WPS Charitable Foundation donates $188K so far in 2023
So far in 2023, the WPS Charitable Foundation has donated more than $188,000 to local organizations that support mental health, education, and the essential needs of children, senior citizens, and veterans, a company press release states.
Organizations that received money from the Foundation this year include:
- Boulder Crest Foundation;
- Edgewood College Foundation;
- Mental Health America;
- NAMI National;
- United Way of Dane County;
- Wisconsin Policy Forum; and
- WMC Foundation.
“This year, our Foundation chose to redefine our giving strategy so that half of available funds support organizations that work to destigmatize mental health,” Moira Klos, the Foundation’s vice president of board of trustees, said. “Removing stigmas makes it acceptable to acknowledge when the coping mechanisms people use are not working. It also helps individuals acknowledge the need to seek assistance in their mental health journey.”
