Mike Faust was honored recently for all his work with the Somerset Community Foundation.
Faust was awarded the Somerset Community Foundation Friend of the Foundation at the Foundation's recent Celebration of Giving.
The Friend of the Foundation award is given to a community member who supports the mission of the Somerset Community Foundation, which is to foster, nurture and enhance the quality of life and to serve as a leader, catalyst and resource for philanthropy.
Faust exemplifies the qualities of philanthropy.
"Mike is a man who has served our community and gives back generously," said foundation chair Randy Rosburg.
The Somerset Community Foundation was established in 2012 to enhance the quality of life in Somerset.
The St. Croix Valley Foundation was established in 1996 by local individuals in the valley who saw the benefits that a community foundation could bring. It has approximately $60 million in assets under management. It serves the region through 10 local affiliated foundations in Hudson, New Richmond, Somerset, River Falls, Prescott and Amery and the Northwest Alliance in Wisconsin; and in the Lower St. Croix Valley, Stillwater and Chisago Lake foundations in Minnesota.
