Editorial: Supporting ‘passion, ingenuity and tenacity’ through the Madison Community Foundation
MADISON, Wis. — The Madison Community Foundation is about legacy and community impact. To advance the latter MCF’s annual grants to Madison area nonprofits support the critical work of serving the needs of all of the greater Madison region’s citizens with an important emphasis on diversity and inclusion.
Monday, MCF announced just over 600-thousand dollars in grants to 22 nonprofits. The recipients include innovative arts spaces like the Arts + Literature Laboratory and Monroe Street Arts Center, recreational spaces like Dane County’s parks, arts outreach projects and more. MCF vice president Tom Linfield says because of the passion, ingenuity and tenacity of nonprofit leaders, agencies are galvanizing volunteers, raising dollars and making Dane County an extraordinary place to live.
Area philanthropists large and small contribute to the Community Impact Fund because they trust MCF to invest those dollars smartly and effectively. Monday’s announcement of the grant recipients is evidence of the wisdom of that trust.
