BizTimes Media is pleased to present our 12th annual Giving Guide. Our intent once again is to connect our readers, many of them business owners and leaders, with the nonprofit community. We also aim to provide you with information and tangible ideas that inspire you to invest in our community by giving your time, talent and treasure – personally and/or with your employees. 

The past 20-plus months have challenged many of our region’s wonderful nonprofits and the people they serve. As the need in the community continues to grow, so does the need for all of us to get involved and make a difference. 

We hope you find the content on the following pages inspiring. On page 2, you’ll find the stories of nonprofits exposing young people in our community to job and career opportunities in a variety of industries, and on page 4 you’ll read about organizations jumping into action to help Afghan refugees. 

This year’s edition is also truly a guide to giving with stories about how to become a more educated donor (page 6), how to get involved in board service (page 12), and best practices in corporate giving and volunteering (page 16). In between these articles you will find first-person stories from community leaders describing why they give and why they serve. 

Starting on page 18, 56 area nonprofits are profiled in detail. You will learn about their mission, ways to give and volunteer opportunities. New this year, on pages 9 – 11, you’ll find a wish list from the featured nonprofits. Following the profiles, beginning on page 130, you’ll find hundreds of additional nonprofit organizations listed, providing you with additional ways to get involved.

BizTimes Media is the only family- and locally owned business media company in the region, and we have a vested interest in the success and vibrancy in our community. We continue our commitment to highlighting the nonprofit community and connecting it with the business community. In addition to this annual Giving Guide, we publish the Nonprofit Weekly e-newsletter, produce the annual Nonprofit Excellence Awards program, have regular nonprofit coverage in BizTimes Milwaukee and offer a free nonprofit directory on biztimes.com to any interested nonprofit.

Thanks to all of the nonprofits who made a commitment to be part of this year’s Giving Guide, and thank you to the companies and individuals who provided underwriting support for some of the organizations.

Year-round digital edition access to this 2022 Giving Guide is also available at biztimes.com/giving.

If you missed being part of the Giving Guide or are looking to support your favorite nonprofit organization in next year’s edition, please send us an email at dan.meyer@biztimes.com or kate.meyer@biztimes.com.

The end of the year is a time when many will traditionally make donation decisions or think about 2022 and how to get involved by volunteering or serving on a nonprofit committee or board. This unique publication concept of a Giving Guide can be helpful to you as you, your family and your company plan your own ways to invest in our community and give back.
