From the ground up
In many ways, looking back on our 50-year history makes clear how many things haven’t changed. We are still fighting for racial justice. We are still advocating for fair housing. We are still defending voting rights. We are still pushing for clean drinking water, breathable air, and solutions to the climate crisis. Change is slow and incremental.
Thanks to you and donors like you, a few organizations helping the community 50 years ago grew into a movement that continues to this day. Your support today is as critical as ever for building a thriving equitable community.
As Community Shares of Wisconsin’s founder Candace Weber states in a recent interview, “Don’t stop; change takes time.”
Together we transform our community.

We fund nonprofits that acknowledge the systemic impact of racism and other forms of oppression that result in disparities in access to economic and social success. We prioritize acknowledging, identifying, and disrupting policies and practices that perpetuate poverty and inequality because we believe they are the root causes of injustice and must be addressed for real, lasting change.
