Full Circle Campaign History

Running Rebels Full Circle Campaign is a $4.1 million capital fundraising initiative designed to inspire a transformation of hearts, minds, and social and economic circumstances for young people living in Milwaukee. As of June 2018, nearly $2.5 million has been raised. The Zilber Family Foundation made a $500,000 lead gift in November 2016 to support the purchase of the Capital Drive facility. They also committed a $500,000 matching grant to close the campaign. To meet the $500,000 Zilber matching grant, support from other visionary donors is now essential. Please consider contributing to the campaign and helping to secure the future of Running Rebels and our ability to create meaningful change for youth and families in Milwaukee.
