Milwaukee, Wis. (10/31/13) — SaintA received a $5,000 check today for Independent Living Services from the Willis Foundation. Willis is the insurance broker for our agency.
Marcia Harris of Willis contacted our Chief Financial Officer, Bridget Fassett, to tell her about the foundation, through which any Willis employee can request a grant for a client. Bridget facilitated getting information on ILS from Chief Program Officer Frank Gaunt and VP Ann Leinfelder Grove, and the foundation agreed to the grant.
“We are very grateful to Willis for this donation,” Ann said, “particularly because ILS is the only one of our programs that does not receive significant money from government sources. This money will be well spent helping our ILS clients in their transformation to independent young adults.”
