How to Select an IT Support Provider in SE Wisconsin The selection of an IT support provider in SE Wisconsin is a decision that should not be taken lightly. Some IT service providers will promise comprehensive support and deliver a handful of services. Others will guarantee a round-the-clock service, only to put your needs on the back burner. The key is to find a reliable provider with service dexterity and a willingness to assist when emergencies arise. Pinpointing such a provider is much easier said than done. No Two IT Support Providers are the Same Too many business owners and managers make the critical mistake of assuming each IT support provider is the same. IT companies might promise similar services, but in reality, the end result is almost always clearly different. Each provider has unique personnel, capabilities, services, prices, and quality. The key is to get a firm understanding of each provider’s merit by way of referrals, web reviews, and word-of-mouth evaluations. Speak with peers who have done business with prospective IT support providers and find out how those relationships worked out. Organizations that perform their due diligence will stand a much better chance of partnering with their “best fit” IT company. See Through the Hype Ensure you verify that providers are certified across several vendors and all the latest technologies. True IT gurus know the ins and outs of the cloud, network security, colocation, web hosting, etc. Furthermore, the IT support provider that you settle on should have personnel depth, for those instances when the most experienced staff members are unavailable.

Service Specifically Catered to Your Organization Each discussion you have with your IT partner should be centered around your business. The best IT partners focus on client needs and demands. Nothing should get in the way of providing custom tailored IT services that boost the clients’ efficiencies. Avoid accepting a one-size-fits-all IT service solution. Furthermore, you should never be content with constant tech upgrades. Avoid paying for those additions unless you are 100% sure they are the proper fit for your business operations and goals. Willingness to Put Promises in Writing Most IT providers will talk a big game, yet many will fail to follow through. This is precisely why it is prudent to obtain all service promises in writing. Each IT service should be clearly defined. The cost of these services should also be put in writing before a business relationship is established. Everything from service parameters to help desk assistance availability, promised response times, and the duration of service must be provided in writing. About Technology Resource Advisors, Inc. Technology Resource Advisors, Inc. serves as the IT department for several Milwaukee area organizations that have greater than 20 employees. We have developed a proven process that enables businesses to increase productivity, control costs, and reduce risk & exposure. IT Care, TRA’s support platform, is built on four components: Technology Consulting, Network Administration, Reactive Support, and Proactive Management.

Next generation of donors wants to give time, not just a check BY LAU R EN A N DER SON , sta ff w rite r

W

hen Chelsey Metcalf attended her first Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Milwaukee fundraising event, it didn’t take long before she was drawn in to the cause.

Metcalf, a 27-year-old litigation associate with Foley & Lardner LLP in Milwaukee, was invited by a colleague and long-term Boys & Girls Clubs board member to last year’s annual Celebrating GIRLS event, which showcases the talents and interests of the girls served by the clubs. “I was just totally blown away by what the Boys & Girls Club was helping these young women do,” Metcalf said. “I loved that event. I was walking around browsing and talking to these young women and you would not believe how well-prepared and excited they were.” While surveying the event, Metcalf saw an opportunity to help lead a mock trial event for the girls. She was eager to sign up, not only to help fund the opportunity, but also to volunteer to run it. “That was something I could connect with the girls on,” she said.

much disposable income. That’s the same with the baby boomers, but the difference is that, generally speaking, millennials are coming out with so much more debt than what my generation had.”

It turned out that Foley & Lardner was the host of that event, and Metcalf has helped spearhead the effort for two years. Now, she also serves on the organization’s young professional board and is an enthusiastic promoter of the Boys & Girls Clubs.

Post-college, expenses like mortgages or rent, life expenses and debt tend to take highest priority, but it doesn’t mean young people don’t desire to give, Tillisch said. In fact, she’s seen UPAF resonate more with older millennials as their income grows.

Metcalf’s story, some would say, encapsulates a larger trend when it comes to millennials and philanthropy. Up-and-coming donors aren’t looking to simply write a check; they want to get involved with the causes that matter to them.

Metcalf pushes back on assumptions that young people are only willing to volunteer and not give financially, however.

There are various theories to explain the generational change. Some contend it’s simply a matter of resources – many people who have graduated college within the past decade are saddled with debt and have less room in their budgets for charitable giving. Young people may not be able to give financially, but they can give their time. “Part of it is just about maturation,” said Deanna Tillisch, president and chief executive officer of the United Performing Arts Fund. “When you’re in your 20s and early 30s, you just don’t have as

“I think there is a preference for being involved, but I don’t think it’s accurate that millennials don’t give,” she said. “I know friends who have very little disposable income that still find ways to give to causes they’re passionate about.” Likewise, Metcalf said, it’s unfair to say older generations aren’t interested in giving of their time. “We have about four generations represented at my firm and I’ve seen my entire firm get involved in charity, and from more than just a giving standpoint,” she said. “Whether it be on boards or leading events.”

Jenny Mueller, vice president of development for the Wisconsin Humane Society, said the organization has noticed young professionals wanting not only to make a donation, but also to see the difference their donation is making by volunteering. “We’ve seen an interest in philanthropy and volunteering combine,” Mueller said. “We’ve always had a wonderfully strong volunteer program, but it’s grown even more in the last couple years. We have 1,800 people who volunteer for us right now, and some of the fastest growing opportunities I see tying into a younger generation and the ways we want to be involved.” One of those opportunities, Mueller said, is the Humane Society’s growing foster program, in which people volunteer to take shelter animals into their homes temporarily. “We’ve seen a lot of interest among younger people in this,” Mueller said. “They might have a little extra time and space where they can open up their home to the animal that needs temporary help. And those people sometimes are our donors, too, so they’re combining those things together.”

engaged with the cause and with other donors. “Volunteering has a way of bringing people together for a greater good and common cause,” Tillisch said. “So we look for opportunities that not only provide dollars, but get the younger demographic engaged.” The fund recently launched an awareness campaign aimed at reaching Milwaukee residents who may not attend performing arts shows, but appreciate the arts and all things Milwaukee, with live podcast shows at 88Nine Radio Milwaukee, Facebook Live videos, social media videos and other avenues. “We’ve noticed that giving is a little bit more transactional, so we have to look for opportunities that present that transaction – events, bringing people together, so there is a social aspect to it and they can share that they were there,” Tillisch said. “Millennials want it to be known that they’re doing something good,” added Katie Joachim, public relations and social media specialist at UPAF.

Also drawing millennials in to volunteering is the sense of community those opportunities bring.

Young people are also demanding more convenient ways of giving. Having an online platform, organizations say, is a must.

Tillisch said as UPAF looks to lower its median donor age, the organization has sought opportunities for young people to get

via smartphone. Since updating its website, the organization has seen an increase in online giving. Its monthly giving program, which allows donors to give a set amount automatically out of their checking account every month, has doubled in size in recent years.

Capturing the millennial audience is important, but also challenging, nonprofit leaders said. The increase in the number of nonprofits and charitable opportunities in recent decades has them competing for the younger generations’ attention.

“We’ve had a lot more young people sign on to be monthly donors and I think that is an easy way, on an entry level, to become a philanthropist,” she said. “People can pledge to give $5, $10, $15, $20 a month – whatever they’re comfortable with – and over time that adds up to make a big impact on our organization.”

“There are so many more options,” Tillisch said. “Because there are so many good causes out there that make the decision even more difficult from a nonprofit standpoint, we need to make sure we get our share of voice so you even know we exist. So we’re fighting for shelf space and that’s our challenge. How do we reach you in a way that is going to get you to know who we are, believe in what we do and subsequently give us a gift?”

Vincent Lyles, president and CEO of Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Milwaukee, said the organization has updated its website to allow for online giving platforms, but also is working to bolster its online presence over the next year, recognizing that younger audiences are drawn in by stories. “We’re not a hip, trendy organization; we just aren’t,” he said. “We should be, but we’re not. And so we have some ground to gain there. I think in a year or so, we’ll be able to tell a different story about our connection to young people through social media and those platforms.”

But, nonprofit leaders said, the challenge of attracting a younger audience is worth it. “I am a firm believer that there is great abundance out there in terms of time, treasures and talents,” Lyles said. “So, as we think about philanthropy, millennials are contributing and they’re making a big difference in their own way and organizations like mine really appreciate it.” •

No quick fixes in addressing racial equity with philanthropy BY LAU R EN A N DER S ON , sta ff w rite r

M

ilwaukee’s infant mortality rate reveals a stark racial disparity. As recently as 2013, black babies died at nearly three times the rate of white babies. That year, the rate of infant mortality among white babies was 5.3 deaths per 1,000 births. For African-American babies, it was 15.6. Particularly striking about the statistic is that the gap exists even when factors like education and socioeconomic status are accounted for. “We live in a community where white high school dropouts have better birth outcomes than African-American women with college degrees,” said Nicole Angresano, vice president of community impact for United Way of Greater Milwaukee & Waukesha County. “So this idea that it has to do with education or poverty – yes, those are factors that contribute, but the reality is even when you have those things in place, our African-American families are seeing losses at unacceptable degrees. There has to be something else at play there.” It’s one issue that’s become a targeted effort for United Way, as the organization directs funding and collaborates with other agencies to improve outcomes where racial disparities exist, including in education, homeownership, employment and incarceration. But just as those often persistent and systemic issues present significant challenges, the role of philanthropy in addressing them isn’t simple.  “Sometimes we get overwhelmed by what we’re being charged to do,” Angresano said. “And it’s important that we don’t because we have to figure out a way to tackle even these really, really big, hard issues if we’re really going to have change. We can’t just do low-hanging fruit.” The Greater Milwaukee Foundation has likewise brought the conversation around racial equity and philanthropy to the forefront in recent years, after formally adopting a statement in 2015 indicating its commitment to racial equity and inclusion.  As the region’s community foundation, GMF has a role in

advancing the conversation around inequity, said Darlene Russell, senior program officer for the foundation. “Being here at the foundation, with our reputation and the influence that we have and being seen as a thought leader and an investor in the greater Milwaukee community, it’s important for us to state our commitment to racial equity and inclusion for folks to know that the foundation is committed,” Russell said. While that commitment has involved investing funds in community groups that advance racial equity and inclusion, Russell said that

work began with the foundation first looking internally to facilitate open and honest conversations among the foundation’s staff and board members. “We recognize that our staff, our board of directors, we all come from different backgrounds and experiences,” she said. “So we’ve worked internally to drill down on this topic and really learn about the historical structural and systemic policies and practices that have contributed to many of the disparities that we see in our black and brown communities. It’s really prepared us to do some external work.” Rather than assuming what a community’s problems are and imposing solutions, Russell and Angresano said it’s important for philanthropic organizations to be intentional about seeking input from community members. “That’s an important piece of equity work,” Angresano said. “Who’s making the decisions? Who has influence? Who’s deciding what somebody needs? And, in far too many cases, those decisions get made top-down.”  To that end, GMF issues grants to small groups that are looking to make direct changes in their neighborhoods and recently created a fund aimed at supporting grassroots efforts in the community, a response to the unrest in Sherman Park last year.  “We are open and more intentional about reaching out to groups that are on the ground,” Russell said. “We recognize there are groups on the ground doing work that don’t always come up through our traditional grant-making process.” Despite a growing recognition of the need to fund grassroots efforts, barriers remain. Fledgling organizations may not be 501(c) (3) certified, lack sophisticated backroom operations or they may be just too small for a funder to feel good about the investment. And with a limited number of dollars to give away, established agencies tend to be seen as a safe bet. With the proliferation of nonprofits, Angresano said, smaller organizations partnering together to seek funding will be key. Philanthropic organizations have also taken on the role of raising awareness of racial inequity and fostering dialogue about those issues. United Way recently announced its new Partnership MKE initiative, a program that builds on the model of the former Mosaic Project to pair community and business executives across social divides in the community and guide them through a one-year process of learning and relationship building. The Greater Milwaukee Foundation recently hosted its first-ever

regionwide forum, called “On the Table,” which engaged more than 5,000 people from the four-county region in a discussion about improving the community. But even as awareness grows, philanthropic and community fatigue presents challenges when the dial doesn’t move as quickly as the groups would hope. While natural disasters prompt swift efforts to help those in need via large donation infusions, persistent community issues like a lack of housing or educational achievement gaps don’t necessarily trigger the same response. “It may not be a dramatic event or as obvious, but we have to be careful not to forget about this,” Angresano said. “The low-hanging fruit may show a faster return,” she added. “But some of the projects we’re working on, particularly around infant mortality reduction – these are going to take years to bear fruit. And while we’re all anxious, there has to be a patience that coexists with our urgency.” •

VolunDeering in the community BY A LYSHA SCHERTZ , sta ff w rite r

T

he Milwaukee Bucks have a long-standing history with Wisconsin and the local community. While giving back has always played a significant part in the mission of the Bucks organization, the investment in a new arena, the establishment of an official Milwaukee Bucks Foundation and a new employee engagement initiative known as the “VolunDeers” now make giving back to the community a more formal, regular practice for everyone involved. The new foundation is dedicated to improving outcomes for underserved populations in Wisconsin through grants, innovative partnerships and supporting ideas in youth education, health and wellness, and community betterment. The VolunDeers program, on the other hand, allows Bucks employees to give back in all areas that are meaningful to them.

employees to explore Milwaukee and get to know the great organizations we have here.”

EILAND

Tyra Eiland, senior coordinator for social responsibility, manages the VolunDeers program using a volunteer time tracking system called Track It Forward.

“Our employees, regardless of age, gender or race, are really interested in building relationships within the community,” said Alicia Dupies, vice president of corporate social responsibility with the Milwaukee Bucks.

The software program is integrated with the organization’s payroll system and produces a calendar of opportunities for which employees can sign up, Dupies said. Once employees commit to a particular event, the system follows up with reminder emails and alerts.

The program provides every Bucks employee 16 hours of compensated service time per year.

“Our social responsibility team vets each organization within the system,” Dupies said. “Employees are welcome to bring organizations to us they’d like to work with, but organizations within the system are those we’ve conducted site visits with, we know the work they do and we know the volunteer opportunity will be organized.”

“What it equates to for many of our employees is an ongoing commitment, a couple hours a week, a half day per quarter or a more regular commitment in order to help build lasting relationships,” Dupies said. In the first year of the program, 301 employees participated, volunteering more than 801 hours in the community at 67 different events for 46 different organizations, Dupies said.

In addition to the formation of these two entities, the Milwaukee Bucks’ $524 million arena, currently under construction and dubbed the Wisconsin Entertainment and Sports Center, is designed to be not only the hub of entertainment in the region, but also an engine for economic growth and a renewed sense of community.

Employees participating include everyone from top-level management and executives to individuals in the summer intern program.

Research indicates that employees today want to be engaged in their communities, Dupies said.

In addition to team building within the organization, VolunDeers has proven to be an important asset for employees not originally from the Milwaukee area.

“Providing these opportunities and fostering and encouraging engagement in the community is the right thing for all companies to consider,” Dupies said. “It’s a net gain in the long run. You’re adding two days to your payroll, but you’re going to instill in your employees, particularly your transplant employees, what a great community this is to live, work and play.” •

“A large percentage of our employees have relocated here from outside of the Milwaukee region,” Dupies said. “We’ve found that the program provides tremendous opportunities for those

Letting employees light the way BY MOLLY DILL , sta ff w rite r

ts generators help provide power in a multitude of situations, so it only makes sense Generac Power Systems Inc. would shed some light on its biggest fundraising activity.

At the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s Light the Night Walks in Wisconsin, the power for the booths and lights along the route is supplied by the Waukesha-based manufacturer. The walks are held in Milwaukee, Madison and Appleton in October. Generac is a six-year state leader in funds raised via Light the Night, this year pooling $150,000 through about 400 participating employees. “People bring their pets and they bring their whole families and it’s a really nice event for everyone,” said Kelly Davis, manager of community relations at Generac. “We had one employee in Waukesha who said if he was able to raise $500, he would shave his head.”

THE GENERAC TEAM AT LIGHT THE NIGHT 2017.

Other employees have come up with creative fundraisers like church potlucks, walking taco sales and pie-in-the-face contests to raise funds for Light the Night, Davis said. “We don’t just write a check,” she said. “We really follow (the employees’) lead. We don’t tell them, ‘You must do X, Y and Z.’ They really want to.

The 2,600 employees at Generac’s nine Wisconsin facilities have developed a year-round cycle of giving which includes Light the Night. “At the beginning of the year, we will ask employees to submit a nomination for a charity and then we have a program called Friday Fun Days,” on which a particular charity is highlighted and supported through fundraising activities, Davis said. Employees have three options to contribute to their chosen charities: They can participate in the Generac Gives program to nominate a charity for a direct donation by the company; they can volunteer at a nonprofit and direct a payment for their time to the organization from the company; or they can make a donation and receive an employer match in cash or product. “If an employee lets us know that they volunteered five hours with a charity, we’ll give a donation of $25 an hour to that charity,” Davis said. “It’s just a way that we can support a nonprofit and also our

employees in giving back directly.” In its philanthropic efforts, Generac prioritizes giving in the areas of education, veteran support and the broader Wisconsin community. “All of our giving activities start with an employee, so this Generac Gives program and the giving of the product or the volunteering, that’s all year round,” Davis said. “Employees can apply for that all year round and it’s very focused on what an employee wants to do and how they want to support their local community.” •

mployees at Milwaukee-based Hupy and Abraham S.C. believe the legal profession exists to serve the public.

For attorneys Michael Hupy and Jason Abraham, that goes far beyond providing personal injury law services. For them, it means giving back through not only check writing and sponsorships, but also through service hours and real work in their communities. “It was really the vision of Michael Hupy when he started the firm. It was his vision,” said Abraham, managing partner. “Due to our successes as a firm, we’ve really been able to take his vision to a whole new level, and really do our part to make the communities where we work better places.” In the past three years, Hupy and Abraham has given more than $500,000 to more than 500 local grassroots organizations.

HUPY AND ABRAHAM VOLUNTEERS RAISING AWARENESS OF PEDESTRIAN SAFETY.

Additionally, the firm has established a network of volunteer opportunities for its staff, and has implemented a volunteer program, allowing each employee to individually volunteer for four hours on company time. “We want our employees to be empowered to give back to a cause they feel passionate about,” Abraham said. “We don’t tell them where or when they should volunteer; we let them decide what they are passionate about.” Hupy and Abraham employees are so empowered that for the past two years, they raised money to provide a “gift” to the firm owners, Abraham said. In 2015, the staff raised more than $10,000 to grant two wishes through Make-A-Wish Wisconsin as a gift to the owners; and in 2016, the employees raised enough money to sponsor the construction of a Habitat for Humanity house. The project, being completed now, is helping to make a Burma couple’s dreams come true. Construction on the house started in summer 2017, and will continue until spring 2018. The firm has several teams of employees helping with the construction, including Abraham himself. “It’s incredibly rewarding to see the passion our employees have for giving back,” Abraham said. “This is money they raised amongst themselves. What an amazing gift for us and for our community.” According to Abraham, the involvement of the firm’s staff of 200 is a testament to the culture that has been created at the company. “First and foremost, we’re about providing excellent legal services to the communities where we’re located, but it’s not just that. Our employees understand it’s our civic obligation to give back; it’s just

so important to us,” he said. Hupy and Abraham has 11 offices across Wisconsin, Illinois and Iowa. The firm strives to be community-oriented and give back in each and every neighborhood, Abraham said. The firm regularly sponsors events, volunteer work and collection drives with southeastern Wisconsin organizations like COA Youth & Family Centers, Feeding America Eastern Wisconsin, the Wisconsin Humane Society, PeppNation Sports Leadership Camps and others. “Overall, it’s great to write a check, and we do that, too, on several occasions,” Abraham said. “But it’s also important for us to be out there, show that we care, and give back to the community by getting involved. It’s a great example to set not only for our own employees, but also for other firms in the community. It’s important to pay our success forward.” •

Pumping out donations to aid hurricane relief BY LAU R EN A N DER SON , sta ff w rite r

hen Hurricane Harvey first caused catastrophic floods in Texas, it prompted a massive influx of donations, supplies and volunteers.

But that natural disaster proved to be just the beginning, as three more major hurricanes – Irma, Jose and Maria – followed in short order, wreaking havoc on more communities and causing an even greater need for donations. Businesses and organizations from southeastern Wisconsin quickly rallied to help with relief efforts. In the wake of Hurricane Maria, Sussex-based nonprofit CannedWater4Kids Inc. worked with American Airlines to deliver more than 29,000 pounds of clean drinking water in 12-ounce cans to Puerto Rico. The Category 4 storm landed in Puerto Rico on Sept. 20, leaving 95 percent of the island without power and 55 percent of the population without safe drinking water. “It is hard to imagine being without clean, safe drinking water,” said Greg Stromberg, founder and chief executive officer of CannedWater4Kids. “When the American Red Cross asked for our help, we immediately said yes. It was the right thing to do.” Jackson-based Wisconsin Pharmacal Co. LLC, manufacturer of Potable Aqua water purification products, donated enough bottles of water purification tablets to purify 15,000 liters of water for those affected by hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria. The company also partnered with United Way and retailers to provide donations of personal care items like MG217 lotions, feminine health items, Coleman insect repellents and first-aid kits. “Immediately following natural disasters like Hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria, access to safe drinking water is of the utmost importance,” said John Wundrock, president and CEO of Wisconsin Pharmacal. “And in the weeks that follow, personal care products and items like first-aid kits and insect repellents, due to standing water and heat which brings mosquitoes, become increasingly important. We are committed to helping get these types of products into the hands of those who need it most.” Following Hurricane Harvey, Guy & O’Neill, a Fredonia-based manufacturer of household cleaning supplies and personal care products, shipped a semitrailer truck full of disinfecting wipes and personal hygiene products totaling about $200,000 to Texas. “Guy & O’Neill is a company that cares, and not just with our own employees and customers, but also nationally.  And the people in Houston need help,” said Tom Misgen, president of Guy & O’Neill.

“Items like cleaning wipes, bath wipes and personal hygiene products are not often the most popular to donate, but they are much needed. An item like a bath wipe can give people a little bit of normalcy back in their lives. I imagine there are people who have not had the luxury of a shower in a week or so and these products give them the opportunity to hit the reset button.” Kohl’s Corp. initially pledged $500,000 to the American Red Cross in support of hurricane relief and recovery efforts in the days following Harvey, but shortly after doubled that donation to $1 million as the need continued to grow. The Menomonee Fallsbased retailer followed that donation with an additional $1 million pledge, for a total of $2 million. “With several storms impacting our country, it’s more important than ever that Kohl’s lend our support to the American Red Cross,” said Kevin Mansell, Kohl’s chairman, CEO and president. “Our hearts are with our associates and all of the families impacted, as they work to recover. We know these affected communities will come back stronger than ever.” •

apco Metal Stamping was founded in Grafton in 1972. Tom Kacmarcik, Sr. started the company with his wife, Josephine.

In addition to quickly becoming known for making quality metal products for a customers across the Midwest, the firm was founded on the mission of being a community partner. Today, there are six entities under the Kapco Inc. umbrella: Kapco Metal Stamping, Lakeshore Chinooks, Advanced Coatings Inc., SpeedKore Performance Group, K-Nation Entertainment and nonprofit organization Hometown Heroes. The company has expanded its headquarters to include die building, fabrication, laser and CNC operations. Four new facilities were recently added in West Bend and Grafton, and a plant was also acquired in Osceola. The company has grown from its humble husband and wife team to include more than 400 employees. Yet throughout all this growth, at the heart of the company is a continued dedication to philanthropy and the community.

KACMARCIK, FOURTH FROM LEFT, WITH OTHER KAPCO VOLUNTEERS.

“Jim (Kacmarcik, president) has taken the company vision and mission to whole new levels,” said Neil Willenson, vice president of community relations at Kapco. “He believes deeply in the power of giving, but more importantly, knows instilling the value of giving in the next generation of workers will have huge rewards.” Kacmarcik is blessed to run a successful company and have a healthy, strong and successful family, and he strives daily to pay it forward, Willenson said. Kapco routinely goes beyond just writing a check, and its president does that, too, he added. “For Jim, it’s about giving people the opportunity to pay it forward, to learn the joys of giving themselves,” Willenson said.

from all over the country, entirely free of charge. Together, they can experience healing, happiness, acceptance and growth.

“It started with an internal email from Jim, telling staff to empower children to collectively purchase 1,000 toys for other less fortunate children,” Willenson said.

Additionally, Kapco annually hosts the Grand Slam Charity Jam to raise money for Hometown Heroes and the children it serves.

Last year, the drive collected more than 20,000 toys for kids with the help of partner companies and local schools. In 2013, Willenson and Kacmarcik co-founded Camp Hometown Heroes, a nonprofit organization dedicated to serving children who have lost a parent who served in the military. Each year, the organization welcomes more than 150 children

Volunteers from Kapco and other organizations in the community return each year to work at the camp.

The event, which has featured headline performers like The Jacksons, and the Commodores, raised more than $141,000 for Camp Hometown Heroes in 2017. “Kapco is committed to giving back, but more importantly to being the first ‘ripple,’” Willenson said. “Our goal is to not only have an impact on the community in the work that we do, but inspire others to get involved, take the reins and pay it forward.” •

Kohl’s harvests produce for hunger relief BY LAU R EN A N DER SON , sta ff w rite r

LAUREN ANDERSON

he apple harvest was plentiful on a recent sunny day at the Hunger Task Force Farm in Franklin, but there were plenty of hands ready to help, thanks to a longstanding partnership between the nonprofit hunger relief organization and Kohl’s Corp. The Menomonee Falls-based retailer sent more than 500 volunteers over the course of three weeks to help out on the farm, which supplies fresh produce to area food pantries. The farm, which sits on 208 acres of farmland, natural areas and educational gardens, annually produces up to 750,000 pounds of fresh fruits and vegetables. They’re grown and harvested each year with the help of nearly 5,000 volunteers. “A lot of hands are needed to help harvest the produce,” said Matt King, farm director for Hunger Task Force. “Kohl’s is here in force to help us with that. We literally would not be able to do this without volunteers.” Kohl’s maintains an ongoing partnership with Hunger Task Force, including encouraging associates to volunteer at the organization through the company’s volunteer program, hosting annual food drives at the corporate office and holding food sorting events. September is a time of year when volunteer labor is particularly important, as the fresh produce needs to be harvested efficiently and trucked to area pantries. In addition to volunteering, Kohl’s has donated more than $5 million to Hunger Task Force since 2008. Earlier this year, Kohl’s pledged a donation of $750,000 to support a new initiative from the Hunger Task Force called the MyPlate program. Influenced by the USDA MyPlate food model, the program raises awareness of incorporating all five food groups. The majority of the Kohl’s donation was used to purchase 700,000 pounds of food aimed at helping offset the cost of supplying the Hunger Task Force network with the foods needed to stock MyPlate-certified pantries. “Giving back is at the heart of who we are as a company,” said Jen Johnson, vice president of corporate communications for Kohl’s. “Whether it’s supporting programs and services, hosting annual food drives at our corporate campus, or the nearly 9,000 hours our associates have spent volunteering for the organization, Kohl’s is committed to making a positive impact on our hometown through our continued work with Hunger Task Force.” As a longtime partner, Kohl’s understands the need for food in the

community and enables the organization to better fulfill its mission, King said. “They understand the needs in our community and how to address them thoughtfully and strategically,” he said. “Having a long-term partner like that allows us to formulate a long-term strategy and make investments of resources in a more strategic way.” In addition to helping serve the community, the opportunity to volunteer alongside co-workers outside the office is also valuable for Kohl’s associates, King said. “It’s a unique opportunity for people from a primarily urban environment to engage in an agricultural setting and to have a service opportunity that benefits the whole community,” he said. “It’s a great team building opportunity. The teams from Kohl’s are able to work toward a common goal that’s outside of their normal business routine, to work outside and as a team, all while doing something positive and productive.” •

Building up Washington Park, one house at a time BY LAU R EN A N DER SON , sta ff w rite r

he walls to Lavitta Moore’s brand new home in Milwaukee’s Washington Park neighborhood had only just gone up, but she already had plans in mind for after the house was finished.

“My first plan is to get a new kitchen table,” Moore said on the construction site of her house on the 2100 block of North 31st Street. “I haven’t had a chance to buy a new kitchen table, but I’m going to get one and then make a big meal for my family.” Throughout a week in September, Moore, joined by dozens of volunteers from Komatsu Mining Corp., worked to build her very first non-rental home. For Komatsu, the recent building blitz was a continuation of an ongoing partnership to build nearly 20 houses with Milwaukee Habitat for Humanity in the Washington Park neighborhood.  Komatsu, formerly Joy Global Inc., has raised more than $1.3 million for Habitat since 2011, a result of employee giving, company match and proceeds from its golf outing. And the company has donated more than 7,300 volunteer hours to Habitat in that same time.  “One of our objectives is we want to be involved in the community where we are,” said John Koetz, president of surface mining.  “We have 139 locations around the world, and in each community, we try to make sure we do something to build it up and improve the lives of not just employees, but the overall community.” Washington Park is particularly meaningful to the company because many employees grew up in that neighborhood and live in or near it, he said.  Earlier this year, Habitat announced plans to expand its neighborhood revitalization efforts from Washington Park to the Midtown neighborhood, with a $9 million commitment over the next three years. As the organization begins to focus its efforts on the area that encompasses West North Avenue to West Lisbon Avenue and from North 30th to North 25th streets, Komatsu has signed on to continue supporting that work. The opportunity to give back to the community is popular among employees, Koetz said. Each year, when Komatsu notifies employees of the opportunity to participate in the weeklong Habitat Blitz Build in September, they are eager to sign up. “We actually have to do a drawing for who gets to come out and help,” he said.  Employees return throughout the year to help with drywall and

painting projects. Koetz said the neighborhood has undergone a transformation from six years ago, when the company first began helping with the building projects. There once were safety concerns about working in the neighborhood. Now, children run around the area and dilapidated houses have been transformed into quality homes with landscaping.  “That’s a really exciting part for us – to see what we did here and see it turned into a home, with furniture and flowers,” Koetz said. “It’s not just a building, it’s a family’s home.” Moore, a single mother of three who had to move after rental rates were increased at her last apartment, said she’s grateful that volunteers are willing to help make her affordable and safe home a reality. “There are a lot of people out there who care and who are willing and want to help,” she said. “I’ve been a CNA for 12 years. I got into that field to help others, not expecting for others to return the favor. So seeing everyone out here helping, I feel blessed.” •

GOALS

F U N D R A I S I N G/ E V E N T S

ABCD believes that a connected life is an empowered, healthier life. A breast cancer diagnosis changes a life forever. It can be a lonely, overwhelming experience. ABCD Mentors, volunteers and staff understand these feelings and believe that no one needs to feel alone after hearing the words, “you have breast cancer.” Our key goals include: increased access to peer-to-peer support for patients and loved ones, improved services for the medically under-served including military/ veteran families and Spanish-speaking, collaboration with those supporting research and overall wellness, and increased volunteer engagement.

At ABCD’s annual community-wide fundraiser, Date with a Plate, guests raise dollars to support ABCD’s unique services and increase awareness about the importance of peer-topeer support. In addition, the Power of One-to-One Award is given to a person or company who has helped expand the reach of ABCD’s services. Third party fundraisers also help to support ABCD through product sales, restaurant-based events, golf outings, workplace incentives such as jeans day at the office, and various sporting events. For more information about these options contact us at 414.410.3213 or communications@abcdmentor.org.

VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES

GIVING OPPORTUNITIES

If you are a survivor, someone living with breast cancer or are a family member or friend who has supported a breast cancer patient, you can train to become an ABCD Mentor to help provide support to others. Additional volunteer opportunities include: Healthcare Liaisons (regular outreach with breast cancer healthcare providers), Ambassadors (staffing information tables), Special Events Teams (committee and day-of volunteering for fundraisers and Mentor appreciation gatherings) and Board and Board Committee members.

ABCD’s vision can be supported through direct individual gifts (cash or appreciated assets), tribute/memorial gifts, corporate/foundation grants, and workplace giving (Community Health Charities/United Way of Greater Milwaukee & Waukesha). We also appreciate in-kind gifts such as catering for our volunteer events as well as other goods and services. Our community of donors receives regular mission updates, community presentations and social media promotions.

EXECUTIVE LEADERSHIP

GOALS

F U N D R A I S I N G/ E V E N T S

Atonement’s funding goals are to expand the educational equipment and furnishings in the new school building and to reduce the new building debt. With the school building expansion, Atonement Lutheran School will consolidate its 3K through 8th grade educational experience into one building with adequate room for 500 children. Early intervention is a key to successful education. By enrolling children in the educational process at age three and by providing consistently strong educational experiences, more urban children will be able to maximize their full potential. Providing funds for equipment, furnishings, and the building expansion are means to this end.

Presently Atonement Lutheran School is raising funds for student related technology such as chromebooks and smartboards, equipping and furnishing the new school addition, security gating and fencing, outdoor learning and play areas, and equipment for a new early childhood gymnasium. Atonement Lutheran School is nearing completion of a 23,000 square foot classroom, gymnasium, and office addition that will help increase enrollment capacity by 250 students. Funds are also needed to reduce the impact of the debt on the operating budget. Atonement would like to continue to expand its early childhood and day care programs.

VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES

GIVING OPPORTUNITIES

Volunteers are needed to help and support the parents and families of the children in the school and community. Volunteers may read to and with the students. Atonement runs a clothing bank and provides some food for the school families. Volunteers may help in these areas. Volunteers also are used to correct assignments and cut and prepare learning activities. Volunteers may also be used to monitor outdoor student activities.

Giving opportunities primarily come through direct gifts of checks and cash. The Atonement website is equipped with an on-line giving system. Presently, Atonement is conducting a campaign called “Building on the Rock” which has received a number of gifts for equipping and furnishing the new school addition.

GOALS

F U N D R A I S I N G/ E V E N T S

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.

VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES

GIVING OPPORTUNITIES

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.

GOALS

F U N D R A I S I N G/ E V E N T S

In order for Wisconsin’s kids to be the healthiest in the nation, we believe that providing the best care for kids goes beyond treating them only when they are sick or injured. We have partnered with residents, community agencies, health care providers and families to make a significant impact on kids’ overall health and reach families beyond our hospital and clinic walls. 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. And when kids are sick or injured, Children’s offers the kind of singular, dedicated focus they need because we care for 100% kids and teens all the time.

Attending a fundraising event is a fun way to support Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin and meet others who share your passion for helping kids. Our calendar includes well-known annual events as well as hundreds of independent fundraisers. Our best-known events include an annual run & walk, radiothon, luncheons, dinners, golf outings and more. We are also fortunate to have hundreds of generous organizations and individuals in the community who hold fundraising events on our behalf. We would welcome the opportunity to guide you through that process. For a list of upcoming events supporting Children’s, visit chw.org/foundationevents.

Helping us lead the way in pediatric medicine and child-family services are our dedicated volunteers. Each of them offers something special, and each has the power to positively impact patient and family experiences along the way. We have a wide range of volunteer offerings with varying levels of time commitment involved – everything from helping in our Wauwatosa or Neenah hospitals, to pitching in at fundraising events, caring for children through our respite program or contacting legislators about issues that impact children.

We rely on philanthropic support to help fund our programs, from research and critical care for the sickest kids and babies, to community initiatives designed to keep kids healthy. There are many ways to support the care we give to kids, including online donations, estate giving, corporate giving and special event fundraising and participation. By making Children’s your cause of choice, you are impacting care for kids and families across the state. Learn more at chw.org/giving.

SERVICE AREA Feeding America Eastern Wisconsin works with a network of more than 600 hunger-relief partners to distribute 25.6 million pounds of food to 400,000 people across 36 counties in eastern Wisconsin.

Driven by our mission to solve hunger and our vision of a hunger-free Wisconsin, Feeding America Eastern Wisconsin is bringing more people together around the table to ensure everyone has access to nutritious food. It’s a mission that began in 1982 with a bushel of apples and a commitment from the Rotary Club of Milwaukee to help those facing hunger.

FUNDING SOURCES

Today, we are building upon that local grass-roots effort to find innovative solutions to address the root causes of hunger.

F U N D R A I S I N G/ E V E N T S Whether you’re a foodie, a runner, an art lover or just like to get out and meet new people, Feeding America Eastern Wisconsin and our partners offer many unique events for you to have a great time and help solve hunger at the same time. Learn more at FeedingAmericaWI.org/Events.

When you give your time to Feeding America Eastern Wisconsin, you get back something amazing in return, maybe even life-changing: the feeling that you personally are helping put food on the tables of families who need it.

GOALS

F U N D R A I S I N G/ E V E N T S

The curriculum is based on current research in the field of elementary education, social-emotional learning, and positive-youth development. Over 10-weeks, lessons focus 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.

GOTRSEWI’s main fundraiser is our Sneaker Soiree evening gala/auction, scheduled early March with cocktail attire and fun sneakers encouraged. We host two GOTRSEWI inspired 5K events each year. These celebratory 5Ks are the culmination of our 10-week program and a participant or running buddy will not walk away without a smile. The 5K’s are open to all. Our Fall 5K is mid-November/early December and our Spring 5K is early June. During our 5K events we host a Healthy Choices expo and vendors/sponsors are encouraged to attend. Please check our website for registration and details for all of our events.

VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES

GIVING OPPORTUNITIES

GOTRSEWI has many PEOPLE POWER opportunities including: • Coaches/Assistant Coaches/Junior Coaches (10 weeks/ twice per week Fall or Spring – you don’t have to be a runner, we’ll train you on the curriculum) • GOTRSEWI Site Visitor (visit GOTR sites, motivate and cheer on GOTR girls) • Events Staffing (staff our expos, water stops, info tables) • 5K Volunteer (two 5Ks offered per year) • Committee positions (5K, Sneaker Soiree, SoleMates)

The generosity of donors ensures that more girls can experience this life-changing program. We are committed to offering this program to all girls and to provide any girl who needs them, a free pair of running shoes. Over 50% of our young girls are in financial need. Giving options include; individual contributions, in-kind gifts, annual appeal, event sponsorship and workplace giving campaigns. Corporate and foundation support through grants and sponsorships is greatly appreciated.

GOALS Hospice Alliance was founded more than 35 years ago by a group of community citizens. Since our inception, our goal has remained unchanged: to provide comfort-focused, compassionate care, allowing patients at end of life and their loved ones who support them to live every day to the fullest, regardless of ability to pay. While the majority of our patients are cared for in their own homes, our Hospice House, located in Pleasant Prairie, provides 24/7 care in a residential, home-like setting. We are a leader in education and grief support, providing information and bereavement service throughout the communities we serve.

F U N D R A I S I N G/ E V E N T S An Evening of Wishes is Hospice Alliance’s signature fundraiser. The annual event, along with our annual appeal solicitation, raise funds to cover the deficit resulting from uncompensated health care, as well as the operation of our Hospice House residential care facility. Additionally, each month Hospice Alliance offers “Dining for Donations” teaming up with a local restaurant for supporters to enjoy. In turn, the eatery donates a portion of its sales benefit our patients and families.

VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES

GIVING OPPORTUNITIES

More than 150 volunteers share their time with us, assisting in the following ways: with patients at our Hospice House, in homes providing respite care or life enrichment activities, in the office or out in the community at outreach events or making deliveries.

Hospice Alliance welcomes charitable giving to support its services. Donations help to bridge the gap created by uncompensated and unpaid medical care and to ensure that life-enriching services can be provided and enhanced through financial contributions from individuals - often as tributes, memorials or planned giving, corporations and foundations are welcome.

A special group, known as Vigil Volunteers, are called upon when a patient is near end-of-life and loved ones are unavailable, to ensure our promise that no one dies alone.

Hospice Alliances’ Evening of Wishes annual event offers sponsorship and in-kind donation opportunities. To discuss supporting Hospice Alliance, please contact 262.652.4400.

Kathy’s House is a hospital guest house that provides affordable lodging and caring support for patients and their families who need to travel to Milwaukee for medical care. Since opening in 2001, we have served 17,000 guests.

Kathy’s House provided

us a shelter in the storm.

It was a safe and calm place

where we could relax, unwind and rest after a stressful day. While Froedtert Hospital and the Medical College of Wisconsin took care of our physical needs, Kathy’s House

provided emotional care.

The MACC Fund supports research for childhood cancer and related blood disorders like sickle cell disease and aplastic anemia. Thanks to generous supporters, the MACC Fund has contributed over $60 million to research in Wisconsin benefiting children throughout the world and helping the overall cure rate for childhood cancer to increase from 20% to 80% since the MACC Fund began in 1976, yet children can relapse and have “late effect” issues that require additional research. MACC Fund supported research impacts the treatment of children throughout the state, the nation and the world.

Outreach relies on support from those who care about our mission throughout the year, and does not currently conduct events focused on fundraising. Sponsorship opportunities are available for events we conduct to benefit our patient population and the community at large. These include an annual Health and Resources Fair held each August, and several Baby Shower events held throughout the year.

VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES

GIVING OPPORTUNITIES

SHARP offers many ways to volunteer: At a variety of events, volunteer assistance makes it easier for the staff to accomplish its tasks. In classrooms, SHARP presenters appreciate assistance working with students. An important SHARP component is students visiting docent-led educational tours to museums and other sites; extra chaperones are always a plus! And in the office, at certain times extra helping hands are needed to lessen the load for the staff.

SHARP Literacy appreciates donations from individuals, foundations, corporations, and other groups. Donations can be monetary, materials, or volunteer time. Matching funds from employers, bequests and estate planning are important giving avenues to consider. SHARP needs and utilizes a variety of artifacts to reinforce vocabulary, so donations of such materials are another means to give. These sources of income help students in the SHARP program to receive the skills they need to succeed.

ll too often and ironically, we find that organizations in the human service industry are lacking the “human” component. Finding quality and committed caregivers for our most disadvantaged populations can be an overwhelming challenge. Sadly, over the past few years, many providers in Wisconsin have succumb to this challenge and have left vulnerable individuals without a proper support system.

St. Coletta of Wisconsin’s mission statement reflects the long-term commitment we have in serving our individuals with developmental disabilities and other challenges. Over the past 18 months, we have invested heavily in our caregivers and our 92% staff retention rate echoes our efforts, but more importantly, we have seen a major

shift in the outcomes for the individuals we serve. Stable staffing in our homes and day programs provides security and comfort to the over 300 individuals we support throughout Southeastern Wisconsin and Northern Illinois. Once you walk through the doors at St. Coletta you are not just a person served or a staff member, you are family.

49 residential homes owned and operated by St. Coletta.

Over 20 young adults building life skills though the Genesis Program.

We have a broad range of recreational activities and classes that build strong life skills. We don’t do it because we have to, we do it because we want to. Life is a journey and it is about the experiences and friends you make along the way. At St. Coletta, our greatest asset and strength lies within our network of staff and persons served. For us, it’s in the people.
