$1.8 million in grants will fight poverty

Posted on Jun 17, 2013, by

Our President/CEO Curt Detjen speaks during the news conference The Basic Needs Giving Partnership announced grants of nearly $1.8 million to more than 80 nonprofit organizations in northeast Wisconsin during a news conference today. The grants from the Partnership, which is a collaboration between the U.S. Venture Open Fund for Basic Needs, the J. J. Keller Foundation and community foundations in the Fox Valley, Oshkosh and Green Bay, are directed to nonprofits that address the root causes of poverty.

Basic Needs and Self-Sufficiency is a focus of the Community Foundation for the Fox Valley Region’s grantmaking, and it’s a growing need in our community.   News release

There’s still more work to do, and you can help to make a difference in the lives of others. You can triple your investment in these real poverty solutions with a first time-gift or increase in the amount of last year’s gift to the U.S. Venture Fund for Basic Needs within the Community Foundation for the Fox Valley Region. We and Jewelers Mutual Insurance Company, for its 100th anniversary, will match $75,000 in community contributions made by June 28. Learn more and give online now
Together, we can do more!
