The Hugh J. Andersen Foundation’s mission is to give back to our community through focused efforts that foster inclusivity, promote equality, and lead to increased human independence, self-sufficiency and dignity. To fulfill this mission, the Foundation acts as a grantmaker, innovator, and convener.


The Hugh J. Andersen Foundation was incorporated on March 2, 1962. The original board members were Hugh J. and Jane K. Andersen, and Hugh’s sister, Mary Andersen Hulings. They strongly embraced Andersen Family values learned from Fred, Molly, Isabel and Kitty Andersen:  giving back to the community, being responsible citizens, and caring for their neighbors. The current board members continue to uphold this commitment, strive to build upon this spirit of philanthropy, and remain strongly supportive of the St. Croix Valley area.
