HOW DOES ONE EVENT DRIVE CHANGE?
Hundreds of golfers, partners and volunteers enjoy an extraordinary event for a critical cause: ending poverty. U.S. Venture pays all expenses of the event. 100% of donations go to the Fund within area Community Foundations.
BASIC NEEDS GIVING PARTNERSHIP
In 2007, the J. J. Keller Foundation announced its intention to match grants out of the fund up to $800,000 annually, and the Basic Needs Giving Partnership was formed. They have since added $7.5 million to our grant making, with an additional $1.6 million committed through 2019. Inspired by J. J. Keller Foundation’s $800,000 grant making investment, Oshkosh Corporation & ThedaCare joined as a $200,000 lead grant partners.
GRANT APPLICATION SUBMISSIONS
Nonprofits collaborate and submit grant applications that address desired outcomes. Grant teams recommend funding for the most impactful proposals in Northeast Wisconsin.
$5.56 MILLION GRANTED
