I am a former donor. I no longer give money to this organization as it does not give clear guidelines for who they will or will not give a grant to. I prefer to give my money directly to the organizations that serve the LGBT Community.

In the past this organization helped seed the current Milwaukee LGBT community.

I have seen CCF grow and adapt over the years. It has been able to do this with the leadership of its board and current Executive Director, Maria Cadenas. CCF is leading the charge to help influence and change the society and how the LGBT individual is looked upon and respected.

I have volunteered with Cream City Foundation for over two years, and working with the staff and board has been a pleasure. From working behind the scenes and at events, I've been impressed with the loyal support and high energy members of the LGBT community and our allies have shown. CCF is a powerful advocate for equality and social change in Wisconsin.

Funding in this recession.

As a former Board member, I personally know of the greart work the CCF has been doing for over 2 decades. As the President of PrideFest and client of CCF, I understand the importance of CCF's support. Last year PideFest developed a new section within the festival itself, our Health & Wellness area. We feel very strongly that this section was needed to help inform and reach out to the LGBT community about the disparities that health care provides the LGBT community. CCF's support was instrumental in getting this area funded; and gave credibility to the project for other funders to come aboard.

Really finds creative ways to create change in the LGBT community! From GayNeighbor.org, QShareBusiness.org, and its efforts to impact LGBT Youth Homelessness - not to mention it's true caring of donor stewardship! Cream City Rocks!
