FFW Affiliate Certification Program
In July 2023, Family Friendly Workplaces (FFW) entered into an affiliation agreement with the Jackson County Child Care Network (JCCCN), a 501(c)3 nonprofit based in Black River Falls, Wisconsin. This affiliation program makes FFW's employer certification program available to employers located in Jackson County, Wisconsin.
Under the affiliation program, as under FFW's standard program, employers are required to make an annual conduit contribution at the minimum rate of $10 per full-time equivalent employee. However, under the affiliation program, that contribution is automatically directed to the Jackson County Child Care Network in support of their work focused on improving child care availability and quality in Jackson County.
To learn about the conduit contribution under the FFW's standard program, visit the Certifying Employers page.
Affiliation Eligibility Criteria
If you would like to become a Certified Family Friendly Workplace and your business is headquartered in Jackson County, Wisconsin, you must apply under the affiliation program, and your annual conduit contribution will be directed to the JCCCN.
If you would like to become a Certified Family Friendly Workplace and your business is not headquartered in Jackson County, Wisconsin, you must apply through the standard FFW program. In this scenario, you can still support JCCCN by choosing to direct your annual conduit contribution to them.
FFW uses the same application and matrix in both their standard program and the affiliation. To review the application and matrix, visit the Certifying Employers page.
