Local News

Green Bay Packers Give Back announced Wednesday morning they’re donating $250,000 apiece to 5 area organizations for a total of $1.25 million in impact grants.

The five recipients of those grants were revealed by Packers President and CEO Mark Murphy at a check presentation at the Lambeau Field atrium.  They are:

  • The Golden House, a domestic violence shelter, who will use their grant to expand their programming space to meet the needs of victims
  • Encompass Early Education and Care, which provides early child care and education services, who will use their grant to renovate aging playgrounds and invest in technology resources
  • HSHS St. Vincent/St. Mary’s Hospital Foundation, who will use their grant to expand capacity to accommodate steadily increasing pediatric admissions
  • The Center for Childhood Safety, who will use their grant toward funding for a permanent home for their organization
  • Give BIG Green Bay, an online initiative where community members can give to local causes they support.  The campaign’s successful first year raised more than $800,00 for Green Bay non-profit organizations.

The $1.25 million in total impact grant money is the most ever given at one time by the Packers Foundation.
