Reigning NBA Champions the Milwaukee Bucks and Brookfield-based Fiserv, a global provider of payments and financial services technology and the naming rights partner for Fiserv Forum, home of the Bucks, announced the donation as part of their commitment to the local community.
"Sports have a way of bringing people together — we saw it this summer as the people of Milwaukee roared the Bucks to victory in the NBA Finals and celebrated that historic achievement," said Peter Feigin, President of the Milwaukee Bucks and Fiserv Forum. "Bringing a Dream Court to Sherman Park allows us to connect with the youngest members of our community and make a difference in their lives in a tangible way."
The Sherman Park Dream Court is high school regulation size, 50-by-84 feet, with two new basketball goals. It features a high-performance PowerGame™ surface from Sport Court® in gray and black, with the Dream Courts logo as its centerpiece and the Milwaukee Bucks and Fiserv brands featured on both halves of the court.
"It was a dream for me to play on a court when I was growing up in Brooklyn," said Basketball Hall of Famer and two-time Olympian, Nancy Lieberman, founder of Nancy Lieberman Charities. "Working with Fiserv, we will ensure more of America’s youth have a healthy space in their community, providing them the keys to success, confidence and self-esteem."
Fiserv has an existing connection to Sherman Park through its Back2Business program, a multi-pronged initiative to strengthen small, minority owned businesses through financial support, business expertise, leading technology solutions, strategic partnerships and community engagement. Fiserv has awarded nearly 150 grants to Milwaukee-area businesses through the program, including to Confectionately Yours, a retail bakery, and Lush Popcorn, a gourmet popcorn company, both based at Sherman Phoenix.
"The Bucks, Fiserv and Nancy Lieberman Charities share a commitment to community, economic empowerment, and diversity in communities across the country," said Frank Bisignano, President and Chief Executive Officer of Fiserv. "Fiserv has deep roots in Milwaukee, and we are committed to continuing to give back. With local excitement for basketball at an all-time high due to the Bucks’ fantastic championship victory, this is the perfect time to bring a Dream Court to the city."
"As a resident of Sherman Park for more than 40 years, I am passionate about this neighborhood and the people who live here. Providing a safe, state-of-the-art space where young people can play is one way to help lift up our community," said Felesia A. Martin of the Milwaukee County Board of Supervisors. "I’m grateful to our partners Milwaukee County Parks, the Mary Ryan Boys & Girls Club of Greater Milwaukee, the Sherman Park Community Association, and the Milwaukee County Sherriff’s Office, as well as the Bucks, Fiserv and Nancy Lieberman Charities for helping turn this dream into reality."
"The installation of a best-in-class basketball court in Sherman Park is truly a gift for our members," said Kathy Thornton-Bias, President and CEO of Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Milwaukee. "Having access to this court, just steps from our Mary Ryan Club, will motivate and inspire our kids to work hard, play hard and dream big."
Since the inception of the Dream Courts program in 2010, more than 100 courts have been installed across the United States to make basketball more accessible to children and provide an environment for them to play. Over three million youth play on Dream Courts in the U.S., with each court serving approximately 120 youth per day and helping to improve the lives of over 3.6 million children a year.

As investors look toward the end of the year, some are looking to realize losses on laggards to help offset the tax hit on the winners. As of the latest negotiations, it appears that an increase in capital-gains tax that some had wanted to be retroactive to 2021, isn’t in the cards, according to Ben Koltun, director of policy research at Beacon Policy Advisors. Whether the legislation brings increased bills or not, tax-savvy market participants are already maneuvering to mitigate the hit from levies already in place, as they frequently do near year-end.

CHAMPAIGN, Ill. (AP) The NCAA has suspended Illinois center Kofi Cockburn for the first three games of the season because he sold apparel and memorabilia before new regulations that allow athletes to participate in money-making ventures went into effect. The 7-foot center will miss the 11th-ranked Illini's first two home games, Nov. 9 against Jackson State and Nov. 12 against Arkansas State, as well as a Nov. 15 game against Marquette in the Gavitt Tipoff Games. The suspension is required as part of the reinstatement process that was triggered because Cockburn sold institutionally issued apparel and memorabilia in June, the university said.
