Mission: NFI is dedicated to promoting community stability (for urban and rural areas) by assisting those who invest in the development of low-income communities.
Results: Launching a fundraising event called: “Give a Nickel: It’s a Nice Thing”.
This campaign is NFI’s way of raising funds that won't break the bank. The smallest donation of a nickel could greatly support our efforts.
As we see it, if NFI raises 2 million nickels, then NFI will have the necessary capital to help improve our communities…so…We need your help!!!
Target demographics: NFI is committed to the resolve of issues which create the circumstance of generational poverty as it pertains to workforce and economic development. Our organizational view is designed to address the issues through a two pronged approach: preventive and reactive.
• The preventive approach focuses on the growth and development of students: those entering the workforce in the near future (high school and undergraduate college students).
• The reactive approach deals with young and older adults able to join the workforce. These sections of individuals are those that range in age from 18-64 who are chronically unemployed and grossly under skilled.
Geographic areas served: The NFI PiFIR pilot will be located in the central city of Milwaukee as the socioeconomic characteristics support the need. This program is set to run in over the course of four years. The ten zip codes defined as the Cities lower socioeconomic status (SES) group are as follows: 53218, 53216, 53210, 53208, 53215, 53206, 53205, 53233, 53204, and 53212
I am really excited to get involved with the Nice Foundation. I truly believe in the mission of the organization and what they are trying to do in making a positive change in the urban and rural areas of our society. I am very confident in Mia Price and her ability to make this organization successful in making a positive change. Overall, I feel that once everyone know about the Nice Foundation they will be able to have their message gain more momentum.
The idea of social responsibility and broadening my horizons brought me to the Nice Foundation Inc. Once I started working there I realized just how special of an organization it was. NFI is teaching a man to fish, not giving him the fish. Its empowering the community's teens by teaching them responsibility and workforce skills. Its empowering the community businesses by helping to obtain and retain talented and ethical employees. And its empowering college students by providing invaluable internship experience and teaching them the value of community. And most importantly, it will fight generational poverty. When I walked into the door and experienced first-hand the ambition and vision of Mia (founder), I knew that it was possible to change the city for the better.
