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've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

leading the charge for societal change and supporting efforts to do so also.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

continue to engage other organizations in the area.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

being a part of the events

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

exceptional, compassionate.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

foster and develop other organizations and support them more fully.

Ways to make it better...

it has been all good.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

society's misunderstanding of the LGBT person.

One thing I'd also say is that...

I am proud to be associated with CCF!

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.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Growing membership and capital, building coalitions with diverse community organizations and businesses, gaining local and statewide media coverage.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Beg Maria Cadenas to continue as executive director.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Being valued as a volunteer and learning more about effective ways to bring about social change.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

From communities representing the diversity of Milwaukee and southeastern Wisconsin particularly. They frequently comment about the quality of leadership and of the events Cream City Foundation sponsors annually.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

It could fund more deserving organizations, pay its staff an amount that realistically reflects their skills and effectiveness, and bring about even more change in government policy pertinent to the LGBT communities around the state.

Ways to make it better...

I lived within walking distance of the CCF office!

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

Funding in this recession.

One thing I'd also say is that...
