GREEN BAY, Wis. (WFRV) – The Greater Green Bay Community Foundation is encouraging nonprofits in Oconto and Kewaunee counties facing hardships due to the COVID-19 pandemic to apply for its community fund.
The foundation announced on Monday that Oconto and Kewaunee County nonprofit organizations that are in need of funding to support increased service demands can apply to Green Bay’s Community Foundation, to receive help.
The community foundation notes that more than $742,000 in funds has been made available for some of the most immediate calls for assistance throughout Brown, Oconto, and Kewaunee counties thanks to generous donors and community partners.
