areas.  For more information, visit www.wrof.org .
