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 Basic Needs Giving Partnership.
The Basic Needs Giving Partnership supports the people and places advancing equity and economic well-being for everyone in Northeast Wisconsin.
BASIC NEEDS GIVING PARTNERSHIP
In 2007, the J. J. Keller Foundation announced its intention to match grants up to $800,000 annually, and the Basic Needs Giving Partnership was formed. They have since added $11.6 million to our grant making. Inspired by J. J. Keller Foundation’s $800,000 grant making investment, Oshkosh Corporation joined as a $250,000 lead grant partner and ThedaCare & Thrivent Foundation joined as $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.
