GBIG Sets Up a Nonprofit Foundation
The Green Bay Innovation Group has formed the Green Bay Innovation Group Foundation effective December 2023. The GBIG Foundation formed from its past and present activities as we continue to move forward supporting our Businesses and Communities. We continue to follow our Mission Statement.

  1. The primary activity is to raise funds to donate to other non-profits, local charities, causes and education. These activities are done through leveraging our connections, sponsorships, golf outings and events with a focus on the 5P and Converting Industries.
  2. These activities are conducted by our Board of Directors and Volunteers.
  3. Our activities are conducted in Green Bay and across the State of Wisconsin.
  4. Ninety percent of the time is allocated to this activity./
  5. The activity furthers the exempt purpose of making financial contributions and grants to charities and causes.

The Green Bay Innovation Board of Directors wants to thank our Sponsors and Supporters.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year,
Marty Ochs
