You’ve seen the riots. You’ve seen the destruction.
We’re burned. We’re broken. We’re boarded. But we’re still together.
Our foundation remains strong. There is hope behind the boards. But we need your help to reach it.
Join us today, however you can, to help Downtown, Uptown and the entire city of Kenosha heal.
Funds and proceeds will be dedicated to rebuilding businesses, facilities and related infrastructure directly impacted by the riots, looting, arson, and civil unrest that occurred in the City of Kenosha, Wisconsin beginning the week of August 23rd, 2020. Funds collected will be prioritized but not limited to: clean-up and repair of windows, doors and exterior facades; materials used for internal and external clean-up, graffiti removal, and materials used to mitigate damage (i.e. plywood, fire spray, etc.), and relief for internal damage such as to furniture, fixtures, and equipment replacements; and funds to replace lost inventory. Owner-occupied businesses, leaseholders, tenants, and landlords directly and negatively impacted by these events will have access to these funds through an application process. Priority disbursements will be made to businesses filing for total loss and providing proof of any or all expenses not covered by insurance policies held by the applicants. A community-led committee will prioritize applications and make recommendations for disbursement based on need and an agreed upon and transparent process. The process is dedicated to meet the urgent needs faced by our community members facing loss and destruction primarily situated in the uptown and downtown areas of Kenosha, Wisconsin. In order to ensure the ability of Downtown Kenosha Inc. to continue to serve the community through both the immediate crisis and long-term recovery, a maximum of 10% of the funds received will be reserved for the administrative costs of the organization.
