Pleased to Announce Grants to Area Nonprofits

We are pleased to announce that nine nonprofits in Southeast Wisconsin will be receiving grants totaling $48,000.

These grants will go to various LGBT friendly non-profits in Southeast Wisconsin. Grants support HIV care, programming for LGBT youth and older adults, as well as the arts and community events.

“The beautiful thing about the Cream City Foundation is that we are able to bring together nonprofit organizations and donors who have the same goals of improving the lived experiences of LGBT people in Southeast Wisconsin,” said Pete Holbrook, President and CEO of the Foundation. “We’re thrilled to be able to support so many worthy programs through this latest round of grants.”
