The Milwaukee office of The Opus Group and the Opus Foundation today announced grants of more than $200,000 to support 14 southeastern Wisconsin non-profit organizations.

“Community stewardship has been a priority of the Opus organization for more than 60 years,” said Julie Ledger, vice president and general manager of Opus Development Company, L.L.C.’s Milwaukee Office. “Opus is proud to support our community through these nonprofit organizations.”

The Opus Foundation awards grants in two categories, the Impact Fund and the Opportunity Fund. The Impact Fund supports strategic investments in human and community development and the Opus Opportunity Fund is designed to meet pressing and emerging needs in communities where Opus does business.

Recipients of the Impact Fund are Boys & Girls Club of Greater Milwaukee, Habitat for Humanity, Notre Dame Middle School, Schools that Can Milwaukee, and the YMCA of Metropolitan Milwaukee.

Recipients of the Opportunity Fund are COA Youth & Family Centers, Girl Scouts of Wisconsin Southeast, Guest House of Milwaukee, Lake Valley Camp, LISC Milwaukee, Milwaukee Montessori School, Real Estate Alliance for Charity (REACH), Rebuilding Together and The Lutheran Home.

This year’s grant recipients have a number of diverse missions and causes, including but not limited to childhood education programs, financial aid for low income families and targeted neighborhood revitalization efforts.
