The Abele family members serve as the Board of Trustees; John is the chairman and Jeneye Abele is the President & CEO. The foundation's headquarters and staff are located in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Partnerships are not limited to traditional program areas, but instead emphasize a due-diligence approach to making strategic, leveraged investments followed by continuous learning for future partnerships. The mission of the Argosy Foundation is to support people and programs that make the society a better place to live. They seek to employ creative and entrepreneurial approaches that help people to help themselves, and become self-sustaining whenever possible. The intention is to solve systemic problems, build teams and communities, create replicable solutions, and inspire others to contribute in their own ways.
