2014 Community First Fund Partnership Commemoration

In 2014, WWBIC’s loan fund received a $1.25 million boost from Federal Home Loan Bank of Chicago (FHLBC) as the first recipient of their newly established Community First Fund.  To commemorate this partnership the FHLBC honored WWBIC with a tree planting ceremony at the sight of WWBIC’s new Milwaukee office.  Congresswoman Gwen Moore, representatives from FHLBC, WWBIC, area banks, partners and small business owners participated in a roundtable discussion before the ceremony collaborating together on ways to grow strong communities.


2014 Reception at the Governor's Executive Residence

Annually, WWBIC hosts a collective meeting for our statewide committee members to review WWBIC’s work supporting economic development in Wisconsin. Collaborating on efforts to bring WWBIC’s mission to the marketplace is ongoing.  Small business literally rolled up to the doorstep at Wisconsin’s executive home this year as various WWBIC’s small business food truck clients and vendors entertained a crowd of roughly 125 supporters.
