Foundation Grants

  • A grant from the Jerome J. and Dorothy Holz Family Foundation makes possible the complete rehabilitation of a vacant, foreclosed home in the Washington Park neighborhood.

  • The Green Bay Packers Foundation is helping us make much-needed renovations to the Washington Park Pool Building.
  • A grant from the Rexnord Foundation is supporting our Neighborhood Revitalization strategy. Since 2013 and through 2018, we are concentrating our projects in one neighborhood – Washington Park.
