$1.1 million grant seeds healing for families and children
Families and children facing physical and substance abuse, mental illness and more are experiencing FSPA's seeding a legacy of healing through a $1.1 million grant given to Family & Children's Center of La Crosse, Wisconsin.
The grant, announced on May 11, is part of FSPA's Seeding a Legacy of Healing mission. Funds will support FCC’s operating costs and endowment to support programs and services for children and families in need and fulfill FSPA's commitment to nurturing relationships that stretch us to be people of encounter with those suffering in our Earth Community.
“Our goal with Seeding a Legacy of Healing is to invest, or seed, the funds received from the transaction with Mayo Clinic into collaboration and making good things happen with our existing ministry partnerships with nonprofit organizations,” said Sister Julie Tydrich, who also served on the board of directors for FCC from 2014 through December last year.
“We want to help our nonprofit partners become more self-sufficient by supporting areas too often overlooked: operating costs and endowments,” she added.
