Oppose Alzheimer’s

with Park Vista Senior Housing Management

The Greywolf Foundation is pleased to partner with Park Vista Senior Housing Management on its Against Alzheimer’s Initiative. The goal of the initiative is to raise awareness of the challenges related with this disease and associated dementia and to raise funds for the treatment, care, and research opportunities which are combating Alzheimer’s disease.

In 2023, for the third year in a row, the GWF and PVSHM are joint sponsors for the Walk To End Alzheimer’s in Wisconsin. This sponsorship supports four different walks throughout Wisconsin held in September and October. Communities where the walks are held include Stevens Point, Milwaukee County, Fox Cities and Dane County. The walks are organized by the Alzheimer’s Association Wisconsin Chapter and more information can be found on their website. Additionally, walks in Clinton, Iowa and East Moline, Illinois are also supported by these join efforts.

In conjunction with the walks, staff, residents, and families at several of PVSHM’s senior living facilities conduct fundraising activities to support the Against Alzheimer’s Initiative. Already in 2023, money has been donated from Noel Manor, Noel Manor Legacy, Legacy of Deforest, Waupaca and Legacy Waupaca, Park Vista Camanche, Park Vista North Hill and Willow Lane Assisted Living in Appleton.

During the month of August 2023, the Against Alzheimer’s Initiative will again be the beneficiary of the BB Jack’s Cottage Grove’s Pizza with a Purpose program. During this month, the popular family sports bar/restaurant will donate $5 from every Pizza of the Week sold to the Against Alzheimer’s Initiative. This includes both dine in and carry out options. Visit BB Jack’s Cottage Grove for more information on Pizza with a Purpose program.

Last year the Oppose Alzheimer’s Initiative fundraising efforts generated more than $24,000 to the Alzheimer’s Association of Wisconsin. Individuals and businesses who wish to support the Against Alzheimer’s Initiative can make a gift on our Give Now page and typing Against Alzheimer’s in the Purpose for Gift section.

As a company, Park Vista Senior Housing Management’s mission is to create and manage senior housing communities that convey the essence of home while providing happiness and peace of mind to residents and their families. PVSHM has eight senior living and care facilities, in three different states, offering services for independent living, assisted living, and memory care.

Bob and Melida Scholarships

with University of Wisconsin Madison

In 2022, the Greywolf Foundation established two scholarships with the University of Wisconsin Foundation, the Bob & Melida Wagner Excellence in Social Work and the Bob & Melida Wagner Excellence in Nursing.

Each of these scholarships awards financial assistance to a selected student at UW -Madison studying for a master’s degree at the Sandra Rosenbaum School of Social Work and a selected student at the UW-Madison enrolled in the School of Nursing. The scholarships are awarded annually according to each respective school’s established procedures. Preference for each scholarship includes first-generation college student; graduate of a public high school; and/or a caregiver.

Bob and Melida Wagner have lived a life of service to others. Bob discovered and fed his passion for helping others with a diverse career in social work that has had a positive impact on thousands of underserved people throughout the State of Wisconsin. Melida celebrated her caring nature with extensive education, training, and teaching in the nursing profession. She provides care and comfort to people in pain in both her native Colombia and later throughout Wisconsin.
Both personally and professionally, Bob and Melida are thankful to live a life of positivity, cheer, commitment, and care for others, whether family, friend, or strangers. Through the annual awarding of these scholarships, they hope many others will discover and experience similar joy and gratitude that has defined their life together.

Holiday Giving Campaign


This year, the Greywolf Foundation is providing two options for Greywolf Employees to help improve the Holidays for two different groups of deserving people: Park Vista Holiday Cheer Campaign & Bridge to Brighter Holiday Care Campaign

Read More

Greywolf & Park Vista Holiday Cheer Campaign

The Holiday Season can be a lonely time for residents in senior living and care facilities, but it does not have to be! We’re partnering to provide some Holiday Cheer to all Park Vista Senior Housing Properties and each of their residents.


We’re collecting money to be donated for Holiday Cheer events at all eight of Park Vista’s properties. The Holiday Cheer events will be decided by management at each property and will include treats such as hot chocolate, eggnog, cookies, candy bags, etc.


Greywolf & Bridge To Brighter Holiday Care Campaign

Bridge To Brighter is a local charity that assists young men in the Milwaukee area who age out of the foster care system at 18 years old and must adjust to handling living, employment and education/training realities on their own.


Bridge To Brighter is currently working with six young men and hopes to extend their services to aid young women when they have the needed resources. We’re partnering to provide some needed aid over the Holidays to each of the young men in the Bridge To Brighter program.


We’re collecting money to then purchase both a Target Gift Card and a Pick ‘N Save Gift Card for each of the young men with the Bridge To Brighter program to use as needed over the Holiday Season.
