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.
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.
