BECOME A MEMBER - OF COMMUNITY SHARES OF WISCONSIN
Maybe it's just us…but it seems as if the role of
non-profits - if not their image - has changed in
the last ten years.
Non-profits, and those organizations that support
them, have become more than just service providers.
They have become major employers, more business-like
in their operations, more entrepreneurial.
And that is a good thing.
Because they've also become more efficient and more
Community Shares of Wisconsin is a great example.
Like the United Way, by which they are often over-shadowed,
Community Shares helps build community by raising
funds and offering technical and other types of assistance
They then contribute to the community's economic strength
as well as its social values.
The reason we tell you this is Community Shares of
Wisconsin is soliciting new member groups, and that
doesn't happen very often.
Community Shares has 60 members currently, but it
is adding new groups that meet the criteria of 501c3
nonprofit status and a demonstrated commitment to
advancing social change, challenging injustices and
raising community awareness.
The deadline to apply is August 1 and applications
are available at communityshares.com.
We support Community Shares, and thought you might
like know about this opportunity.
