Profiles in Philanthropy

Giving Guide 2016


As regional nonprofit organizations continue driving missions to improve everything from education to housing to the performing arts, their success is largely propelled by the support of the business community.

That support takes many shapes. Some companies choose to give back through workplace campaigns that pool dollars from employees at all levels. Other business leaders and staff opt to bolster a nonprofit’s efforts by dedicating time and talent to its operations and programs. Other business executives still center their giving on board governance and oversight, lending their business acumen to the business needs of an organization.

BizTimes Media devotes a segment of its weekly coverage to the ties between companies and nonprofits throughout southeastern Wisconsin. Within the 2016 Giving Guide, BizTimes has woven together a collection of profiles shining a light on the time, talent and treasure donated by area business leaders, employees and companies as a whole. Each profile demonstrates the kind of impact that can be made when for-profit and nonprofit sectors collaborate with a common goal.

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.
