Like most not-for-profits, WisconSibs must rely on the generosity of volunteers, and individual and corporate donors to carry out its mission. In fact, nearly 70% of the funds needed to make sibling programs possible come from our fundraising events.
But our events are not just about the money. We go to great lengths to create fun experiences that reinforce our mission of connecting people with each other and with resources to help their families.
Here are a couple examples:
This annual luncheon and silent auction/raffle celebrates “purse-onality”, increases awareness, and provides lots of fun for the 325+ guests. It has raised over $250,000 since 2006. Due to COVID, we had to cancel Celebrate Sisterhood for 2020. Out next Celebration Sisterhood will be Oct. 19, 2021.
To replace the funds from Celebrate Sisterhood, we are premieried an online presentation on November 17 at 6 pm called Sibling Voices: Stories of Hope. It introduced several of our WisconSibs who have siblings with disabilities and participate in our programs along with sibling 3-time Emmy award nominated journalist Allison Norlian.
