Compass points to "strategy"

Richard M. Schulze Family Foundation Awards $100,000 Grant

This month, the Richard M. Schulze Family Foundation awarded Jeremiah Program a $100,000 grant to fund the organization’s new Strategic Growth Plan activities over the next year, officially bringing the total lifetime giving from the Foundation to over $1M. “We are proud to have been able to support Jeremiah Program across a wide variety of initiatives over the past fifteen years,” said senior program officer, Mike Zumwinkle. “Jeremiah Program is a strong example of the positive change that can happen in our community when we invest in families holistically.”

Jeremiah Program’s new Strategic Growth Plan calls for the organization to quadruple its impact for single mothers and children by 2023. Under the leadership of new Chief Executive Officer, Chastity Lord, the first year of this plan will focus on building a strong infrastructure to support this growth and significantly increase the organization’s ability to disrupt poverty, two generations at the time. “This is an exciting time as we embark on a new chapter for Jeremiah Program,” said Lord. “It will take a constellation of support to reach our ambitious but achievable goals, and we are beyond grateful to our supporters like the Richard M. Schulze Family Foundation who help make this happen.”
