The Evjue Foundation
For 23 years, Access Community Health Centers has provided care for thousands of people in need, thanks to ongoing support from The Evjue Foundation.
The charitable arm of The Capital Times, the Foundation has provided $1.165 million in support, funding many programs at Access, most of them providing care to children. In addition, The Evjue Foundation was a major donor to Access’ campaign to open our clinic on East Washington Avenue, the now William T. Evjue Clinic, as well as our school-based Celebrate Smiles children’s dental program.
William T. Evjue founded Madison’s Capital Times in 1917 and was its long-time publisher and editor. He set up the foundation before his death in 1970 to use profits from the newspaper to help, “those without the power of wealth and station,” and to give back to the community that supported his newspaper.
