Thanks for your support!
Also, thank you for visiting our homepage! We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, established in 1980 and is based in Madison, Wisconsin. 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 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 40 year history.
As a fiscal sponsor to the community groups, we are able to accept tax-deductible contributions on their behalf. We charge a nominal fee in exchange for providing this service. In addition to being able to accept charitable donations, we provide these groups with other support such as mentoring and small grants.
There are ten active groups currently working with the PC Foundation. Please take a few minutes to explore the website to learn more.
We have some exciting news to share in 2019!
We'd like to welcome our new board member, Sandy Olson!
The PC Foundation welcomes two new partner groups, the Wisconsin Transgender Health Coalition and the Free the 350 Bail Fund!
Established in May 2015, the Wisconsin Transgender Health Coalition (WTHC) is a grassroots, community-driven coalition convened by and for transgender, intersex, nonbinary, and gender nonconforming (TING) people that focuses on improving the health and wellness of TING people and communities throughout the state of Wisconsin. WTHC works to achieve healthcare equity and health justice for TING people in our state by: increasing access to competent, affirming and affordable healthcare for; eliminating interpersonal, institutional, and state violence against; and ending discrimination in all life and public spheres that impacts TING people and communities. WTHC maintains a directory of affirming healthcare providers at witranshealth.org. For more information or to get involved in the work, please join the WTHC Facebook page (facebook.com/WITransHealthCoalition) or contact us at email@example.com.
The Free The 350 Bail Fund brings together organizations and individuals already working to provide the support necessary to meet people's needs and build robust communities so that incarceration can be dismantled. We also join the nationwide call to abolish money bail, a form of state violence that locks people up only for their inability to pay. While we work towards dismantling this modern-day slavery disguised as the so-called justice system, we're not going to wait, but Free The 350 ourselves.
