Amherst H. Wilder Foundation
"Empowering people and communities to be agents of change"

The Amherst H. Wilder Foundation combines knowledge, compassion and action to improve lives today and for generations to come. We create lasting, positive change rooted in people through direct services, research and community building.
We have adapted to meet existing and emerging community needs for more than a century, drawing upon the strengths of our community to develop smart solutions to the challenges we face together. Today, we are shifting our services to meet the interconnected economic, health and education needs of entire family systems.
Our programs and services offer hope and support to people throughout their lifespan, including school success, mental health and wellness, family stability, community leadership and healthy aging. Our research services help communities thrive by turning information into impact.
We are listening to the people who come through our doors and trusting them to tell us what they need. Together, we are exploring options, accelerating solutions, and helping people and communities be agents of their own change.
