Skip and Jill Thaler Family Endowment Fund

"We owe a lot to the community and to our parents who gave us the good fortune of being brought up here." - Skip Thaler"

As a perpetual gift to the community, this fund is the Thaler's way of expressing gratitude for their parents, the lasting friendships they've made in Chippewa Falls, and Chippewa Falls' small-town sense of community. 

Both Minneapolis and Chippewa Falls are home to Skip and Jill (Kroll) Thaler, but the latter is truly "home." Jill graduated from Chippewa Falls Senior High School; Skip graduated from McDonell Memorial High School.

The two started a brokerage business in Minneapolis and eventually opened a second, home office, in Chippewa Falls. They raised three children while growing the business and now have several grandchildren.


The Skip and Jill Thaler Family Endowment Fund is donor-advised.  Skip and Jill, and subsequently their children, will select the nonprofits that will receive grants.
