Cream City Foundation serves as a catalyst for social change on behalf of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender (LGBT) communities in southeastern Wisconsin.
To achieve our mission, the Cream City Foundation:
• Mobilizes philanthropic resources
• Funds initiatives that target system-level change, taking into account race, class, gender and age.
Geographic areas served: southeastern Wisconsin
Programs: Analyzes the needs of the LGBT communities, includes convening of leaders and stakeholders. Grant committee determines and solicits applications to address need and that appropriate programs are funded.
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.
