The power of conversation BY LAUREN ANDERSON, staff writer

M

ore than 200 members of the business and nonprofit communities gathered at the Hilton Milwaukee City Center hotel on a recent morning

to discuss some of the region’s most pressing issues over breakfast. Topics such as racism, educational disparities, homelessness and criminal justice reform were all up for conversation. The community stakeholders in that room were among an estimated 10,000 individuals to engage in an intentional conversation over a meal on Oct. 10 as part of the Greater Milwaukee Foundation’s On the Table event. The second-year initiative is centered on the simple premise that good things happen when diverse groups of people gather for meaningful discussion about improving the community. GMF leaders acknowledge that the idea of sharing a meal and conversation isn’t particularly novel. But, they contend, in a time when dialogue is increasingly exchanged through screens and discussions often take place within echo chambers, gathering people together for a face-to-face discussion is needed more than ever. face-to-face discussions in about 200 locations throughout “It’s powerful in its simplicity,” said Marcus White, vice

is about an even different kind of giving. It’s about sharing our hospitality and our spirit of invitation. It’s not unique, but we do think it’s a special and a rare opportunity to build the kind of community we all want.” The GMF rolled out new resources for this year’s On the Table, responding to feedback from the inaugural event, including Spanish language resources and On the Table lesson plans to encourage more participation among classrooms. Also this year, participants can apply for small amounts of funding to help bring their ideas to fruition. GMF expects to award between 20 and 40 “Ideas to Action” grants, which range in size from $500 to $2,500. Beginning Oct. 10, anyone who participated in discussions (one individual per table, or a group or organization) could apply for the funding to take action on the ideas developed during their conversations. Gabriel Yeager, 22, didn’t attend the inaugural event, but this year he volunteered as a facilitator of a table at NEWaukee’s “mega-table” community dinner, held in the rotunda of City Hall.

Baird Gives Back Week continues to grow Panella and Peterson co-chair the Baird Gives Back Associate Resource Group which helps plan the annual Baird Gives Back Week. Last year in Milwaukee, Baird associates volunteered for more than 30 organizations, including AIDS Resource Center of Wisconsin, Alliance School of Milwaukee, Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Milwaukee, Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin, East Town Association, Feeding America Eastern Wisconsin, Fondy Food Center, HEAR Wisconsin, Hunger Task Force, Guest House of Milwaukee, Special Olympics Wisconsin and the Waukesha Women’s Center, among others. “The organizations we work with are selected in many different ways,” Peterson said. “We work with our associates to determine which organizations they are passionate about and then we take a look at each of the organizations to see if our missions align and if they have a need for our employees.” New to the organization lineup in 2018 were Milwaukee Riverkeeper, where Baird employees were able to assist in the organization’s annual river cleanup preparation; Revitalize Milwaukee, where Baird helped inventory building materials; and the Wisconsin Veterans Network, where Baird assisted with a clerical scanning project.

n 2018, more than 1,600 Robert W. Baird & Co. Inc. associates from 89 locations gave back to their communities by volunteering across the United States, Asia and Europe.

The employees logged more than 7,000 volunteer hours for nearly 150 nonprofit organizations during the company’s annual Baird Gives Back Week. The event was launched in 2009 as a formalized way for associates to connect with their communities. “The firm has always had a strong history of giving back, but this effort, launched initially in Milwaukee, was a way to formalize those efforts, as well as provide opportunities for networking and connections associates may not have had in the past,” said Erik Peterson, client and tax reporting manager.

“We make it easy for our associates to get involved with organizations they haven’t worked with in the past,” Panella said. “There are organizations on our list that prior to Baird Gives Back Week, our associates may have never heard of before.” Panella herself got involved with HEAR Wisconsin initially as part of the event. She now sits on the board of directors for the organization. Volunteers that sign up during the week are Baird employees at all levels, Peterson said. Steve Booth, chief executive officer, has helped out at various organizations every year, and in 2018 participated in the cleanup of the Urban Ecology Center. “The mission of Baird Gives Back Week is supported at all levels of the organization,” Peterson said. “Volunteers include everyone from our CEO, to a cross section of senior leaders in the organization, to our interns in the office.”

The effort was expanded firmwide in 2011.

Baird allows its associates two full paid days off to volunteer each year, Panella added.

Each year, during the second or third week in May, Baird locations around the world participate in the annual event throughout their communities.

“The hope is that our employees use those days to get out into the community, find an organization they are passionate about and continue that work throughout the year,” he said. •

“It’s a week where we really celebrate the giving that we do all year long,” said Samantha Panella, client specialist.

Bradley Center lives on through Habitat’s deconstruction BY MAREDITHE MEYER, staff writer

T

he $90 million structure that housed Milwaukee’s premier sports and entertainment offerings for the past 30 years will be razed by summer 2019, but not everything inside the building will cease to exist.

The project was part of a larger philanthropic effort announced in June by the Milwaukee Bucks, which owns the Bradley Center’s four-acre site and is responsible for its demolition. Rather than disposing of the center’s leftover fixtures and amenities that were not sold to direct buyers, the Bucks donated items such as doors, countertops and electrical equipment to Habitat, Milwaukee Public Schools and the Milwaukee Electrical Joint Apprenticeship Training Committee. The total value of the donated items was estimated to be well into the seven figures, Bucks representatives said. During its largest deconstruction project to date, Habitat’s deconstruction services team recovered various fixtures from the Bradley Center’s luxury suites, locker rooms and concourse areas for resale. The Bucks’ donation directly supported the nonprofit’s mission to build affordable housing, said Brian Sonderman, executive director of Milwaukee Habitat for Humanity. “As the Bucks move into a new home, and through their generosity that allows us to sell these items, we’ll be able to provide Milwaukee families with a place to call home for years to come, as well,” he said. Proceeds from Habitat ReStores, which resell donated new and used furniture, appliances, building materials and other home goods, help cover the cost of supplies and equipment needed for the organization’s homebuilding initiatives. Last year, Milwaukee’s three ReStores sold more than $2 million worth of donated product – that’s 6 million pounds of reusable materials that did not end up in a landfill, according to Habitat.

Milwaukee Habitat for Humanity in September completed an eight-day deconstruction project at the BMO Harris Bradley Center, salvaging approximately 60,000 pounds and $50,000 worth of reusable materials to be resold at the organization’s three Habitat ReStore locations in Walker’s Point, Greenfield and Wauwatosa.

needed extra hands and there was excitement around the highprofile project, Weiler said. “Through their generous volunteerism, we were able to tackle the biggest project we could ever imagine,” Weiler said. “It seems like we have a very high rate of volunteerism in our region and this is a great example of it – our team from internal, but also external joining together to do a common good.” Habitat’s deconstruction team completes commercial and residential demolition projects on a weekly basis to salvage reusable material, including cabinetry, lighting and plumbing fixtures, flooring and HVAC, for resale. The group, for a $250 fee, performs demolitions on residential kitchens that are about to be remodeled.

Volunteers from Milwaukee Tool and Milwaukee Habitat for Humanity’s deconstruction team take down fixtures from the Bradley Center’s club level.

Last year, Habitat recovered more than $600,000 worth of resale product.

More than 100 volunteers worked alongside Habitat’s deconstruction crew during the Bradley Center project, logging a collective total of 1,000 volunteer hours over the eight days, said Jake Weiler, Habitat’s deconstruction services manager.

Among the salvaged items from the Bradley Center were cabinetry, which was re-priced at $150 per cabinet; luxury box seating re-priced at $30 per seat; and carpet squares re-priced at $2 each. In addition, Bucks lockers sold for $120 each, with Milwaukee Admirals lockers selling for $60 each.

That number included groups from Milwaukee Tool, Fiserv Inc. and We Energies. Corporate groups typically approach Habitat, requesting to assist with its widely known homebuilding projects, but the expansive Bradley Center deconstruction

“A lot of this stuff does not belong in a landfill,” Weiler said. “It has a second life to it, and because of the deconstruction team, the volunteers and ReStore, the community has access to it and someone else is going to have a great product for years to come.” •

Promoting a vibrant Milwaukee putting on Milwaukee is positive, and we have the talent to make that happen. We can come up with messaging and campaigns that make a difference in the marketplace.” Over the summer, Cramer-Krasselt donated its services to Milwaukee Public Library to support the Super Summer Reading Squad initiative. The firm provided the design of all campaign elements, media strategy and buying, and media relations to support the campaign. “Throughout the years, C-K’s dedicated and extremely talented team has helped support the Milwaukee Public Library’s mission of helping people read, learn and connect,” said Eileen Force Cahill, Milwaukee Public Library’s community relations and engagement director. “Our Super Summer Reading Squad is one of our longest-running programs, and they do a fantastic job of making it come to life each year.” The pro bono projects tend to be some of the most engaging for Cramer-Krasselt’s team members. The firm often takes on pro bono clients that connect with employees’ personal interests and passions, Brown said.

The Cramer-Krasselt Co., a Chicago-based marketing agency with an office in Milwaukee’s Historic Third Ward, provides pro bono services to various organizations that might otherwise lack resources to deploy robust media campaigns, including the Milwaukee Police Department, Penfield Children’s Center, Diverse & Resilient and Sojourner Family Peace Center. With the firm’s Milwaukee roots tracing back to its founding in 1898, Cramer-Krasselt is invested in strengthening Milwaukee’s nonprofit scene, said Betsy Brown, executive vice president and general manager. “We want to make sure we’re creating a desirable environment to live,” Brown said. “We feel it’s important the face we’re

“Typically, it is a challenge,” Brown said. “In the case of the Milwaukee Public Library, we have to overcome the perception that the library is only for books; to make sure it’s a lively gathering spot … These challenges, you typically can’t solve it with traditional media. In all likelihood, it will involve grassroots efforts.” C-K worked on a recent campaign with Diverse & Resilient, a Milwaukee nonprofit organization focused on addressing and overcoming health disparities experienced by the LGBTQ community. The firm spearheaded a campaign aimed at reducing teen pregnancy in a few specific zip codes. C-K ended up creating a campaign that distributed condoms and used social marketing, community organizing and education to make condoms more available, accessible and acceptable for young people. “The bigger the challenge, the more exciting it is to take on,” Brown said. From tackling tough issues to shedding light on the positive work of small organizations, Brown said her firm plays a small part in the positive momentum that is building in the city. “We want to make Milwaukee a vibrant community,” she said. “It gives us a great sense of gratification to give back. The way Milwaukee has advanced in the last 25 years here in terms of the downtown area, the lakefront and social causes, it’s a true honor if we can be part of that and help. We love Milwaukee and we want to see it continue to flourish.” •

Earth Day cleanup a way for Godfrey & Kahn to give back BY ALYSHA SCHERTZ, for BizTimes

T

hanks to the help of attorneys and staff at Milwaukee-based Godfrey & Kahn, the Urban Ecology Center in MIlwaukee has received hours of much-needed and sometimes necessary volunteer work. For the past 10 years, Godfrey & Kahn attorneys and staff have assisted with several projects at the Urban Ecology Center as part of its annual Earth Day cleanup event. “We’ve had a great, long-term relationship with the Urban Ecology Center,” said John Clancy, shareholder. “Over the years, we’ve done a variety of different projects at the center and its outer locations. It’s a great way for our employees to get involved with environmentally-friendly efforts and learn about the center.” Clancy, shareholder and leader of Godfrey & Kahn’s Environmental Strategies and Energy Strategies practice groups, has been on the board of the Urban Ecology Center since 2000. He served as president for three of those years, and was instrumental in starting GK’s involvement with the UEC. “Each year on Earth Day, we provide assistance with whatever projects the Urban Ecology Center needs help with,” Clancy said. On average, 35 to 45 members of Godfrey & Kahn’s staff volunteer each year at the Urban Ecology Center. In addition to volunteering time and labor, the firm also donates the cost of supplies and equipment for the projects. In the past, the firm has planted trees for the Rotary Centennial Arboretum, spread wood chips in the playground area, assisted with the removal of non-native plant species, and planted trees, plants and shrubs native to the region for several different areas at the Urban Ecology Center, along the Milwaukee River, and its surrounding trails. In addition, GK supports the UEC’s primary mission of environmental education. Clancy, as well as other attorneys, regularly speak at UEC events and activities. “It’s an easy mission to support,” Clancy said. “Our employees can really get behind the work we are doing because they can physically see us making the communities and the spaces a little bit better. It’s a great feeling.” Planning for Earth Day 2019 is underway, and Clancy suspects the work the firm has been doing to remove non-native and invasive plant species throughout the Urban Ecology Center property will continue. “There’s plenty for us to do, and we’re excited to continue our work,” Clancy added. According to Clancy, employees at all levels of the company have participated in the annual event, including shareholders

and the chief financial officer, as well as a number of first-year associates and attorneys and support staff. “It’s a great opportunity to interact more with colleagues we don’t get to work with often,” Clancy said. “The networking opportunities for us, and the ability to be outdoors, working with our hands to do something great for our community, are just added benefits to the partnership.” The work the firm has done at the Urban Ecology Center has spilled over into the company, as well. GK formed a Green Committee which is focused on environmental sustainability practices, including reduced printing, recycling initiatives and green building practices.

Each year, employees at Milwaukee-based Godfrey & Kahn help the Urban Ecology Center with a variety of cleanup projects.

“Our goal is to just get people to think about smarter, greener choices,” Clancy said. “A lot of our decisions blend into what we’re doing, or have been doing for the last 10 years. As we build new buildings or renovate our office spaces, we’ve made more conscious decisions around energy efficiency, smarter, greener lighting and equipment choices. It’s about really practicing what we preach” •

Hometown Heroes launches Camp Reunite for children with incarcerated mothers president of Kapco; Andrew Gappa, director of Camp Hometown Heroes; and Neil Willenson, vice president of community relations at Kapco. “For many of the children, Camp Reunite was the first place they could speak openly about having an incarcerated mother, as many children experience stigma and shame regarding their parent’s incarceration,” Willenson said. “Camp Reunite cannot change the fact that these children have an incarcerated parent, but we can instill resiliency, coping and conflict resolution skills that can positively affect their lives for decades to come.” Willenson had a personal connection to the cause that formed the initial idea for Camp Reunite. “In the past, Neil has had foster children with an incarcerated parent,” Kenzie said. “On his visitations he noticed it wasn’t a very child-friendly visitation. Most of the families would travel a long distance, but there wasn’t really any interaction or sense of community.” At Camp Reunite, children not only had an opportunity to interact and talk with each other, but they also spent two halfday visits at Taycheedah visiting their mothers.

Camp Reunite brings children together with incarcerated mothers.

pproximately 88,000 children in Wisconsin have at least one incarcerated parent. Many of those children never get to visit their parents.

Hometown Heroes Inc., a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization started by leaders at Grafton-based Kapco Metal Stamping, has partnered with the Wisconsin Department of Corrections to host Camp Reunite, a weeklong summer camp for children of women incarcerated at Taycheedah Correctional Institution in Fond Du Lac. Similar to its flagship program Camp Hometown Heroes, which is tailored to children who have had a parent die in the military, Camp Reunite incorporates a trauma-informed approach.

Most of the children at Camp Reunite previously had very limited access to their mothers. For some, the camp was the first time they were able to visit, Kenzie said. Camp leaders brought in correctional officers from Taycheedah to talk with the kids and tell them exactly what to expect. “We really wanted to help open the doors to a healthy communication and support these kids in continuing the mother-child bond,” Kenzie said. “Taycheedah was a great partner in this initiative.”

In June 2018, Camp Reunite hosted 38 kids from around the state. In addition to traditional summer camp activities like swimming, dance, arts and crafts, archery, drama, canoeing and fishing, the children are given many opportunities to talk and bond with other children with incarcerated parents.

Camp organizers also worked with Taycheedah to organize longer, more child-friendly visitations.

“In the instance of Camp Hometown Heroes, there’s already a culture of community for that population,” said Kenzie Kacmarcik, co-founder of Camp Reunite. “For this community, it can be very stigmatizing, even isolating.”

Camp Reunite is part of Hometown Heroes’ overall initiative of reaching more children in trauma situations, Kacmarcik said. The organization intentionally kept the pilot year of Camp Reunite small, but hopes to grow to include more children next year, and also plans to expand programming to include children with incarcerated fathers. •

“From the moment an inmate steps into one of our facilities, our focus is on providing pathways that enable them to succeed in the community,” said DOC Secretary Cathy Jess. “As many incarcerated women have children, we recognize that maintaining a bond between mother and child is critical for the inmate’s eventual release to the community. This camp is an innovative approach which benefits both mother and child, with the hope that both will lead crime-free lives in the community.”

New Resources Consulting committed to Best Buddies’ mission BY ALYSHA SCHERTZ, for BizTimes

M

ilwaukee-based New Resources Consulting LLC has a long history of giving back to the community, and the company’s commitment to Best Buddies International and Best Buddies Wisconsin is no different. Best Buddies International is an organization dedicated to ending the social, physical and economic isolation of individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Anthony Kennedy Shriver founded the organization in 1989. He currently serves as chairman and chief executive officer. New Resources Consulting has been involved with Best Buddies for nearly two decades, said Don Weber, vice president of client relations at New Resources Companies Inc. “It feels like yesterday,” Weber said. The company started its involvement by helping individuals raise money to participate in Best Buddies’ national bike ride. Today, New Resources hosts an annual golf outing, a walk, offers corporate sponsorships for riders, and is also a sponsor for the organization’s annual Leadership Breakfast. “Our involvement continues to grow,” Weber said. “We now have several people in the company even participating in the rides.” Each year, supporters of Best Buddies organize several long distance bike rides throughout the country. New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady helps lead a Best Buddies Challenge ride from Boston to Hyannis Port, Massachusetts, and journalist Maria Shriver leads one in California. Another ride, organized by Tour de France champion Chris Froome, takes place in Miami. Weber serves as chair on the advisory board for Best Buddies Wisconsin, and was invited to serve on the organization’s national board, as well. In 2017, Weber was awarded the Van Handel Family Spirit of Inclusion-Community Leader Award from Best Buddies Wisconsin. In 2010, New Resources Consulting designated Best Buddies Wisconsin the beneficiary of its annual charity golf outing. Over the past eight years, the golf outing has raised more than $30,000 for Best Buddies Wisconsin. Including the golf outing, the company’s annual Best Buddies walk each spring and other events, New Resources has raised more than $100,000 for Best Buddies, Weber said. Involvement in Best Buddies events is widespread across New Resources Consulting. Several leaders in the company have participated in the Best Buddies Challenge rides, and even more have participated in the walk and other events. “New Resources has an enhanced sense of community,” said

Mark Grosskopf, president and chief executive officer. “Our team members actively invest their time, knowledge and resources to engage with organizations that focus on community improvement. We are proud to be a continued partner with Best Buddies.” The company is also a premier sponsor for Best Buddies’ annual leadership breakfast. In 2017, the breakfast raised more than $85,000 for the organization. “We invite other leaders in the community to that event each year,” Weber said. “And every year, we see more and more of our customers and those we have close relationships with get involved.”

In eight years, the New Resources Consulting golf outing has raised more than $30,000 for Best Buddies Wisconsin.

There’s a lot of personal connection with the mission of the organization, Weber said. “People just love what the organization is about; they just love the mission,” he said. At the middle school, high school and even college level, Best Buddies operates as a student-run friendship club which encourages inclusion and a culture of acceptance and support. “It’s just been incredible seeing how these programs operate in our schools,” Weber said. For Weber, the organization and its mission hit close to home. “It’s close to me. My nephew has Down syndrome, and my hope is by the time he’s in middle school, in high school that an organization like this isn’t a necessity anymore. We’re getting there.” •

Local businesses show support for family of slain MPD officer The check was hand delivered through the Milwaukee Police Department. O’Brien’s Pub has provided support to the Milwaukee Police Department in the past through donations to its “National Night Out” campaign, Klamann added. Other area businesses also raised funds for Michalski. Sweeney’s Gym on Milwaukee’s south side hosted free yoga classes in exchange for donations made in honor and remembrance of Michalski. Sobelman’s Pub & Grill in Milwaukee’s Menomonee Valley also donated $1 from every burger sold on Saturday, August 4, and The Packing House restaurant on Milwaukee’s south side donated $1 from every fish fry sold on Friday, Aug. 2, and raised $3,500 for the Michalski family. Jennifer Clark, owner of Jen’s Sweet Treats in Cudahy, has never met Susan Michalski or her family, but she knows what it feels like to lose a spouse, and people she works with knew the family well. Clark donated 100 percent of bakery sales on Wednesday, Aug. 1 to the Michalski family, and also collected donations from the community Aug. 1 through Aug. 5. In total, Jen’s Sweet Treats raised approximately $11,400 for the Michalski family.

ichael Michalski, a 17-year veteran of the Milwaukee Police Department, was gunned down in the line of duty on July 25. Michalski, who was 52, is survived by his wife, Susan, and his sons, John, Joshua and Andrew. In the wake of Michalski’s death, several southeastern Wisconsin businesses planned and organized community fundraisers in his honor. “We felt doing something directly for the family was important,” said Joel Klamann, owner of O’Brien’s Pub in Milwaukee. When the tragedy occurred, Klamann approached Milwaukeebased Lakefront Brewery to create a special “Brew for the Blue” tap handle. “Lakefront donated a keg of Riverwest Stein for the event, and so did we,” Klamann said.

“It definitely hit close to home,” Clark said. “But even without the personal connection I would have done it because it’s the right thing to do. Sometimes people just need to step up and do the right thing.” When Clark established Jen’s Sweet Treats, she did so with the intention of making a difference in the community. Over the past three years, the company has raised more than $25,000 for the veterans Honor Flight. The company has also assisted with fundraisers for cancer awareness, food pantries, local high schools and hurricane relief efforts. “It’s what we do,” she said. “One cupcake at a time.” Michalski was laid to rest on Wednesday, Aug. 1, at Memorial Park in Brookfield after a memorial service at Oak Creek Assembly of God Church. Law enforcement officers from all over the country traveled to southeastern Wisconsin for the service, and thousands of people gathered along the processional to pay their respects to the fallen officer. Jonathan Copeland Jr. is charged in connection with his death.

All the money raised from those two kegs, plus a dollar from every burger sold at O’Brien’s during the month of August, was donated directly to Michalski’s family.

A memorial fund was also established at Tri City National Bank, and donations are being accepted online at gofundme. com/9yuzd-michael-michalski.

“We wrote a check to Officer Michalski’s wife for $1,342,” Klamann said.

The official GoFundMe page has raised nearly $48,000 in donations. •

Equipping veterans for success BY LAUREN ANDERSON, staff writer

O

ne of U.S. Bank’s longstanding commitments has been to hire and support veterans. On Independence Day, a group of U.S. Bank employees put that commitment into action.

Employees helped renovate, beautify and modernize a library on the Milwaukee VA Medical Center campus that was built in the 1890s, converting it into a computer lab and recreation space for veterans. About 50 volunteers helped install new computers, desks, chairs and a projector screen, and cleaned and painted the computer lab. The project was backed by a $20,000 gift from U.S. Bank and culminated in the donation of 100 laptops to veterans in need. The project was part of an ongoing partnership with Tech For Troops, a nonprofit organization that provides veterans with skills, computers and IT workforce training. Tech For Troops collected and refurbished the laptops to ready them for the veterans. JeNyce Boolton, community relations manager for U.S. Bank, said the project aligns with the company’s Community Possible corporate giving and engagement platform. “Our corporate giving platform is focused around economic development, stable jobs, homes and vibrant communities,” Boolton said. “Because Tech for Troops supports veterans, it fits really nicely into our work by providing veterans with the resources they need to get back into the workforce or, if they’re in the workforce, to continue their path to growth and development.” In 2017, U.S. Bank contributed more than $58.4 million to nonprofit organizations through Community Possible.

“Several of the veterans were on the job hunt,” he said. “Now they don’t have to leave the comfort of their home; they can apply for jobs online. Another gentleman was just starting an engineering degree at (Milwaukee School of Engineering) and this came just in time before the school year so he can do all the work he needs to do.” More than a one-time commitment, U.S. Bank will continue to support the effort by providing financial literacy classes to veterans at the VA, along with more laptop giveaways. “Whenever we enter into a partnership with an organization, we want it to be very deep one,” Boolton said. “We wouldn’t provide financial support once a year; we want to provide that consistent support and engagement. With the partnership with the VA, there will be numerous touchpoints for bankers to get involved to solidify our commitment to our veterans.”

MILWAUKEE VA MEDICAL CENTER

Jim Santilli, president of U.S. Bank’s local employee resource group for veterans, said the effort is aimed at setting up veterans for success.

Boolton said it’s particularly rewarding to give back to a group that has given so much to the country. “When we volunteer, it’s always gratifying,” she said. “But there is something really special about giving back to veterans who sacrificed so much for our country to protect our values and ideals.” •

Golfing for childhood cancer research Prior to launching the golf outing, the company had supported the MACC Fund with annual $1,000 gifts as part of an employee recognition program. When Steiner joined the organization’s board about 15 years ago, the company decided to increase its commitment to the cause. The fundraiser has grown significantly since its inaugural year, which brought in $59,950. This year’s event, held at the West Bend Country Club and at the Prairie Center at West Bend’s corporate headquarters, raised more than $900,000. The company covers all event expenses, meaning all proceeds benefit the MACC Fund. “I’m proud to say that’s a commitment my company has made; we’ll take care of expenses,” Steiner said. “We want you to know every dollar goes to the MACC Fund.” The MACC Fund was established in 1976 by retiring Milwaukee Bucks player-turned-announcer Jon McGlocklin and play-byplay announcer Eddie Doucette, whose two-year-old son Brett had been diagnosed with cancer. The MACC Fund has raised a total of $63 million over the years for childhood cancer and blood disorder research. Ryan Dove hadn’t heard about the organization prior to Lily’s diagnosis.

fter years of supporting the Midwest Athletes Against Childhood Cancer Fund, the cause became much more personal to West Bend Mutual Insurance Co.

Since 2006, West Bend Mutual Insurance has hosted a biennial golf outing, raising hundreds of thousands of dollars for the MACC Fund, an organization that supports childhood cancer and blood disorder research. In 2013, the company’s director of information security, Ryan Dove, and his wife, Erin, learned that their 8-year-old daughter Lily had lymphoblastic leukemia. Two years later, Lily’s twin, Bailey, received the same diagnosis at 10 years old. Now 13 years old, both have completed treatment and are doing well. “That why we do it,” said Kevin Steiner, president and chief executive officer of West Bend Mutual Insurance. “Not all stories have a positive ending. The cure rate has gone from 20 to 80 percent over the last 40 years. That’s tremendous advancement, but our work is not done.”

“It was a Friday that she was diagnosed,” he said. “On Monday, we were sitting in the cafeteria (of Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin) and we learned that the MACC Fund had given a $10 million research grant to Children’s Hospital … We gained awareness of the MACC Fund the hard way. We want to raise the awareness that it could be anyone’s child.” Ryan and Erin Dove have become advocates for the cause ever since. The couple shares their story often, and Ryan serves on the MACC Fund’s Emerging Leaders Board. “For me, it’s not work; it’s a strong passion for me,” Ryan said. That passion has spread throughout West Bend Mutual. “We have a very special culture,” Steiner said. “Part of that is community support and philanthropy. When you find a cause that everyone can rally around and that you can see that it’s right here in our backyard, it becomes a great team relationship builder.” “We will keep working with the MACC Fund until there is a cure for childhood cancer,” he added. “We still have a lot of work to do and West Bend is proud to be a part of it.” •

The Bryon Riesch Paralysis Foundation’s (BRPF) goal is to find a cure for paralysis through funding the latest in medical research. This research not only benefits those suffering from spinal cord injuries but also stroke victims, people diagnosed with Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and other neurological disorders. Another objective is to help the millions of people that are currently suffering from paralysis. The BRPF works within the community providing charitable grants to help make life easier for people suffering from paralysis. Equally vital, the BRPF provides scholarships to individuals suffering from paralysis or families with a parent dealing with a neurological disorder.

The BRPF has multiple fundraising events every year. Our Annual Golf Outing, Dinner & Auction for Spinal Cord Injury Research is always held on the first Monday in June. Each fall, Carroll Unveristy hosts Bryon’s 5K Run/Walk/Roll to Cure Paralysis. Other events include the BRPF Team Challenge hosted by Elite Sports Club, the BRPF Bryder Cup Challenge, “This Is How We Roll” Fashion Show, Bowling for the BRPF and Kayak for a Cure. We always welcome new participants and sponsors. Get involved in one of our events to be inspired, have a great time and help put an end to paralysis.

The BRPF is currently looking for volunteers to help with all of our events including our annual golf outing, dinner and auction, BRPF Team Challenge, Fashion Show and the run/ walk/roll. Even more vital, we need help from individuals and companies to start new events and fundraising opportunities. This can include anything from a company sponsored event to collecting pledges while doing a marathon, bike ride or triathlon. We need all the help we can get.

The easiest way to give to the BRPF is to make a tax deductible monetary donation on our website at www.brpf.org, but it is not the only one. You could also attend or even consider being a sponsor of one of our events throughout the year. Equally important, remember to include us in your planned giving and don’t forget about matching gifts. Please contact us to discuss a giving opportunity that will fit your needs.

The Charles E. Kubly Foundation is a public foundation which funds grants for organizations providing mental health resources and services. Actively engaged in community mental health efforts, we collaborate with other organizations to raise awareness of depression and prevent suicide. This engagement and our relationships with community, medical and academic partners help us make effective funding decisions to fulfill our mission statement, serve as a resource for quality healthcare initiatives, and work with our community partners to ensure the latest advances in mental healthcare are available in Wisconsin.

We have a few volunteer needs throughout the year that include event and administrative support. We encourage those interested in our cause to review the Projects Funded page on our website. With over 270 projects funded since our inception in 2003, there are limitless opportunities to volunteer with an organization that aligns with your personal experience with depression, suicide prevention and other programs promoting awareness and education of mental health.

F UN D R AI SI NG/EV ENT S Beyond the Blues, our annual music and social event, draws nearly 500 people each year in support of the Foundation’s commitment to improve the lives of those affected by the devastating disease of depression. Beyond the Blues is held each September. For sponsorship opportunities, please contact the Foundation Business Manager directly at krick@cekf.org or 414-477-9959. The Foundation also hosts Charlie’s Night, an awareness event geared to young adults. This is an age group that may experience the onset of depression in themselves or others and therefore a critical population to reach.

Our breadth of services includes child advocacy, child and family counseling, foster care and adoption services and initiatives focused on family support and preservation through programs that reach our most vulnerable kids.

Children are the little sparks of light that brighten our lives, and Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin is committed to doing everything possible to keep them shining their brightest. While that means having a world-class hospital that treats cancer, heart disease and other serious conditions, it also includes finding kids loving homes, caring for their mental health and giving them a voice where they haven’t been heard. To fulfill that mission, we need you.

A college degree is the surest pathway out of poverty, yet only 12% of low-income students finish in six years compared to 58% of their upper-income peers. Our students are often the first in their families to go to college and need assistance navigating the often complex college systems. Last year, 94% of College Possible students earned admission to college. Our students graduate from college at 52%—close to the same rate as their upper-income peers. College Possible helps students change the trajectory of their lives, the lives of their families and our community.

Our signature fundraising event, the Dream Big Dinner, celebrates our college graduates along with donors, AmeriCorps “coaches” who work with our students and community partners.

If you have the time, we have the volunteer opportunity! Our friendly staff work with all volunteers to help match your talents and interests with a variety of volunteer positions.

With your help, children like Molly (pictured above) are able to receive life-changing therapy services at Curative Care. Molly’s parents were told she would never walk, talk or develop normally. Today, she is age-appropriate in all areas of function.

From clerical tasks, to assistance with program activities, as well as sharing a hobby or musical talent – our volunteers support the Curative team, while creating a pleasant and enriching experience for the individuals who rely on our services.

Easterseals continually strives to develop innovative and creative programs to meet the unique challenges of individuals with disabilities and their families in the local communities we serve. As an organization, we continue to look for opportunities for strategic growth by expanding existing services or adding new service lines to meet community-identified gaps. Our long standing history in the community, ability to leverage resources and relationships with Easterseals headquarters, and experience providing services across the lifespan, demonstrate the capacity of Easterseals Southeast Wisconsin to provide both prevention and intervention services throughout Southeast Wisconsin.

We hold two annual fundraising events that offer opportunities for individuals and corporations to connect with the Easterseals mission: • Walk with Me - June 2019 – more than 600 walkers join us each year for a family-friendly evening at the Milwaukee County Zoo to raise funds and awareness for individuals with disabilities. Be a corporate sponsor, form a team, or walk as an individual. • Annual Gala - November 2019 - an inspiring and heartwarming event offering an evening of fine dining, entertainment and live and silent auctions benefiting individuals with disabilities that we serve in Southeast Wisconsin.

Save the date and join us to run, volunteer or raise pledges. More information will be available at www.adrenalineraces.org

Prevention: Delay youths’ use of alcohol or other drugs for as long as possible, knowing that early onset of use increases likelihood of addiction later in life. Intervention: Provide targeted services to people at risk of a substance use disorder to get them the help they need as early in their addiction or mental health crisis as possible. Support: Increase access to resources for those in early recovery to increase their chance for success and also offer education and support to their loved ones.

The 10 week curriculum, based on current research in the field of elementary education, social-emotional learning, and positive-youth development, focuses on life skills. To show girls that they have the power and potential to make a difference, each team creates and executes a local community service project. Running is used to inspire and motivate girls, encourage lifelong health and fitness, and build confidence through accomplishment. At each season’s conclusion, the girls and their running buddies complete a 5K event which gives them a tangible sense of achievement as well as a framework for setting and achieving life goals.

Join us for a fun evening at our Sneaker Soiree which will be held on Feb. 22, 2019. We welcome you help be a part of the GOTR story here in Southeastern Wisconsin as we empower our young girls to be strong women. We also host two celebratory 5K events each year. The 5K’s are open to all and you will not be disappointed, smiles all around! Our Fall 5K is Sunday, November 18 at Miller Park and our Spring 5K is in May.

Meanwhile, in many fields our current workforce is aging, and tomorrow’s workforce is not finding their way to technical careers.

GPS introduces students to technical careers through powerful, credentialed, workbased learning solutions by acting as the intermediary between education, business, and community entities all across the state of Wisconsin.

By 2025, our goal is to have 10,000 students nationwide journey through a GPS work-based learning experience and establish a technical career that shows them their purpose, and provides a pathway to a more meaningful life.

HAWS is Building a No-Kill Community! The Humane Animal Welfare Society operates an innovative, solution-oriented animal shelter which serves as the primary pet and education resource center in Waukesha County, and the State of Wisconsin. HAWS’ spay-neuter/veterinary clinic actively combats pet overpopulation in order to end needless euthanasia, while training programs as well as personalized consultations ensure pets stay in their forever homes once adopted. Education initiatives teach kindness, compassion and empathy towards all living things.

HAWS is supported through events such as the annual Romp ‘N Rally pet festival, HAWS’ Kitten Shower, Pet Fair, fall fundraising gala, and many Friends of HAWS activities. Workplace giving programs direct monthly payroll donations to HAWS; businesses, organizations, fairs and festivals sponsor Mobile Adoption visits.

The public can lend a hand in support of the HAWS cause within the shelter walls through dog-walking and training, cat and small animal care, kennel support, lobby greeting and office help. Outside of HAWS, special events and Mobile Adoption Center visits always need extra people to assist with both animal handling and telling HAWS’ story!

HAWS requests funds through the annual holiday appeal and summer membership drive. Memorials and honorarium donations celebrate a loved one while supporting HAWS’ work. Birthday, anniversary and wedding fundraisers can be directed to HAWS. Monthly payroll donations can be set up through workplace giving programs. Sponsorships are available for adoptable pets and shelter wards, as well as for life-saving programs. Estates and bequests ensure HAWS’ financial future.

Why the MPS Foundation? • Opportunity to directly impact the lives of our city’s young people! • Provides a bridge between Milwaukee Public Schools and the greater Milwaukee Community! • Allows the flexibility to address student needs now!

Our goal is to restore connections for children, youth, adults and families who have experienced childhood, generational and/or historical trauma. Through trauma informed care (TIC), we can help identify the effects of trauma and develop interventions that lead to health, healing and the ability to thrive. In addition to our services, including family reunification, outpatient mental health, a K4-8th grade public charter school, and foster care and adoption, we are at the forefront of the TIC movement. Our goal is to continue to facilitate equity and learning among TIC experts like those who attended our recent Healing Trauma Conference.

Corporations can sponsor one of our annual foster parent recognition events, host a Holiday Toy Drive, or join us in our partnership with SWIM (Scaling Wellness in Milwaukee). We also accept corporate donations to our Youth Transitioning to Adulthood program, which provides resources, mentoring, and education for youth who have aged out foster care and those at risk for aging out (preparedness programs begin as early as age 14). Organizations may also contribute financial support, or mentoring programs to our award-winning K4-8 public charter school, Capitol West Academy.

St. Coletta of Wisconsin has expanded into the greater Brookfield area through a newly shaped Intergenerational Care Center (IGC). St. Coletta’s Intergenerational Care Center (IGC) is offering three different programs for all individuals over the age of 18 with developmental disabilities and the elderly. These programs are designed to offer unique services specific to the needs of the individual. Situated in Fairview South School’s North wing, St. Coletta’s IGC boasts over 10,000 square feet worth of classroom and sensory space complete with a student work center, allowing individuals to build upon their skills to enable them to seek employment opportunities in the community. As an intergenerational facility, the goal is to bring elderly, disabled, and children in day care settings into the community – together.

St. Coletta is expanding into the Brookfield area by establishing the staples of care, education, and employment that we currently offer in Jefferson, WI. As a result, the center has Golden Options adult day services, Excel services for the disabled, and Genesis Education and Employment training. We are excited about this collaboration with Elmbrook School District, as we are committed to cultivating both an internal and external sense of community. Connections with the communities we serve are equally as important as nurturing the internal connections between clients, staff, families, and benefactors. These relationships build a community spirit that is a unique part of our organization. With a rich 114 year history, St. Coletta continues to expand and touch lives through Compassion, Dignity, and Respect.

During the holiday season, our goals are to increase red kettle bell ringing locations and company match days to run a successful Red Kettle Campaign. Individuals, families, businesses, corporations, foundations, civic and affinity groups are welcome to join us in reaching the annual Red Kettle Christmas Campaign goal. In 2017, the campaign brought in $3.7 million. Eighty-seven cents of every dollar donated supports a program or service to help men, women and children year round living in Milwaukee County.

Individuals, corporations and foundations can become directly involved with a financial gift to one or more of The Salvation Army’s programs, such as the Feed the Kids Summer Lunch Program, the Back to School Backpack Program, the Chaplaincy Program, the Christmas Toy Shop or Christmas Family Feast. Our annual special events include the Swing for the Kettle Golf Outing, the OTHERS Luncheon, the Red Kettle Christmas Campaign, the Red Kettle on the Red Carpet Gala and Echelon’s Dinner in the Alley.

Increasing the public’s knowledge of history has profound societal, cultural, and economic benefits. As one of the largest, most active, and most diversified state historical societies in the nation, the Wisconsin Historical Society ensures citizens across Wisconsin and beyond can learn about their past through our resources and use that knowledge to transform their lives. To achieve these ambitious goals, we are working to create a new history museum that properly shares the stories of all our citizens, displays our world-renowned collections, and connects our state like nothing that exists today.

The Wisconsin Historical Society is both a state agency and a private membership organization serviced by the Wisconsin Historical Foundation. The Society maintains a robust, exciting annual calendar of events that are open to the public. Members and donors are the first to know about additional, behind-the-scenes opportunities and events. Throughout 2019, the Society is continuing a series of community events across the state to ask the public, including educators, families, and business leaders, for feedback about a new Wisconsin history museum.
