Milwaukee, WI – Jan. 27, 2014 – St. Ann Center for Intergenerational Care will bring its award-winning and nationally renowned intergenerational programming to Milwaukee’s north side, thanks in part to a grant from the Greater Milwaukee Foundation.

The Foundation awarded $100,000 to the nonprofit during the fourth quarter in support of its capital campaign for a new 80,000-square-foot facility. St. Ann Center plans to begin construction in March 2014 at a 7.5 acre site between North 24th and 25th streets and North and Meinecke Avenues. The new center will be larger than its existing campus in St. Francis and will be able to serve nearly twice as many children. The new building also will have new services – such as a medical and dental clinic – not available at its south side site.

“The Foundation is pleased to provide capital support to these important projects,” said Kathryn Dunn, vice president of community investment.

The project is one of 10 new construction and renovation projects the Foundation supported during the fourth quarter through a total of $736,790 in special capital grants funding. The Foundation has not made significant capital grants through its competitive grants process since 2011.
