Waukesha County Provides Raises Nearly $85,000!
On March 9, Waukesha County Community Foundation (WCCF) was honored to host Waukesha County Provides, a community giving day to raise charitable donations for basic needs agencies that provide food, shelter, safety and hope to county residents in need. Thanks to the support of so many generous donors, this single-day giving event raised nearly $85,000 to support The Women’s Center, Hebron House, Hope Center and the FOOD Pantry of Waukesha County.
Waukesha County Provides was launched in 2016 when executive directors from The Women’s Center, Hebron House, Hope Center and the FOOD Pantry of Waukesha County joined forces to raise awareness and funds to support the agencies’ basic needs programming. The collaboration garnered support from Waukesha County Executive Paul Farrow and Mayor Sean Reilley, recognizing that area nonprofit agencies are a large part of what makes Waukesha County a great place to live, work and play.
Enhancements to this year’s day of giving included a central, online donation platform on the WCCF website, where donors can easily support one or all participating agencies, a pool of matching funds, and a community celebration on March 9 at the Waukesha Public Library.
