Through Impact Club, as Impact Venture Capitalists, we invest heavily in local charities that demonstrate a powerful “Story Engine,” and have proven their willingness to fight for their cause – by competing in and winning a high-stakes competition. As a result, Impact Club, through Impact Venture Capitalism has dramatically multiplied the Impact that a single person can have on charities in their local community.
Since 1981, Homeless Connections has adapted to meet the needs of people both homeless and at-risk of homelessness in the Fox Valley community. We collaborate with the community in the fight to end homelessness and work to improve the quality of living for all people. A growing need for shelter led to the lease of a home in 1983. Then its purchase in 1986. This home was later expanded to 25 beds in 1995. Our mission? Ending homelessness by connecting individuals and families to resources that promote self-sufficiency.
For the past 16 years, we’ve been serving Wisconsin brothers and sisters as the Fox Valley Sibling Support Network. We believe the family is the most important support system and can best help children, in particular children growing up with siblings who have developmental disabilities or long-term illnesses, if provided with information, services, and encouragement. We are strengthening our role as the Wisconsin chapter of the national Sibling Leadership Network, and will continue to connect siblings throughout Wisconsin.
Founded in 2009 by Jim & Sue Spierings, after Jim survived Stage IV Tongue/Throat Cancer. The foundation holds an annual fund raiser called Rock Cancer. Rock Cancer is an all day concert held at Doyle Park in Little Chute to raise money to fund our mission. 100% of the money raised is turned back into the local community to provide grants to families struggling financially due to Cancer; provide grants to the local hospital/Cancer centers with a goal of enhancing cancer treatment in the Fox Cities; and support Cancer research in the State of Wisconsin.
