CharitableEvents2012 Making a Difference Ten years ago, we started this comprehensive Charitable Events Guide to showcase the phenomenal work that local nonprofits and businesses are providing to the metro Milwaukee area. Over the years, we've been delighted with the responses we've received from you, our valuable readers, who have supported these enjoyable and beneficial events for a decade. This year, we've added a new exciting feature. Throughout the Guide, you'll find full-page highlights of several important organizations that are making an everyday difference in our communities. Take a look at their mission statements, upcoming events and, most importantly, how you can make a difference by volunteering your time to assist others in need and by supporting the arts in our area. We've also added more options to our website, milwaukeemag.com. Now, you can not only continue to view monthly events throughout the year, but you can also submit your favorite charitable events to an online calendar. And you can upload photos from past events for all to see or check out photos from other organizations. Of course, the main feature is still the listings of upcoming balls, galas, luncheons, dinners, runs, rides, golf outings and more! For the new year, add an event or two (or three) to your calendar, and help strengthen our city and state through these positive organizations. Also, mark Nov. 15, 2012, on your calendar as the submission deadline for events in 2013. - Linda L.

The Community Involvement Program (CIP), for instance, encourages employee volunteerism. CIP was started more than 30 years ago at the company's headquarters and was expanded nationally in 2009. Last year, the program launched globally in communities where Johnson Controls has a presence, says Mary Dowell, Johnson Controls' director of global community relations. Another employee-driven program that Johnson Controls offers is Executive Involvement and Steering (EIS), which seeks to strategically match leaders' professional expertise and personal passions with area community and nonprofit organizations. Since its inception in 2008, EIS participation has increased by 321 percent, says Dowell. The EIS program is scheduled to launch globally in 2012. "There are over 1,700 employees participating in these two programs worldwide, with a total of 96,000 volunteer hours logged as of ," she notes. "In fact, within the first 30 days of the global launch of CIP, employees around the world logged a record 12,000 hours." Johnson Controls offers additional philanthropic support for the community through its Foundation, which provides grants to organizations in the areas of arts, education, health and social service, and the environment. The Foundation also finances the Education and Arts Matching Gift Program, where employee financial contributions are matched dollar for dollar, based on the program guidelines, says Dowell. 4 / Milwaukee Magazine / Charitable Events Guide 2012 Cedarburg's Catholic elementary school. 5 p.m. Costume attire.

National Ave. // Milwaukee, WI 53204 // 414-643-7677 // milwaukeeballet.org MISSION STATEMENT Milwaukee Ballet, now in its 42nd performing season, was founded in 1970 by local citizens with the desire of creating and sustaining a resident professional dance company in the city of Milwaukee. Since its inception, Milwaukee Ballet has brought superb presentations of the art form to more than 50,000 people a year. Artistic Director Michael Pink has thoughtfully fashioned an artistically and internationally diverse company of 23 elite athletes from six countries, as well as nine company dancers recruited from our own Nancy Einhorn Milwaukee Ballet II training program. These artists reside, work and create in this community and many make Milwaukee their home for years, contributing to and enhancing the artistic output of our city. The Company is as committed to access as artistry, and through community outreach programs, Milwaukee Ballet touches over 25,000 individuals, representing 92 schools and community groups through in-school immersion programs, performances and educational workshops. Milwaukee Ballet maintains the only accredited professional dance school in the Midwest and is one of only 13 professional studio schools accredited nationally. THE BOARD Keith Kolb Chair Robert W.

We have the tools with which to ask and answer questions: Why do caterpillars change into butterflies? Which is the heaviest planet in our galaxy? How could one asteroid wipe out all the dinosaurs? We believe that within every person is a burning desire to more fully understand the marvels, the oddities and the secrets of his or her world. We believe it is our job to stoke and feed that fire. For it inspires us to keep learning. To turn more stones. To look closer at life. To ask the never-ending question: What can we discover next?
