General

  • Mission:
  • Common Wealth builds a connected community for all in Dane County through affordable housing, youth and adult job support and training, business incubation, and engagement.

  • Overview:
  • Common Wealth appreciates this opportunity to request $2,500 from The Lawrence Foundation, in support of our award-winning youth programs. We are grateful for the opportunity for The Lawrence Foundation to partner with us in our efforts to provide young people in our community with the education, skills and opportunities necessary for them to exercise greater control over their financial futures. This grant will provide our program with stability as we solidify our funding base to move forward sustainably.

    Common Wealth has a 25-year track record of effectively delivering high-quality programming that provides underprivileged area teens with employment and financial education and opportunities. Our flagship Youth-Business Mentoring Program is a year-round program that will serve 135 students. We will serve an additional 100 students in our Employment and Financial Literacy Workshops. Through these two programs, in 2015 we will provide opportunities for 235 teens to learn and apply financial and employment skills and to start taking steps to healthier financial futures.

  • History:
  • Common Wealth is a private non-profit community development corporation that was incorporated in 1979. Our mission is “Common Wealth builds a connected community for all in Dane County through affordable housing, youth and adult job support and training, business incubation, and engagement.” Our goals are: 1) to provide employment and financial education and opportunities for low-income and at-risk youth; 2) to promote the creation of new living wage jobs for low-to-moderate income people while improving the local business climate; 3) to create affordable housing for people with limited incomes; 4) to preserve and improve older housing stock while preserving the community’s socio-economic diversity; and 5) to involve our constituency in community-building activities.
