Your generosity will help ensure our growing community succeeds in the Northwoods.

“You just don’t have all the answers when you’re an entrepreneur. To have a group of people like the VCEDC who have been in business, running businesses, who can advise you on how to better improve your business is invaluable.” – John McGraw; Chippewa Retreat Resort & Great Wisconsin Steak Company

November 15, 2023

Dear Friends,

Comments from business owners like John McGraw above exemplify the mission of the Vilas County Economic Development Corporation (VCEDC) to build a strong, resilient Northwoods economy.

What does that mean to you? It means providing expert business guidance to hundreds of businesses that you enjoy and find essential in Vilas County – restaurants and pubs, gift shops, heating & cooling contractors, salons, pet shops, garden centers, resorts, and many more. VCEDC support helps ensure that Vilas County provides a welcoming, supportive environment for businesses, and that they thrive in Vilas County. This leads to a growing tax base and improved quality of life for all of us.

Therefore, on behalf of the VCEDC, I am writing to invite you to support our annual fundraising campaign with a tax-deductible donation. Your financial contribution enables us to continue to provide leadership on broadband expansion, and essential guidance and programming to businesses including an array of financial services, business planning, educational programming including AI and e-commerce, all at no charge. We invest in the future in other ways as well such as hosting national entrepreneurs such as Craig Culver, Co-Founder & former CEO of Culvers, to speak to nearly 600 students at Northland Pines High School – all to help educate and inspire future generations to perhaps someday, become business owners in Vilas County themselves.

We hope we can count on you. Please mail a check to Vilas County Economic Development Corporation, PO Box 1621, Eagle River, WI  54521 or donate clicking the donate button below.

With your gift you are playing a key role in ensuring that we enjoy a resilient economy and ideal quality of life, which is why we all choose to live and work in our beautiful Northwoods.

Sincerely,

Jim Tuckwell
Board Chairman
