BizTimes Milwaukee announces the launch of its “Giving Guide, Regional Philanthropic Opportunities,” a new print and digital publication to showcase nonprofit organizations seeking support from the business community.
The glossy, four-color magazine will be published and distributed with the Oct. 29 issue of BizTimes Milwaukee. It will also be available online in a digital page-turn format.
In addition to featuring sponsored content from nonprofit organizations throughout southeastern Wisconsin, the Giving Guide also will feature a condensed version of the online BizTimes Nonprofit Directory and will highlight individuals and corporations who donate their time, talent or treasure to the nonprofit community in southeastern Wisconsin.
The Giving Guide is the latest addition to BizTimes Media LLC’s commitment to the region’s nonprofit community. The company also produces the BizTimes Nonprofit Directory, the BizTimes Nonprofit Weekly e-newsletter and the BizTimes Nonprofit Spotlight in the bi-weekly magazine. In addition, the company features nonprofits’ charitable outings throughout the year in BizTimes Around Town and is the media sponsor for the Association of Fundraising Professionals (AFP) Partners in Philanthropy Luncheon.
“The nonprofit industry is an important sector of our local economy,” said Dan Meyer, publisher of BizTimes Milwaukee. “So many of our readers are not only impacted by the nonprofit industry, but they also serve on the boards of charities and make positive contributions to the quality of life here. This guide will be a great resource for the nonprofits, as well as business people who are looking for ways to serve.”
BizTimes is asking local nonprofit organizations to nominate people who have given back to the community with their time, talent or treasure. Those people will be featured in the Giving Guide. Send those nominations, along with a note about how they contribute, to Alysha.Schertz@biztimes.com
Nonprofits seeking a high profile in the Giving Guide are encouraged to provide sponsored content. Sponsored space includes a year-long, two page spread in the print and online edition of the Giving Guide, logo recognition in Giving Guide promotional ads, 10,000 impressions at BizTimes.com, a text link and an ad in an issue of the BizTimes Nonprofit Weekly, as well as logo placement next to the organization listing in the BizTimes Nonprofit Directory.
“The Giving Guide will be a year-long ‘value play’ for our participating nonprofit organizations,” said Tom Gaertner, BizTimes Media vice president of sales. “It’s all about putting the right message in front of business owners and decision makers who can truly make a difference in our community.”
