Support local nonprofits with Community Shares and win
Community Shares of Greater Milwaukee is a membership organization, passionately committed to raising money for its non-profit members. Their key values are to respect donors' giving choices, make giving and receiving simple and meaningful, and support local non-profits that focus on three areas: social justice, animal welfare and the environment; these are areas the group believes are often underfunded.
Community Shares works together with workplaces to allow employees to make regular donations to non-profits through payroll deductions.
According to its website, "these campaigns help people act on their good intentions ... individuals give an average of five times more through workplace giving than they do when they write checks directly to an organization."
Currently Community Shares is in the midst of its fall fundraising campaign. During the fall campaign any new donors that pledge $25 or more to one of the many non-profit partners is eligible to win one of several great prizes. Any existing donors must increase their previous donation by $25 in order to be eligible.
Pledges must be received by Community Shares no later than Dec. 13, to be entered into the drawing. For further questions you can contact the membership and operations manager, Summer Barton-Taylor at (414) 223-0106.
