*May be of interest to the LGBTQ community
Join our annual Breakfast with OPEN speaker series featuring Peter J. Holbrook, CEO of Cream City Foundation (Milwaukee)! Why is philanthropy important to our LGBTQ community, specifically?
Holbrook says: “LGBTQ philanthropy matters desperately to the future of our community. It is about providing our goodwill to the LGBT communities we belong to and our active efforts to promote its wellbeing. Philanthropy is about creating a culture of giving of money and time to make life better for other people. You do not have to have a lot of money to make a difference. You only need to care!”
Peter will explore why LGBTQ philanthropy matters and what we can collectively do to make a difference. Local nonprofits that serve the LGBTQ community will be onsite to discuss ways you can get engaged with their mission!
