JOIN OUR FAMILY OF DONORS!
The Wilson Center is home for the arts in Waukesha County, metro-Milwaukee, and beyond. From performances and festivals to classes and exhibits, patrons and students of all ages experience the arts and learn year-round in one of the finest multi-disciplinary cultural arts centers in the United States. We serve more than 45,000 people annually, including 9,000 children, pre-Kindergarten through 12th grade!
We’ve accomplished so much together since opening our doors in 2002, and more excitement is on the way! However, ticket sales, class registrations, and venue rentals only cover a portion of our annual operations. Sixty percent of our funding must be raised each year. We rely on the generosity of our family of donors to help close the gap and change lives in our community, and we are so grateful for your support!
THE RESULTS ARE IN ON OUR "JOIN OUR FAMILY" GIVING CHALLENGE!
Thanks to the generosity of the many first-time donors who took the "Join Our Family" Giving Challenge this summer, we not only met our $70,000 goal ... we exceeded it.
We are thrilled to announce that we have raised $72,100!
A tremendous thank you to our Leadership Challenge Donors J.B. Burke, Jim Caraway, Marty Frank (in memoriam), Ron Kujawa, George Mosher, Carl Strohmaier, and Donald Wilson for matching all first-time contributions to the Wilson Center, up to $35,000.
Did you miss your chance to take the giving challenge? Make a donation today and you can still enjoy many new donor benefits throughout our 15th Anniversary Season!
