The Press Connection Foundation,  Inc., is a 501(c)(3) non-profit  organization, established in 1980. Although the legal name of our group is the Press Connection Foundation, we use the name "PC Foundation."  We have a board of directors, which meets annually, for a business meeting and election of new officers.  We do as much as we can to promote local opportunities for community groups that partner with us on projects. PC Foundation has been privileged to work with many projects and groups over our 30 year history.   

As a fiscal sponsor to the community groups, we are able to accept tax-deductible contributions on their behalf.  In exchange for providing this service, we charge a nominal fee.  In addition to being able to accept charitable donations, we provide these groups with other support such as mentoring and small grants.

There are currently eight active groups working through the PC Foundation. Explore the website to learn more.

The PC Foundation welcomes a new member group: 
                                                                     Operation Welcome Home

  http://www.owh-wi.org/about  Contact: zhaukeness@gmail.com

Operation Welcome Home is a grass roots organization dedicated to helping solve issues of Human Rights and focused on ending homelessness.

 

 Here, homeless and formerly homeless, low and no-income, incarcerated and formerly incarcerated people work in collaboration with community allies in Madison, WI. We are a community of homeless people and allies in Madison organizing around the root causes of homelessness and fighting for affordable housing, jobs, and an end to the criminalization of poverty.

 

While we develop and politicize our members of our community, we work to hold agencies and institutions accountable to their role in self perpetuating system of poverty. Our work involves strong efforts towards social justice, as well as empowering others with the tools to help progress.

 

Allies work shoulder to shoulder with us in the struggle to foster real change - understanding that we all deserve to have our basic needs met and power over the decisions that affect our lives. We want, need, and welcome support, but more importantly, we need solidarity.

This family-friendly event was organized around the world annually in remembrance of the devastating humanitarian effects of the nuclear bombs dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, Japan during World War II. This year’s speaker in Madison was Caren Stelson, author of Sachiko: A Nagasaki Bomb Survivor’s Story, a 2017 Jane Addams Children’s Book Award recipient. Her book retells the true story of six-year-old Sachiko Yasui’s survival of the Nagasaki atomic bomb and the lifelong aftermath. 

This annual event was sponsored by Physicians for Social Responsibility-Wisconsin and cosponsored by Women's International League for Peace and Freedom, Pax Christi-Madison, P.C Foundation, The Gene and Linda Farley Center, Outrider Foundation, Lambda Theta Phi Latin Fraternity-Gamma Theta Chapter and Willy St. Co-Op.
