The Sharing Center awarded grant from The Kenosha Community Foundation

The Sharing Center in Trevor is among the not-for-profit organizations awarded grants from The Kenosha Community Foundation recently.

The foundation awarded grants totaling $56,150 to 13 Kenosha County not-for-profit organizations and projects from the income earned by the Foundation’s unrestricted endowment funds.

The Sharing Center was awarded funds to support its Resource Center and Emergency Service Programs that helps
rural residents of Kenosha County. The Sharing Center is a resource center and food pantry located in Trevor, serving Western Kenosha County.

According to Executive Director Robert Schneider, the Foundation awarded these grants in alignment with the #WhatKenoshaNeeds community needs assessment survey that the Community Foundation conducted (in partnership with the Kenosha County UW-Extension) in November 2017.

“Most of the 13 grants will address needs in three priority areas that were identified in the #WhatKenoshaNeeds survey – especially programs that address the impacts of substance abuse; provide mental health services, and deliver local transportation options for numerous Kenosha County
residents,” Schneider said.

With these grant awards, the Foundation completes its competitive grant making for 2018. This year, the Foundation awarded competitive grants to not-for-profit organizations totaling $109,299 – a 2 percent increase from 2017 ($107,000). Earlier in January 2018, the Foundation awarded $53,149 in grants from its four Field of Interest funds.
