Dear Members and Friends,

We welcome you to our annual membership drive for 2020. For twenty four years the G/L Community Fund has provided Milwaukee’s community with the needed support that channels charitable contributions to organizations working to promote the LGBT rights, services, culture, and community development.

Yearly we ask for your help with a $25 membership to continue our work with gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender people and their allies to advance the human rights of LGBT people in Southeastern Wisconsin.

Over the past year we were able to provide aid to eighteen different LGBT groups, totaling several thousands of dollars. They all express their thanks and are always in need of volunteers and your personal commitment to their efforts.

This past year we were able to help seven additional organizations that are not listed among the coalition’s groups that we help yearly. Among the groups we were able to help was the Milwaukee Alliance School that serves LGBTQ students that are bullied and need a safe place for nurturing with a friendly environment, and Courage MKE that provides housing and other services for homeless youth.

In conclusion, we hope you will be able to help with a yearly membership. A secure membership donation can be made thru our website or by using the enclosed envelope.

Some of you may have already renewed your membership during our holiday appeal. We thank you for your early support. Our annual report will be mailed to all our members in May 2020.

Thanks for your help.

Sincerely,

Si Smits,
Executive Director

P.S. Proudly serving the community for 25 years.

Dear Members and Friends,

Enclosed you will find the G/L Community Funds annual report for 2017. We make our annual report available to all members and friends that have helped the foundation over the years.

This year Mr. Philip Amador, Mr. Donald Schwamb, and Mr. Darren Letner have been reelected for three years terms.

During the past year Diverse & Resilient, established in 1995, working on the healthy development of LGBT people in Wis., has joined the coalition of organizations that we work with. Also, we have received a gift of one thousand dollars to open a Wisconsin gay history and archives fund to help several under funded history programs in the state. If this is something you would be interested in helping, please consider a gift to that fund.

During the spring of each year we do our annual Endowment Fund drive. During the past years we have been fortunate enough to use the Endowment Fund to help the community with gifts and grants. The Endowment Fund is where your gift will be used in our long-term plans to benefit the community in future years. With your gift we will be able to continue our work. All gifts will receive the tax advantage of a public charity.

We hope you will help with a donation today.

Sincerely Yours,

Si Smits
Executive Director
