Grants from the UCare Fund and UCare community benefit program provide operational support for three years
UCare, Minnesota’s fourth-largest health plan, is the new sponsor of what will be known as the UCare Skyway Senior Center in downtown Minneapolis. Grants from the UCare Fund and UCare’s community benefit program are providing operational support for three years to the popular downtown destination for people age 50 and older.
The center’s previous sponsor, Medica, provided financial support for the center for part of 2010. In addition to operational funds from UCare, funding comes from a variety of sources such as individual donors, corporations, neighborhood associations, foundations, and the nonprofit Friends of the Skyway Senior Center.
