2018 Partner Charity App

In addition to donating our time to several important non-profit organizations in Sheboygan County, we are proud to host an annual fundraising gala each year (2018 date is 11/10/18).  Proceeds from this gala are distributed to both our Partner Charity as well several other organizations through our General Funding application process.  We select recipients of these funds that align with our mission to support the social, economic, educational, cultural, and civic conditions of Sheboygan County. Our Partner Charity is typically an organization seeking a sizable donation ($10K+) and one who is willing to assist in selling raffle tickets, corporate tables, and auction items to be bid on the night of the event.

In return, we enthusiastically share half of the net proceeds from the gala with our Partner Charity.  The remaining half of our net proceeds are distributed to a handful of other local organizations or projects.

Our 2017 Partner Charity was the Family Resource Center of Sheboygan County!

 

Sheboygan Service Club supports anyone in need of compassion, shelter, nourishment or education within Sheboygan County.

Sheboygan Service Club Press Release

The Sheboygan Service Club was pleased to present a check for $62,513.55 to the Family Resource Center of Sheboygan County on January 11, 2018. Family Resource Center offers their thank to SSC, and to the community, for their generosity and support.  The Family Resource Center said of SSC that “Their willingness to give shows how much our community values our mission of ‘building strong families and strong communities.’”  Jaime Marchi, current President of Sheboygan Service Club shares that “it is always such a rewarding experience to give that check to our partner charity.  We work so hard to make our fundraiser a success, and to see the joy on their faces when they receive the money makes it all worth it!”

In addition to volunteering within the community, SSC members host one major fundraiser each year known as the Annual Charity Ball. In the past, the Sheboygan Service Club, Inc. and its Foundation have shared the proceeds from its Charity Ball with 25-50 local non-profits annually. The Sheboygan Service Club and its Foundation support anyone in need of compassion, shelter, nourishment or education within Sheboygan County. In an effort to make a larger impact in some of the local organizations and projects we support, the Sheboygan Service Club and its Foundation has for the last seven years designated half of its Charity Ball net proceeds to support one top organization or project each year; while providing the remaining half of our net proceeds to a handful of other local organizations or project and scholarships.   SSC is now accepting applications for our 2018 Partner Charity and invites all Sheboygan County 501(c)3 to submit an application to be this year’s Partner. Applications and all supporting documents must be received by March 31st. Visit http://www.sheboyganserviceclub.org/charity-ball-fundraiser  to retrieve a copy of the application.

2017’s annual charity ball was held on Nov. 11 at The Berkshire with over 200 people in attendance. More than $140,000 was raised that evening, one half of which was presented to a single organization, the Family Resource Center of Sheboygan County, with the remainder distributed to other area charities, projects or scholarships.  Sheboygan Service Club provided $10,000 each to both Mental Health America and Rainbow Kids of Sheboygan County.  In addition, financial support was provided to the YMCA, Project Linus, Sheboygan Cancer Fund and Easter Seals.  SSC President, Jaime Marchi says that “We truly hope that the money we raise makes a difference to the local charities we support.  We are blessed to have these organizations in our community, and Sheboygan Service Club looks forward to working with them in the future.”

The theme of this year’s show was Welcome to La La Land, where the crowd was entertained with skits from an assortment of movies and shows from the early 1900s.  The SSC was founded by Edith Testwuide in 1931 as a way to address the many needs of the community during the Great Depression.

The 2018 Charity Ball will be held on Saturday, November 10th, 2018 at the American Club.  In addition to hosting an annual Charity Ball, SSC also offers area high school seniors the opportunity to apply for one of three $1500 scholarships awarded each year.  And in the summer, SSC invites children entering kindergarten to learn the all about keeping safe at Safety Town.  More information about these and other SSC initiatives can be found online atwww.sheboyganserviceclub.org or find us on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/SheboyganServiceClub

What is our Giving Strategy?

In 2015, the ladies of SSCrevolutionized the way we share our proceeds from the annual gala.  The goal was to make a larger impact on fewer organizations.  We still select a partner charity which will receive half the show proceeds however, we also have two additional tiers of giving that organizations can apply for based on need.  Tier 2 (requests up to $10K) and tier 3 ( requests up to $1,500).  Each member of SSC is given the opportunity to review and vote on every application for funds.  This has allowed SSC to help multiple organizations each year reach their goals of serving our community together.

85th Sheboygan Service Club Anniversary Endowment Campaign

Lifetime members generously supported Sheboygan Service Club, Sheboygan Service Foundation, and The Endowment Fund in 2017 during the 85th SSCAnniversary Endowment Campaign. Together, we raised $9,652.85 for The Endowment Fund. With this successful campaign, we are closer to realizing the goal of using earned income from The Endowment Fund to support our scholarship program. This will allow for more funds from the Charity Ball Fundraiser to be distributed to non-profit organizations doing great work throughout our community. Sheboygan Service Club continues to have a proud history rooted in the belief that a group of women can give powerful witness to charting and social justice.

Thank you to the Endowment Advisory Committee (Barbara Gruber, Tippy Jung, Lisa Liebl, Nancy Schreiber) for leading the campaign and thier continued support and and guidance.

We are proud to announce our 2017 Partner Charity – The Family Resource Center of Sheboygan County.

The Family Resource Center of Sheboygan County is a non-profit organization which originated in 1991. The FRC provides support to parents in their role as the first and most influential teachers of their children and to professionals in order to increase the quality of services available to families in Sheboygan County.

SSC is excited to partner with The Family Resource Center and raise funds that will support a program called Parents as Teachers.

“Parents as Teachers promotes the optimal early development, learning and health of young children by supporting and engaging their parents and caregivers.”

SSC believes a healthy community starts with a healthy home.  The Family Resource Center shares this belief and exists for the purpose of educating, supporting, and strengthening the families of Sheboygan county.
