The Impact

Between 2000 and 2014 Ho-Chunk, Inc. has contributed more than $53 million to the Winnebago community. These contributions had a $100.7 million impact on the Reservation.*

Ho-Chunk Way is a voluntary program that invites Ho-Chunk, Inc. employees to donate to important causes in the Winnebago community. Ho-Chunk, Inc. matches all employee donations up to $25,000 annually.

Each year, the Ho-Chunk Way Committee designates a specific priority program that needs financial support.
