Cream City Foundation’s QShare will distribute $5,000 in grants, to be divided evenly between Alliance School and the LGBT Center of Southeastern Wisconsin.
The LGBT Center in Southeastern Wisconsin was established in 2009, thanks in part to a grant from the Cream City Foundation. It is the only LGBT organization based in Racine.
“The services this center provides are necessary for a healthy, engaged and proud community,” said QShare member Todd O’Leary, of Visit Milwaukee.
Alliance School is a charter high school in Milwaukee that’s modeled after the Harvey Milk School in San Francisco. It provides a safe space for youth to learn and grow.
“The students at Alliance School are truly remarkable in the self-aware, fearless way in which they approach learning and life,” said QShare member Geoffrey Trotier, an attorney with Davis and Kuelthau Attorneys at Law. “I am thrilled to know that QShare is able to contribute to the development and support of the Alliance School.”QShare is Milwaukee’s LGBT professional network. The group will present an LGBT Business Luncheon, Equality=Business Growth, on Oct. 28. For more information about the event, go to biz.creamcityfoundation.org.
