The foundation was formed in 2003, as an umbrella organization to create accessible events, that inspire grass-roots involvement and enjoyment, while making a contribution to others in need. The foundation strives to emphasize the importance and ability of all individuals to make a difference in their community.




The signature event of the Fillmore Family Foundation is the "Prairie Fairies Fowl Supper". The Fowl Supper is a prairie phenomenon brought to life through the involvement and vision of innumerable church groups and service clubs. Each fall, in celebration of the harvest (bountiful or not) communities gather to share in a down-home Turkey dinner with all the trimmings. Practically every town, large and small, has at least one Fowl Supper. Weekends from September to November are spent driving to the Fowl Supper of the week in Legion Halls to the basements of the local church.


This tradition has spread beyond the prairies and in 1997, a group of prairie transplants organized their first Fowl Supper in the basement of Christ Church Cathedral. Since 1997, there have been eleven Fowl Suppers organized by members of this group and many volunteers, raising over $640,000 for local charities.
