Profiles in philanthropy The Milwaukee area is a great place to live, work and play, but our community also has a number of major challenges, some of which were demonstrated by the civil unrest in the city’s Sherman Park neighborhood this past summer. Luckily, there is an eager and driven group of leaders and organizations working to make a difference in our community – from the inner city to the suburbs. The following Profiles in Philanthropy detail the individual and collective efforts of the Milwaukee area’s professional community to lift up their fellow Milwaukeeans and extend aid where it’s needed. From those who find their passion in a charity’s mission to the next generation of givers, there are many local efforts underway to lend a hand through the donation of time, talent and treasure. BizTimes Media has highlighted a few of the beacons of hope in our midst. Each profile also aims to inspire readers to step outside the walls of their workplace and contribute to a community cause that aligns with their passions.

ere’s the situation: you’re a small business owner, an executive at a large corporation or a retiree trying to decide what to do with your spare time and money.

There are multiple paths each budding philanthropist or community-minded business can take to start giving back, and no one way is perfect.

You’ve decided you’d like to start trying your hand at philanthropy, and may even have selected a few causes you’d like to support in some way. But you’re not sure how to get started or which way to give.

Regardless of the path they choose, local business leaders are finding it’s important to start giving or contributing whichever way they can.

Do you start volunteering? Would it be better to set up a family foundation or start a fund at an existing foundation? Should you organize a volunteering program to encourage your employees to get involved? How?

“We’ve seen an 11 percent increase in the last two-and-a-half years in corporate programs and corporate foundations,” said Jill Van Calster, president and chief executive officer of the Wisconsin Philanthropy Network.

CORPORATE PROFILE

In other words, some companies have found that aligning their corporate giving with causes or initiatives in fields related to their own businesses can actually help their bottom line down the road. Through its involvement with a nonprofit organization to tackle issues such as illiteracy, environmental problems or skills gaps, a company can discover new markets, improve a community’s pool of potential employees, or supplement its own research and development efforts. Employees volunteering with an outside charitable organization in a related field may find themselves using their experiences to solve a supply chain problem or approach their work in a more innovative way. Volunteering in a related field can also boost a company’s reputation in a given industry and give it more authority among consumers. VOLUNTEERS FROM JOY GLOBAL AND CATHOLIC FINANCIAL LIFE VOLUNTEER TIME TO MILWAUKEE HABITAT FOR HUMANITY.

The reasons vary from company to company, she said, but overall, there are a couple things driving the uptick in corporate giving.

On the local level, several manufacturing companies, including Milwaukee-based Monarch Corp. and Menomonee Falls-based Bradley Corp., have invested in workforce development programs at local schools to eliminate the skills gap in the local workforce.

CORPORATE CITIZENSHIP “They want to be good corporate citizens,” Van Calster said of the WPN’s corporate clients. “They want to be seen as concerned, as involved in the community. And they want to do it effectively.”

For example, national big box home improvement retailer Lowe’s Cos. Inc. has given $63 million to Habitat for Humanity since 2003 to repair or rehabilitate homes in struggling neighborhoods around the country. Lowe’s gave a $250,000 grant to Milwaukee Habitat for Humanity in June to fix up 25 homes in Washington Park.

The programs they support are helping to address important economic disparity issues in the City of Milwaukee by giving students and adults access to training that could help them land well-paying jobs. But those programs also are helping to fill their own employment needs. VAN CALSTER

Being a good corporate citizen can have multiple benefits for a large corporation. It can give the company a friendlier image among consumers, forge lasting relationships with community partners and even support its overall business strategy. “It’s not that members of the C-suite have suddenly discovered altruism,” wrote Daryl Brewster, chief executive officer of the Committee Encouraging Corporate Philanthropy, in a 2015 study examining corporate giving trends. “Rather, today’s instantaneous, transparent and hyper-connected exchange of data has spawned a new reality. In a world where all stakeholders – customers, neighbors, regulators and shareholders – can see inside the enterprise, leaders in the corporate sector have committed to an enlightened self-interest in societal investment. “Conceiving and executing a ‘giving’ strategy need not entail a zero-sum construct that opposes ‘making money.’ Indeed, when corporate societal investment harmonizes with a company’s business strategy, the whole becomes greater than the sum of its parts.”

Another example: WPN member Direct Supply Inc., a quiet but rapidly growing employee-owned company on Milwaukee’s northwest side that has become a major player in the senior living industry, has made giving to causes that address health and wellness issues among the elderly a priority. The issues employee volunteers or partner organizations encounter among seniors could help inform the design of existing products or spark the creation of a new product line. “That’s the type of thing that’s always interesting to see – how their business model integrates with their giving model,” said Laura Worcester, WPN’s director of development. “It’s fascinating for us to see relationships like that.”

RECRUITMENT Van Calster said corporations that approach the WPN to develop or

improve their giving mechanisms usually do one of two things: start a corporate giving program in which they give money to organizations their employees say they’re interested in, or set up a corporate foundation to begin awarding grants through a competitive application process. And it’s no coincidence there’s been an uptick in the number of corporations that have approached the WPN for help getting started. In addition to a genuine desire to give back among some corporate leaders, getting involved with philanthropic initiatives is becoming a bigger deal when it comes to recruiting top-tier talent. “Especially when you look at millennials,” Van Calster said. “They’re looking for companies that are corporate citizens. If you just pick maybe five or six businesses, go to their website, there will almost invariably be a community involvement or corporate responsibility section.” To name a few, Kohl’s Corp., WEC Energy Group, Johnson Controls

2017 GIVING GUIDE | www.biztimes.com/giving

Inc., Rockwell Automation Inc. and MillerCoors LLC all have links to corporate responsibility, ethics or sustainability sections on the home pages of their websites. In a recent survey of millennials in the U.S. – roughly 73 million people born between 1980 and 1996 – conducted by Gallup, participants reported a desire to not only have a stable, well-paying job, but also to be emotionally and behaviorally connected to the companies they work for. “Millennials want to have high levels of wellbeing, which means more than being physically fit,” the report reads. “Yes, millennials want to be healthy; but they also want a purposeful life, active community and social ties, and financial stability.” And according to the statistics, most employers have been struggling to engage millennial workers. Of the respondents to the Gallup poll, only 29 percent reported being engaged at work, defined as “emotionally and behaviorally connected to the

CORPORATE PROFILE

company.” Worse, 16 percent reported being actively disengaged at work, meaning they were out to do damage to their own company. Around 55 percent reported not being engaged or being “checked out” at work, meaning they were not putting much energy or passion into their jobs. And with 21 percent of millennials reporting changing jobs within the past 12 months, companies have been looking for different ways to both retain young talent and better engage the talent they have. One way to do that is by increasing the company’s commitment to corporate giving. “The concept of corporate responsibility is something that a lot of businesses take very seriously,” Van Calster said. “They really want to promote to their employees that they’re good corporate citizens as well.”

GETTING STARTED Businesses can create programs to incentivize their employees to get out and volunteer. Some send out large groups of employees to participate in charity events such as runs, walks and bike rides. Others have taken to giving employees a certain amount of paid volunteer time each year. Companies can choose to create

their own foundations and hire an employee to manage it and administer grants. If that’s too costly or time consuming, some corporate executives or company leaders may establish a fund within an existing foundation, such as the Greater Milwaukee Foundation, that will manage it for a fee. Still other organizations join groups like the Wisconsin Philanthropy Network to get advice on which path to take or how to improve their existing philanthropic efforts. “We get calls frequently from businesses, particularly when they have corporate giving programs as opposed to corporate foundations, and their giving program is not well structured,” Van Calster said. “I think they’re seeing a need to learn how to structure their program. Some of the individuals that are overseeing these programs may be new to this type of role. They’re coming in from other parts of the organization without a strong background in philanthropy.” There are a number of different routes businesses can take to start giving, and regardless of how or why they chose to do so, there are always ways to improve. But the most important thing is to get started. •

s an emergency response property restoration company, Belfor Property Restoration Milwaukee is accustomed to helping in times of need.

But in addition to providing services for natural disasters, fires and floods, the Wauwatosa company has signed on as a partner for Revitalize Milwaukee, formerly known as Rebuilding Together Greater Milwaukee, an organization that responds to a different type of emergency. Each year, hundreds of veterans, elderly individuals and people with disabilities are forced to leave their homes because they can’t keep up with the repairs and maintenance. Revitalize Milwaukee provides critical home repairs and services, free of charge, to eligible homeowners throughout the community. Belfor became involved with Revitalize Milwaukee after the company responded to a fire at a local Sherwin-Williams store. The fire significantly damaged the store and a large amount of inventory, but much of the paint was donated to RM, said Jeff Kaminski, general manager of Belfor Milwaukee. “The organization didn’t have the equipment to pick up the paint, and so we volunteered our trucks and a couple of employees to bring it over. There, we found out who they were and what they do,” Kaminski said. “That was only the beginning.” Revitalize Milwaukee seeks to revitalize neighborhoods through its work, and relies heavily on community support and donations to do that.

JEFF KAMINSKI

BELFOR PROPERTY RESTORATION MILWAUKEE PLAYED AN INTEGRAL PART IN REBUILDING TOGETHER’S ANNUAL BLOCK BUILD.

In addition to spending several weeks ordering supplies and tracking deliveries, Belfor and its subcontractors had 25 to 30 people on site for the event, said Carrie Kaminski, marketing and sales coordinator.

Job sites varied in scope and size, and included the installation of accessible ramps and grab bars; reinforcement of existing railings, stairways, porches and landings; repairs or replacement of security locks; general painting; minor plumbing; electrical; and cleaning work.

Belfor played an integral role in the organization’s annual Block Build MKE event.

Block Build pulls together hundreds of volunteers to repair multiple homes in a single day in an effort to revamp and revitalize communities. “The Block Build was Belfor’s opportunity to get involved in a much larger way,” Katz-Petted said. “They provided logistics and materials support, assisted in coordinating and acquiring materials, and also provided manual labor to ultimately make the day successful.”

“We provide gap services and emergency response services in order to keep people in their homes long-term,” said Lynnea KatzPetted, chief executive officer of Revitalize Milwaukee. “No other organization provides support in emergency situations like we do,” she said. “We support approximately 350 projects a year and are 99 percent privately funded. Without our volunteers, the work we do would not be possible.”

IN ADDITION TO PROVIDING LOGISTICS AND MATERIAL SUPPORT FOR BLOCK BUILD, BELFOR TEAM MEMBERS WERE IN CHARGE OF REPAIRS AND MAINTENANCE ON SEVERAL HOMES DURING THE EVENT.

“At the end of the day, we accomplished quite a bit,” Jeff said. “Getting to meet these people and know we’re truly doing something good for people who really need it is a great takeaway. We take great pride in the work that we are able to do for them.” Belfor now serves as an on-call partner for Revitalize Milwaukee and helps whenever possible. •

hen you’re in the business of affordable housing, you’re in the business of helping people. Period.

West Allis-based Cardinal Capital Management Inc. and affiliate company Astar Capital Management Inc. have acquired, developed and rehabbed approximately 9,000 multi-family housing units across the country. According to Erich Schwenker, president of Cardinal Capital Management, about 95 percent of those projects are done in partnership with nonprofit organizations, and 90 percent serve residents at or below the poverty line. “Being a for-profit company provides us with the flexibility our nonprofit SCHWENKER partners don’t always have,” Schwenker said. “It can be difficult for these organizations and their boards of directors to react quickly. We have to be prepared to help them, and we do.” Cardinal Capital routinely steps in when grant money or additional funding doesn’t come through for specific projects, Schwenker said. “We’re here to support these organizations throughout the entire process. If that means stepping up and finding money or furniture or other services, that’s what we’re going to do,” he said. In addition to stepping up when needed financially, Cardinal Capital has made several internal commitments to better the lives of those who reside in its communities. One such initiative is the company’s plan to provide free Wi-Fi in all of its units. “The true cost of this is extensive,” Schwenker said. “But we can’t think in terms of dollars. Access to the Internet often means access to opportunities, access to jobs, access to other resources.” According to Schwenker, while access has improved, minorities, people with disabilities, seniors and lower income households are less likely to have the technology available to access the Internet. More than 1,000 units in the company’s portfolio are already connected, but Cardinal Capital hopes to continue to work to provide Internet access in all of its units. Cardinal Capital employees believe in the company’s goals, and often take matters into their own hands.

This is evidenced by Chris Geiger, asset manager at Cardinal Capital, and his wife, Karla, who had a passion for gardening, starting what is now the Gardening Through Community initiative. A program that began as a sharing of hobbies and talent has grown into a platform with social and economic effects in many communities in Wisconsin.

CARDINAL CAPITAL MANAGEMENT HAS CREATED MORE THAN 106 COMMUNITY GARDENS.

“Our passion for gardening, the outdoors and construction has evolved into (106) community garden beds at (56) housing sites, directly impacting (more than 2,800) residents,” Geiger said. Not only do the gardens promote healthy eating, but they also educate residents, promote social interaction, encourage physical activity and improve psychological wellbeing. “I’m very proud of this program,” Schwenker said. “It’s entirely volunteer-run, and while we support the program with some funding, our vendors and corporate sponsors have been wonderful.” “It’s easy to recognize the needs and obstacles that our residents go through on a daily basis. I’m lucky enough to work for a company where our leadership and the employees really care about our residents,” said Lindsay O’Connell, social services manager. •

or 32 years, Direct Supply Inc. has called Milwaukee’s Havenwoods neighborhood home. Throughout its history, the company has advocated for its neighbors in the community and throughout the city. Ten years ago, in an effort to formalize and support the already robust involvement of many Direct Supply employees, the company organized a Community Involvement Committee. Sharon Jordan, senior manager of community relations, started the initiative as a volunteer. “I knew there was a need,” Jordan said, “From an involvement perspective, from a recruitment and retention perspective, and even just thinking about the visibility of the organization throughout the community. We wanted to do more.” At the time, there were less than 200 employees at Direct Supply. According to Jordan, it was a very tight knit community, and the implementation of the Community Involvement Committee proved even more beneficial as the company continued to grow.

DIRECT SUPPLY EMPLOYEES PARTICIPATED IN THE BLOCK BUILD MKE EVENT THIS SPRING.

Last year, Direct Supply partnered with more than 52 communitybased and nonprofit organizations. “In 2015, our (employees) led 178 community service events, harnessing the energy of over 1,600 volunteers, and volunteered over 7,200 hours to make a difference in our community,” Jordan said. The company strongly encourages employees to get involved in causes close to them, and promotes multiple causes in areas like health, education and community and neighborhood improvement, Jordan said. Each year, Direct Supply sponsors Senior Day at Summerfest. It’s the company’s largest volunteer event. According to Mandy Clarke, manager of community involvement operations, Direct Supply’s sponsorship allows senior citizens into the park for free from noon to 4 p.m. The company brings more than 20 senior-focused vendors on-site for the event, and partners with area senior living communities and senior centers to encourage members to attend. They also sponsor the Golden Idols, a performance event for seniors. “It’s a really great way for us to interact with our seniors,” said Bob Klein, senior vice president and chief administrative officer. Direct Supply is a senior living industry supplier and offers equipment, furnishings, renovation and design services, technology solutions, building management services and automated procurement services to senior living communities. In addition to company-organized events, the Community

Involvement Committee has established ongoing relationships with several organizations. Direct Supply checks in with them on a monthly basis to determine their current needs and presents those opportunities to its employees, Jordan said. “Giving back to our community is ingrained in our company’s culture, led by our founder and CEO, Bob Hillis, and his wife, Jenny,” Klein said. “The efforts of people like Sharon and the members of the Community Involvement Committee have really effectuated that emphasis. The grassroots effort took hold not only because of the work they do, but also because we are fortunate to have so many (employees) who are passionate about giving back.” Direct Supply is committed to Milwaukee, Jordan said. “Our volunteer commitment allows us to support the important work of organizations within the community and provide our (employees), friends, family and pets with opportunities to participate, engage and give back to the great organizations and causes we support.” •

or Milwaukee-based architecture firm Kahler Slater Inc., community is more than just a core value. The firm embodies the word community.

From the very foundation of Kahler Slater in 1908, the company has dedicated its time, talent and treasure to the communities it serves. The company recently formalized that commitment by establishing a program designed specifically for giving back. “We’ve always done a lot for the community, but it’s always been more on an ad hoc basis. We knew if we focused our energy, we could do more,” said Kelly Gaglione, executive vice president. Five years ago, Kahler Slater formed a community committee and launched a program through which the firm selects one organization to partner with for two years. The hope was that by pooling the group’s energy and resources behind a single cause, Kahler Slater could have more impact in the community, Gaglione said.

IN 2015, SEVERAL VOLUNTEERS FROM KAHLER SLATER SPENT THE DAY HELPING WITH THE HARVEST AT THE HUNGER TASK FORCE FARM IN FRANKLIN.

For the past two years, Kahler Slater has supported Milwaukeebased Hunger Task Force. Before that, it was Habitat for Humanity. For those two years Kahler Slater becomes a sort of “lifeline” for the organization, according to Gaglione. “We are there for them to call upon for whatever they may need,” she said. “We are there if they need additional volunteers, event support or outreach. We’re a great first call for the organization.” For Hunger Task Force, Kahler Slater has been a valuable partner. In addition to providing volunteers, the company regularly promotes events like the Hunger Task Force peanut butter drive and the Turkey Ticker internally and on the firm’s social media accounts. In 2015, the company took about 120 Kahler Slater employees to the Hunger Task Force Farm in Franklin to help with the annual harvest. “The Kahler Slater team has brought an incredible amount of excitement, energy and teamwork to support Hunger Task Force,” said Sherri Tussler, executive director of Hunger Task Force. “We’re incredibly grateful for the generosity and support of all our Kahler Slater volunteers.”

KAHLER SLATER EMPLOYEES SORT FOOD FOR HUNGER TASK FORCE.

Criteria include: enough volunteer opportunities to accommodate Kahler Slater’s size; opportunities to serve the mission of the organization in each of Kahler Slater’s locations (Milwaukee, Madison and Singapore); and similarly aligned values and goals. Nominations are open to all Kahler Slater staff members, and often include nonprofits with which they are already involved, Gaglione said.

Kahler Slater is just finishing up year two of its commitment to Hunger Task Force. The firm is currently in the process of selecting the next organization it will support.

“We receive several nominations every year, which just goes to show the commitment to community extends far beyond this formalized program,” she said. “Our people are heavily involved in the communities where they live and work.”

Organizations are selected from nominations submitted by Kahler Slater staff and are based on a set of established criteria, said Alison LoCoco, marketing manager at Kahler Slater.

The nomination list will be narrowed down to three before a final selection is made in January 2017, LoCoco said. •

hat do you hope to accomplish in life? The answer to that question for Dan Adam, one of Meghan Shannon’s former colleagues, was “To lead a happy life and to have done a little good along the way.” Tragically, Adam passed away. However, these words read at his memorial really resonated with Shannon. “It’s very simple, but so impactful,” she said. “I truly enjoy my volunteer work, and I can just hope that I’m doing my part to put a little good back in the world.” Shannon, a shareholder at Reinhart Boerner Van Deuren in Milwaukee, has served on the boards of the Zoological Society of Milwaukee and Susan G. Komen for nearly a decade. She also was one of the founding members of Momentum Milwaukee; SHANNON has dedicated time to the United Way of Greater Milwaukee & Waukesha County’s Emerging Leaders Council and Day of Action; and is involved in Reinhart’s efforts with Junior Achievement.

SHANNON REGULARLY DEDICATES HER TIME TO THE PRESERVATION AND CONSERVATION OF THE MILWAUKEE COUNTY ZOO.

Shannon first joined Susan G. Komen Southeast Wisconsin as treasurer in 2009. “It’s a cause that, unfortunately, affects almost everyone you come across,” she said. “Breast cancer doesn’t discriminate, and almost everyone you know has been impacted by it in one way or another.” Shannon served as treasurer for three years, then president for two years and past president for a year. During her tenure with Susan G. Komen Southeast Wisconsin, the annual Race for the Cure grew to more than 17,000 participants and the organization raised more than $2 million annually. She also helped Susan G. Komen install a new accounting system, relocate offices, implement a new employee benefits program and hire a new executive director. Shannon is still one of the organization’s top individual fundraisers. Her six-year term ended in March 2015, after which she was one of five people unanimously elected to the national Susan G. Komen board of directors. Shannon grew up in the Milwaukee area and had fond memories of going to the Milwaukee County Zoo. So when a colleague asked her to join the Zoological Society board, she agreed. “We are very blessed to have such a wonderful community asset for families and children,” Shannon said. “I want to do whatever I

can to help preserve that for the community.” Shannon has been an integral part of the society’s special events team, and has helped coordinate the annual Ride on the Wild Side, Zoo Ball and Zootastic. “It’s important to feel strongly and passionate about the causes you support,” she said. “If you’re giving of your time, your talent, your money and even asking other people to support those causes, it’s so important to have a connection and feel strongly about the mission.” Shannon spends a significant amount of her time giving back to organizations and causes that center mostly on preserving family, conservation, education and the support of young women in professional services. “Giving back has always been a big part of my family, and still is,” Shannon said. “My parents raised me to know that if people need help, you just help.” •

A friendly face and a helping hand BY ALYS H A S CH E RTZ, st a ff w rit e r

t’s Monday afternoon at General Mitchell International Airport. A new batch of military recruits has just arrived. This is their last few hours before reporting to basic training.

They are nervous, anxious and uncertain. Their lives are about to change forever. As if that pressure isn’t enough, they have to face the airport, an often crazy and hectic place, especially for 18 year olds, many of whom have never set foot in an airport, let alone been on a plane. Some will be there for only a few hours; others may spend the majority of the day there. They often just need a handshake, a joke or a friendly smile, and CARNEY Dan Carney, director of sales at Germantown-based PCC, and other volunteers for USO Wisconsin are there to be that friendly face. “Our job is to be there for them for whatever they need,” Carney said. “We help get them their boarding passes, get them through security and get them to the USO Center in Concourse D.” At the USO Center, recruits have an opportunity to call loved ones; enjoy drinks and snacks; watch movies or television; or play video games until they have to ship out, he said. USO Wisconsin is a nonprofit organization dedicated to serving active military personnel and their families. In 2015, the organization served more than 23,000 program participants and had more than 33,000 visits to its centers throughout the state. Each year, USO hosts or partners with other organizations to host the annual Father Daughter Dance, The Christmas Exodus, Camp Hometown Heroes and several military appreciation events throughout the year. USO events and its centers across Wisconsin exist to unify military families, and provide support and resources to active duty military personnel. Carney spends several afternoons a month at USO Wisconsin, and while he has no direct military ties, he feels a strong connection to the cause. “I’ve always had a deep respect for the military,” he said. “While I can’t offer advice on what these kids are about to go through, I can be there to listen, to laugh, to just talk to them and help any way that I can.”

CARNEY, CENTER, WITH MARINE RECRUITS AT THE USO CENTER AT GENERAL MITCHELL INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT.

USO Wisconsin serves more than 56,000 program participants each year. It has two full-time employees and relies heavily on the support of more than 145 volunteers, according to Josh Sova, executive director of USO Wisconsin. “We have an amazing team of volunteers,” he added. “We truly would not be able to function without the work that they do. Most do it to say thank you to the military service men and women, but the impact they have on these people is immense.”

CARNEY VOLUNTEERS REGULARLY WITH USO WISCONSIN.

Carney first got involved with the organization in 2014. “Given all they do, I just want to make sure they understand that I, the company I work for, and a large portion of the private sector is truly appreciative of the commitment they are making and the role they are looking to fulfill in the military,” Carney said. •

Supplying Wisconsin’s educators BY BE N STANLE Y, st a ff w rit e r

y Sept. 1, the new school year had already begun and Rachel Schlueter, a kindergarten teacher at Morgandale Elementary School on South 17th Street in Milwaukee, still had five unfilled requests posted on DonorsChoose.org. DonorsChoose.org is a crowdfunding website that gives people like school teachers an opportunity to raise money for certain projects or causes online. There were a few things Schlueter needed for the upcoming school year, but her school didn’t have the budget to buy: art materials for student projects, new mats for her class to rest on during nap time, supplies for sensory activities to help the kids develop and learn, and materials to teach them about making healthy food choices. It would’ve cost about $4,000 to buy all the materials on her own. In her 27 years teaching at Milwaukee Public Schools, Schlueter has frequently bought materials for her students – especially during times of budget cuts – but she couldn’t afford to shoulder the cost this time.

SCHLUETER’S STUDENTS WITH SUPPLIES PAID FOR THROUGH KOHL’S DONATION.

When she checked DonorsChoose in the first few days of September, she was disappointed to see not much progress had been made on her requests. But on the morning of Sept. 6, Schlueter awoke to a pleasant surprise – a donor had pledged to fill each one of her requests. “I was in shock,” she said. And she wasn’t the only one. That day, about 600 teachers around Wisconsin woke up to similar discoveries. By Oct. 3, every one of their nearly 700 requests had been filled. The reason: former Sen. Herb Kohl, a stalwart Milwaukee philanthropist with a soft spot for educational causes. Herb Kohl Philanthropies announced on Sept. 6 it would fill every single request posted on DonorsChoose.org by Wisconsin teachers before 12:01 a.m. on Sept. 6. Following the example of comedian Stephen Colbert and dozens of prominent philanthropists around the country who have taken to flash-funding requests for teachers and other people and causes in need, Kohl decided to spend $500,000 fulfilling teacher requests in Wisconsin. His donation provided a long list of materials that included health and hygiene items, pencils, paper, books, laptops, musical instruments and microscopes for 43,000 students around the state for the 2016-’17 school year. “What an incredible way to invest in our children,” Schlueter said. “All of our children deserve fair funding and they need the resources to learn and they deserve those resources regardless

of their zip code. For him to invest in our children and our public schools is just wonderful. “I almost don’t know how to thank him because it was so generous. It made me literally cry when I looked online that day and saw that he did that for a stranger, for our kids.” Kohl’s dedication to education programs and initiatives goes back for years. In 1990, Kohl established an educational foundation that awards scholarships and fellowships to students and teachers around Wisconsin. As of August 2016, the foundation had awarded nearly $12 million since it was established. “We are thrilled to support all of the classroom projects currently posted by teachers right here in Wisconsin,” Kohl said. “We owe a lot to our teachers and hold enormous hope for our students. They are both a constant source of inspiration.” •

Next generation philanthropists BY BEN STANLEY, st a ff w rit e r

A

s today’s young workers and entrepreneurs age into new roles of influence in the Milwaukee area and some of the city’s most committed and respected philanthropic leaders age out of theirs, a question emerges: Who will lead the next generation of donors in Milwaukee? Some younger individuals in the local business community are rolling up their sleeves for local causes.

THE WRIGHT BROTHERS Charlie Wright, 30, with the help of his younger brother, Andrew, 28, and his father, Charles, Sr., in 2011 started the Wright Brothers Fund through the Greater Milwaukee Foundation, which gives grants to organizations supporting environmental education initiatives. This year, the fund awarded grants to the Urban Ecology Center, a Hunger Task Force urban farming initiative and Rock the Green, an annual Milwaukee music festival held to raise awareness of environmental issues. Wright is the plant superintendent of Rheocast Co., a brass and aluminum die castings manufacturer in Germantown. It’s a division of Fall River Group, which his grandfather started in 1954. Fall River Group owns three subsidiaries: Rheocast, Fall River Manufacturing on Milwaukee’s south side and Fall River Foundry in Fall River. Though Wright didn’t know for certain whether he’d end up working at the family company, he said he was always fascinated by the foundry and manufacturing plants as a kid. After he graduated from Boston College in 2008, Wright moved back to Wisconsin to get acquainted with different aspects of the business and slowly began working his way through the ranks of the company. But even as he focused on building his career in manufacturing, he began to lay the roots of a separate philanthropic career. When he was attending high school in the early 2000s, Wright was inspired by his father’s and great uncle’s involvement with Goodwill Industries, and decided to start volunteering with the organization himself. “I reached out to my contacts in Milwaukee and said, ‘Hey, I’m out (near) Madison. Could you hook me up with somebody out here?’ So they put me in touch with their office out there,” Wright said. “It just so happened at that time, they were looking to bring on a young person onto their board of the Madison Goodwill. I thought I was going to just be volunteering on weekends and helping out at donation centers. That’s kind of what I envisioned, but I was presented with this great opportunity and I took it.”

CHARLIE WRIGHT

At the age of 22, Wright became a member of the Madison Goodwill’s board, where he learned how charitable organizations think strategically about their decisions and approach problems. After a few years, he and his father began discussing setting up a family foundation to support philanthropic initiatives. “We were doing some research on what it would take to do that; how do you set it up legally and what sort of administrative stuff you’ve got to do,” he said. “We reached out to the Greater Milwaukee Foundation with that very question. They help administer a foundation or a fund, but you don’t have to do any of the work, set up any of the administrative stuff. They’ve got it all set up, so you donate to them and they set up the fund and for a fee they run it for you. So that was very appealing at the time.” Though the three each pooled money to start the fund, both Andrew and Wright’s father have since moved away — Charles, Sr. is now retired and living in Florida, and Andrew is studying chiropractic medicine in Georgia. Now Wright is in charge of the fund, in addition to his roles on the board of Goodwill Industries of Southeastern Wisconsin and the Milwaukee Public Museum board of directors. It’s a lot of responsibility to juggle for a young manager building his career. But Wright said he feels it’s his obligation to get involved. “I’ve been provided with a lot of opportunities and I feel like I want to give back to the community that’s given me those opportunities,” Wright said.

INDIVIDUAL PROFILE

THE MUELLERS John and Patty Mueller, both 53, had been planning on establishing their own fund for years, ever since Patty started showing John the annual and quarterly statements from a charitable fund she advised that her father started years ago. “My father was one of a few employees or retirees that donated Journal Communications stock to create the Journal Foundation at the Greater Milwaukee Foundation,” Patty said. “What’s been really compelling is seeing his initial gift grow fourfold and his grants grow threefold. My husband would see that. I would show him the annual and quarterly statements and he would say, ‘You know, we should do something like that.’” Eventually, they did. The Muellers founded a company called Idea Factory Inc. in Menomonee Falls in 1994 after John developed a plug-in valve device that makes shower cleaning easier, called Rinse Ace Power Sprayer. Eventually the company, which had 10 employees when it was sold to New Jersey-based Ginsey Home Solutions in 2014, began making a variety of bath, shower, oral health care and dog washing products for retailers across the country. Now, two years after selling their company, the Muellers are retired. And over the past two years, in addition to becoming active

travelers, they’ve become active volunteers and philanthropists. “We both grew up in great families and had certain privileges,” Patty said. “We know how good we had it growing up, so giving back is important to us. It’s also a little bit steeped in faith, as well.” So far, they’ve identified three organizations of choice for the fund they established through the GMF: Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Milwaukee, The Humane Animal Welfare Society in Waukesha and St. John’s Military Academy in Delafield, where John attended high school.

Patty also volunteers at the Sojourner Family Peace Center, and each summer the couple gets involved with the Boys & Girls Clubs’ Camp Whitcomb Mason on the shores of Lake Keesus near the Town of Merton, northwest of Milwaukee. The Muellers live on Lake Keesus and help out each year by taking the kids tubing on the lake and volunteering at camp. “Disadvantaged youth, humane care for animals, education and domestic violence prevention – those are things that we are involved with,” Patty said. But in addition to getting involved to address specific issues in Milwaukee, Patty also sees it as her mission to recruit other small business owners or executives at large corporations in town to become philanthropists themselves. “Bigger picture, I believe there is a lot of wealth in small business owners, and I believe the GMF, or really any community foundation, needs to be able to tap more of the small business owners and let them know they exist,” Patty said. “All these small business owners can establish funds and create a bigger impact in our community. Together we can have a significant impact. There are a lot of challenges here in Milwaukee with our poverty and our education system. But there’s also plenty of quiet philanthropists in Milwaukee. I’m sure of it.” •

PROFESSIONAL ADVISOR PROFILE

Four pillars for financial success Building a sustainable nonprofit By: Craig A. Schmutzer - Senior Vice President, Park Bank

Park Bank actively supports many nonprofit organizations throughout southeastern Wisconsin. During my seventeen years with Park Bank, I have had the privilege of working with many of these organizations as a supporter, board member and banking partner. Through this work, I’ve noticed four consistent elements that all financially successful nonprofits share. I’m sharing these insights along with the thoughts of Matthias Schueth, executive vice president of the Rogers Memorial Hospital Foundation, and Christine Safranek, director of mission advancement with St. Marcus School in Milwaukee - two of the many organizations Park Bank works with that exemplify what it takes to be financially sustainable while continuing to grow.

Everything starts with strong governance An engaged board of directors working in partnership with the executive director is vital to an organization’s success. In Schueth’s experience, engaged board members who understand the nonprofit’s mission can make a big difference in an organization’s longevity. “A supportive board of directors is key especially for Rogers since we are dealing with mental health, an area that has a stigma attached to it,” he says. “Our board members need to be passionate, be able to explain what the foundation does and feel comfortable inviting business colleagues and friends to our events.” Board members should also represent a variety of backgrounds and disciplines to provide the executive director with resources to tap, including business acumen, financial support and broader connections in the community.

SPONSORED REPORT

can offer from our experience with Rogers and St. Marcus:

Development is a daily process Fund development is more than annual appeals or events, it is something that needs to be done daily according to Schueth. “It’s about developing relationships with people who can help the organization with its needs.” He adds, “putting together a plan with a variety of funding sources is a must for nonprofit organizations.” Safranek believes that building long-term relationships with donors is essential. She’s been with the school for 15 years and firmly believes it is important for donors to realize “we’re going to do what we say we’re going to do and be good stewards of donated funds.” While the school does have annual fundraisers and events, Safranek believes it is vital to cultivate one-on-one relationships with the people and foundations who donate throughout the year.

Find a strong financial partner for a capital campaign

• plan on having 80 percent of the cost raised and/or pledged prior to proceeding with construction or property acquisition, and • major gifts are usually funded over time and add to your borrowing costs during the project.

Think long term Successful leaders of nonprofit organizations always think to the future. One way Safranek does this is by sharing St. Marcus’ story with everyone – not just someone currently in the financial position to make a donation. “Don’t limit your dream to people who have wealth today. We share our story with volunteers and families so when they are in a position to be able to give that they will think of us,” she says. “We really believe in donorfocused philanthropy and that the gift is not just meeting the needs of the nonprofit and those we serve, but the donors themselves.”

A good banking partner acts as your advocate and guide whether you have borrowing needs or are looking to grow through a capital campaign. Your banker will look for a disciplined approach to cost budgeting, preparation of financial statements, and execution of a fundraising plan.

As Safranek cultivates relationships with donors, planned giving and estate planning does come up, but they expect that. “Our donors want us to be fiscally responsible and planning for the future and the school’s longevity is part of that,” she explains. “It shows how we are fulfilling that responsibility.”

When Park Bank considers lending to a nonprofit organization we look at several factors, including the capital campaign plan, the commitment of board members, engagement of the executive director and development director, and what percentage of the total project amount has been raised or pledged prior to its inception. Two pointers we

At Park Bank, we are proud of the support and resources we can provide nonprofit organizations to help them grow as they meet their community’s needs.

For an HIV patient to achieve undetectable status is to achieve the gold standard in HIV health care. While there still is no cure for HIV in the fourth decade of AIDS, being undetectable means that you are living the healthiest you can be and still have HIV/AIDS. At ARCW 89% of our patients are undetectable despite the fact that the vast majority of ARCW patients live in poverty. Philanthropy is contributing to these positive outcomes.

Over the past 12 years ARCW philanthropy revenue has grown 44%. ARCW has posted year over year philanthropic growth for the past four years, including more than $1.1 million raised in 2016 just from individual donors, contributing to a record $3.3 million raised in 2016. With ninety-four cents of every dollar of revenue benefiting patients and clients, our donors are making a direct investment in HIV health care. Aside from individual donors, ARCW is working with a growing cadre of corporations and foundations who similarly are investing in HIV health care innovation that ultimately benefits our patients.

FUNDRAISING/EVENTS

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 and Bowling for BRPF. 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.

GOALS

FUNDRAISING/EVENTS

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 children’s 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 they do need medical care, we offer a singular, dedicated focus on kids 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.

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.

We also work to support patients through education programs, support services, advocacy, quality of care initiatives, and a clinical trials community. CCFA also hosts a week-long overnight camp just for youth with IBD; Camp Oasis Wisconsin takes place in Elkhorn every August.

Essential to CCFA’s mission, our ongoing fundraising efforts enable us to fund further research, as well as educational and patient support activities. We encourage teams and individuals to participate in Take Steps walks in Milwaukee, Madison, Green Bay, and Wausau each year. Our next Milwaukee walk at South Shore Park will be Sunday, June 4, 2017.

GOALS

FUNDRAISING/EVENTS

Our goal is to end human trafficking, specifically, child sex trafficking in the Greater Milwaukee region. We join local, state, national, and global efforts to address this growing issue where over 20 million people are trapped in modern day slavery across the world. The Milwaukee region is known as a trafficking hub, similar to a slave route. A major need in changing this narrative is housing. We are working to open a safe home in 2017 where minors can receive the freedom, love, care, and hope they need to restore their innocent lives.

The financial weight of starting and operating a safe home for minors is massive. We want to collaborate with individuals, corporations, and foundations that want to fight against human trafficking and end the sexual exploitation of children in the Greater Milwaukee region. Currently, we have an annual run in May and a golf outing held in August. We are actively growing our number of fundraising events as we increase corporate and large donor partnerships.

GOALS

FUNDRAISING/EVENTS

Feeding America Eastern Wisconsin’s mission is to solve hunger. It’s a bold goal that will take all of us working together to address the root causes that lead to hunger. Our focus is on the four pillars of household stability: Food, Health, Housing, and Employment. Together with our members, we provide nearly 20 million meals annually to nearly 400,000 people, 124,000 of whom are children.

Our community comes together during our Food for the Holidays campaign (November/December) to raise a million meals for those in need at a time of year when many are forced to choose between heating their homes or buying food. Our Healthy Kids, Healthy Summer campaign (June/ July) raises critical funding to ensure our children stay wellnourished during those critical summer months when families lose access to school-based meal programs. Our signature event – the Grateful Plate Gala – in early June serves as the official kick-off for the campaign and is another opportunity for people to come together to solve hunger.

FUNDING SOURCES

GOALS

FUNDRAISING/EVENTS

Hospice Alliance was founded 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 the loved ones who support them, to live every day to the fullest, regardless of the ability to pay.

An Evening of Wishes is Hospice Alliance’s signature fundraiser. The annual event, along with our annual appeal solicitation, raises funds to cover the deficit resulting from uncompensated health care, as well as the operation of our Hospice House - residential care facility.

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.

Additionally, each month Hospice Alliance hosts “Dining for Donations,” teaming up with a local restaurant for supporters to enjoy. In turn, the eatery donates a portion of its sales to benefit our patients and families.

We are a community leader in education and grief support, providing information and bereavement services regardless of having a loved one in our care. GIVING OPPORTUNITIES

Nearly 130 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. 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 Alliance’s Evening of Wishes annual event offers sponsorship and in-kind donation opportunities. To discuss supporting Hospice Alliance, please contact 262.652.4400.

We are also fully committed to developing three campus locations that support year-round education.

Messmer holds an annual golf outing for alumni and friends. We also host our annual Portraits in Leadership gala that recognizes leaders in our community who have a connection to one of our three Messmer schools. Funds raised from our special events and direct appeals are used to help close the nearly $3,000 Choice voucher gap per high school student and the $500 gap per grade school student.

In addition, there are opportunities to work with students in various STEM-related courses and specifically, in our Building2Learn Consortium, a two-year old applications-based initiative that enables students to develop the skills needed to construct wooden rowboats while working in teams from several different schools.

Messmer must raise $1.6 million to balance its operating budget each year. In addition, we are fundraising for capital gifts and pledges that include projects at all three campuses, the most significant of which is a $6.5 million renovation of our Messmer/St. Rose Elementary School site in the Merrill Park neighborhood on Milwaukee’s near west side.

FUNDRAISING/EVENTS

Our goal is to help people improve in function so they can be as independent as possible. We recognize each person as an individual and are particularly expert in assisting children and adults with special needs and disabilities. Care plans are developed using evidence-based practices and include measurable outcomes. The measure of success is the enhanced ability of each person to live better and become more independent.

MCFI hosts its signature fundraising event in support of MCFI Children’s Center programming each fall. Fundraisers throughout the year include a casino night, indoor racing event, client art fundraiser, and young professionals’ holiday pub event. Sponsors are welcome for all events, as are auction items.

GOALS

FUNDRAISING/EVENTS

MKE Plays represents a new approach to the administration of public spaces in Milwaukee. We tackle the dual challenge of limited public funding and underutilization by mobilizing community residents, organizational partners, and elected representatives in the design, construction, maintenance, and programming of local parks. In doing so, we help build creative, high-quality, functional spaces that inspire youth for a more enriching play experience.

The MKE Plays initiative incorporates both public and private funding sources to accelerate the pace of reconstruction and allow for more innovative designs. The cost for the fourteen parks selected for reconstruction over the next three years is estimated at $2,224,000. This number represents a 40% increase over traditional reconstruction estimates to allow for creative, high-quality construction. With commitments from several local philanthropic organizations, individual donors, and the City of Milwaukee we have met our initial fundraising goal for the first 14 parks, and now look to expand the MKE Plays program to include all of the 62 parks maintained by the City of Milwaukee.

VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES

GIVING OPPORTUNITIES

Resident volunteers are welcome to participate in community meetings and workshops throughout the design process. Additionally, each park project includes some kind of service event which may include assembly of playground equipment, installation of resilient mulch surfacing, and landscaping clean-up. Residents and partners of all ages (especially kids!) are encouraged to take part throughout the project.

Contributions made to MKE Plays go toward park capital improvements, recreational programming, and youth-worker wages. To donate, please contact Program Coordinator, Joseph Kaltenberg, at mkeplays@milwaukee.gov or 414-286-8532.

FUNDRAISING/EVENTS

Serving at-risk Milwaukee area elementary students since 1996, over 80,000 students have been impacted by the SHARP program. For the 2016-17 school year, SHARP is expanding into Waukesha County and is reaching over 8,000 students in 36 Milwaukee and Waukesha schools.

The annual A Novel Event held in fall every year is SHARP’s cornerstone fundraising event, efforts to garner funds to benefit the thousands of students in the SHARP program continue year-round. Through civic and charitable organizations, SHARP raises much needed funding. SHARP also seeks grants and awards to fund its program. By placing We Love to Learn books, workbooks, and other learning resources into the hands of Milwaukee and Waukesha County students from high poverty areas, SHARP reaches the diverse academic needs of deserving students.

Students also take a pre- and post- program vocabulary assessment each year; on average, SHARP students make a 35% annual gain of correctly identifying and using “challenge” words. Results show that SHARP students, on average, performed 2.5 times better than their non-SHARP peers on the post assessment.

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; 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 and art supplies 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.
