CREAM CITY FOUNDATION NAMED AMONG THE TOP FUNDERS NATIONWIDE FOR FUNDING LGBTQ COMMUNITIES

Funders for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender & Queer (LGBTQ) Issues, a nationwide network of foundations & corporations working to expand philanthropy for LGBTQ communities, named Cream City Foundation to its 2014 Honor Roll of national grantmakers supporting LGBTQ causes.

While more than 60 percent of the top foundations in the U.S. made no LGBTQ-specific grants in 2014, 91 foundations increased their grantmaking by 25 percent or more. Cream Foundation is the only Wisconsin community foundation to make the 2014 Honor Roll.

Cream City Foundation awarded $115,000 to 27 LGBTQ and allied organizations in 2015. Founded in 1982 with $500 seed money, the Foundation has invested more than $1.2 million dollars in grantmaking initiatives improving the wellbeing of the LGBTQ community in Southeastern Wisconsin.

Cream City Foundation President and CEO, Peter J. Holbrook, Ph.D., said, “Being among the top nationwide funders of LGBTQ initiatives is an honor and demonstrates Cream City Foundation’s commitment to the LGBTQ community of Southeastern Wisconsin. For nearly 35 years, we have been dedicated to mobilizing the philanthropic resources necessary to raise awareness and address the needs of our community, collectively changing the narrative and lived experience of LGBTQ people.”
