Kohl’s (NYSE: KSS) today announced 28 local non-profits as recipients of a combined $500,000 in grants through Kohl’s new Hometown Giving Program. The organizations will use the funding for programs within Milwaukee County focused on areas such as poverty, safety and education.

“Kohl’s was born and raised in the Milwaukee area, and we have a deep and long-standing commitment to supporting organizations that strengthen our community and make Milwaukee a great place to live and work,” said Jen Johnson, Kohl’s vice president of communications. “This year, we’ve added a new way to support local organizations that are making a positive impact for families throughout our region. We’ve been so impressed by the ingenuity and inventiveness of the proposals we’ve received. These esteemed non-profits are proof that big impact can be made by small groups of dedicated people focused on improving the world around them.”

Launched in September 2017 with an initial call for grant submissions, the Kohl’s Hometown Giving Program allows Kohl’s to continue addressing vital community needs in addition to Kohl’s existing Milwaukee-area efforts.
