A healthy community provides a network of services, including basic social needs. We need to catch people before they fall through the cracks and provide them with tools to strengthen their lives and economic resilience. Failing to meet basic needs not only jeopardizes an individual's quality of life, but also creates more costly and complex problems for our community over time.
The consequences of not providing for basic needs accumulate quickly. Hungry children are absent from school more often than other children, impacting their educational progress. Uninsured individuals and families put off needed healthcare, let prescriptions go unfilled and the results are costly emergencies. Families lacking stable housing often struggle to manage their daily lives. This can trigger a cascade of problems for families that can take months, even years, to recover from.
Grants will fund programs that meet the basic needs, including food, clothing and shelter, of Green Lake County residents.
Grants will NOT fund:
- Endowment campaigns
- Capital campaigns
- Programs promoting religious activities
- Political or lobbying activities
Grantmaking is supported by funds raised by the annual Tee It Up 4 Basic Needs golf outing and local community donations to the Green Lake Basic Needs Fund.
