About the Funders:

Sisters of Precious Blood, Maria Anna Brunner Grant Fund
The Maria Anna Brunner Fund was initiated to offer financial support for endeavors that improve the socio-economic condition of those suffering from poverty; to empower them to take their rightful place in church and society. The fund was named in honor of the foundress, Mother Maria Anna Brunner, who was exemplary in responding to those in need. Through this fund, the Sisters of the Precious Blood strive to promote just social structures and to counteract the many forms of violence prevalent in the world today. In their allocation of funds, they support approaches that address these needs and encourage collaboration among individuals, groups and organizations. 

Anonymous Foundation
Each year, an anonymous foundation provides significant grant support to Joseph’s Home. This year, an award was made to Joseph’s Home in the amount of $30,000. 

United Black Fund of Greater Cleveland
Since 1981, the United Black Fund of Greater Cleveland has provided grant funds to needy organizations in the Greater Cleveland area. As a continued supporter of Joseph’s Home, the United Black Fund of Greater Cleveland has provided grant awards that enabled the agency to provide life skills programming through Catholic Charities. This year, the United Black Fund awarded Joseph’s Home money for food and transportation support.
