WE Did It! Thank YOU for Helping Us Meet Our Year End Giving Goal!
Our donors and friends have helped make a difference in 2015. It has been a year of many successes; from breaking attendance records at our two signature events to increasing our impact across SE Wisconsin, we’re proud to share with you our latest achievement.
The bar was set high for our Year End Giving Appeal at $15,000…and because of you, we made it!
This was our first year of participating in #givingtuesday, a national day of giving. We carried the theme of giving on Tuesdays throughout the month of December to encourage the spirit of philanthropy- stressing the importance of collective giving and how our cumulative efforts can continue to increase our impact.
Thanks to your generosity, Cream City Foundation granted more than $111,000 to 27 LGBT and Allied organizations in SE Wisconsin. Cream City Foundation grants are having a sustaining impact on the organizations that have received them. In many instances they have been in the truest sense foundational, providing a stability that has allowed them to serve and grow with the needs of our community. Without you, our LGBT and Allied friends, the Foundation could not serve the many needs of our community.
If you weren’t able to participate with a gift in December, it’s not too late to still make a difference. A gift of any amount is meaningful.
Your gift at work…
$1,000 helps research the needs of our community, such as the grant to the Milwaukee LGBT Community Center’s “New Day Project.”
$500 helps shape LGBT Leadership development through Cream City Foundation’s LGBTQ Scholarship Program.
$250 helps with operating costs to groups like Holton Street Clinic, who can’t operate their programs without the support of an operating grant.
$100 helps bring awareness to the LGBT experience through arts & culture, such as The World’s Stage Theatre Co. and the Milwaukee Repertory Theater.
$50 helps fund a sponsorship grant for educational and leadership events, such as Planned Parenthood’s “Safe Healthy Strong” conference.
$25 a month can assist the Giving Society and create a larger grant that YOU can help decide at the end of each giving cycle. Cream City Foundation is the BEST WAY to make even a small gift make the biggest difference!
