United Way Designations
The Christ Child Society Milwaukee Chapter has been approved as a write-in agency by the United Way of Greater Milwaukee through their Donor Choice Program.
We are not a United Way member agency and only designated funds will be forwarded to our organization. We encourage members and friends to consider the Christ Child Society Milwaukee Chapter the next time you donate to United Way.
Simply “write-in” our name and the amount you wish to be designated to the Christ Child Society. Thank you for your consideration.
For charitable organizations and individual donors alike, matching gift programs are an excellent means of maximizing the benefit of charitable giving. For employees, finding such information is often as simple as contacting the human resources department.
Many companies offer matching gift programs to encourage employees to contribute to charitable organizations. Most of these programs match contributions dollar for dollar, and some will even double or triple the amount of your gift!
If you are interested in providing a matching gift to the Christ Child Society, but need some assistance, please contact Director of Fundraising at 414-476-0118 who will gladly assist you in the endeavor.
