Did you know that Milwaukee is one of America’s top 10 impoverished cities, with a poverty rate of 29.4% in 2011; and among minorities, 41% of Milwaukee’s black population and 35% of Hispanics live below poverty levels? 

Here at Bridging the Gap Learning Center, Inc. (BTG), our goal is to lay the foundation for underserved communities to have access to the resources and opportunities necessary to engage and compete in our economy.  We believe the cycle of poverty can be broken through our core areas of focus:  education, skill job training and placement, entrepreneurial training and professional services.

In order to make this a reality, we aim to build a state-of-the art Entrepreneurial Center that will be devoted to supporting economic development throughout the Milwaukee Metropolitan area.  In order to fund the construction of this facility, we are proud to announce the launch of our ONE BRICK AT A TIME Capital Campaign to raise $500,000.

We are committed to rebuilding communities and changing lives, and ask for your help.

Help support our efforts by making a financial donation today.  For donations of $25 or more, you can leave a lasting impression by purchasing a personalized brick that will be permanently displayed at a designated location within the new facility.  You may choose to have your name engraved in the brick, have it inscribed in memory or in honor of a loved one.  There are four donations levels available:
