We partner with the community to support the people and places advancing equity and economic well-being for everyone in Northeast Wisconsin.

The Basic Needs Giving Partnership invests in local and regional solutions that address the root causes of poverty. Our grants aim to support organizations providing services that are responsive to the current needs of our community and authentic collaborative initiatives that are working to disrupt the policies, practices, and systems that hold poverty in place.
