IndieGoGo Campaign and Benefactors

In April 2015, we were privileged to work with a great team of MU students who organized our first ever IndieGoGo campaign.  Through the generosity and support of 30 contributors, we raised over $5,000, which will be used to build HPNs for our next locale–Guatemala.  Click here for more on the campaign.

We would especially like to thank four donors who asked to “be recognized on the HPN website.”  We are happy to do so, with many thanks to:

Kevin Vincent
Robert Scheidt
Karen Jamiola, and
Ji Sunn Yoo.

If you’d like your name added to our website, just let us know!  We are always happy to expand the growing HPN network.


In May 2014, we were honored to accept a Eureka Award on behalf of the HPN Project from the Milwaukee Business Journal, which recognizes creativity, innovation, and progress in business, the arts, education, health care and other areas. The honor became even greater when we were introduced to the other award-winning endeavors. It was gratifying to be included among such outstanding initiatives.
