Community Support

Fromagination makes contributions to support our greater community.  Below are three examples of recent recipients, and our donation policy.

Former Donor
Fromagination owner Ken with Proud Theater members

Proud Theater

In Green Bay, Madison, Milwaukee, Sun Prairie & Wausau, Wisconsin

“Proud Theater has blossomed from a rag-tag group of dreamers to a highly polished, structured theatrical model that provides a place of support and nurturing for its participants, while pursuing its activist mission to “change the world through the power of theater.” Like all families, we are a composite of those who have so meaningfully been a part of our family history – youth and adults alike. The PT family is a unique space where queer-aligned youth can engage in in-depth discourse with several generations of diverse, queer-identified adults. By serving as role models, inspiration, and educators to one another, youth and adult participants both benefit from the other’s lived experiences.”  – provided by the Proud Theater website

Fromagination participates in CWD's Youth-Business Mentoring Program

Common Wealth Development

Youth-Business Mentoring Program
Helping Teens Enter the Job Market:

Common Wealth Development has been providing area teens with training and enriching first job experiences since 1991. With the current economic climate, the unemployment rate for the nation’s teens is approximately triple that of adults. Our Youth-Business Mentoring Program helps level the playing field.

Job Placement Follows 3-Week Training:

Our Youth-Business Mentoring Program provides youth an intensive three week pre-employment training, followed by a job placement with a supportive business. We begin by teaching teens how to effectively find, apply for, and interview for jobs.

Our Donation Policy

Fromagination makes donations to organizations and events which foster social and economic empowerment.  Our community support reflects our gratitude to Madison and the greater community around us.

We give preference to projects pertaining to health, nutrition, food and agriculture.

We try to focus those donations within the south-central Wisconsin area, and specifically Madison neighborhoods in which we do business.

We take our commitment to philanthropy very seriously, but are not able to support every worthy cause.

 Donation Guidelines

Before considering a request for a donation from Fromagination, ask yourself two questions:

  1. Is my organization or event clearly charitable in nature?
