The Heart of Wisconsin Chamber of Commerce will be hosting a Chamber Charity Drive to help support local non-profit organizations that continue to support the local community.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, many non-profit organizations continued to support the local community. Many of these organizations are not included in available relief funds or grants.
The Chamber Charity Drive is a Tip Jar that businesses and community members can donate to a charity. Each week of November and December (until the 28th) the Chamber will have a featured non-profit that will receive the donations.
How does the Charity Drive work?
The community can go to a participating location and drop off donations. The Chamber will kick off the week on Tip Jar Tuesday and take donations for the featured non-profit organization through the workday on the following Monday.
Businesses can request to be a tip jar location where the community can drop off donations. Businesses can fill out the registration form or register online to be featured on social media. At the end of the week, businesses will drop off the funds to the Heart of Wisconsin office where they will collect all donations. Funds will be given to the non-profit. Businesses provide their own Tip Jars that can be decorated.
Businesses can also take ownership in the drive and be a Charity Sponsor. A Charity Sponsor donates $20 to the featured non-profit. Logos will be featured on social media and the event page. To be a Charity Sponsor business please register at the link above.
All donations must be cash or checks written to the featured non-profit. Payment must be received within 48 hours of commitment to the Chamber.
The list of charities receiving donations will be released on November 1st.
