The Make-A-Wish® Wisconsin Young Wishmakers of Wisconsin (YWOW) is comprised of young professionals with diverse professional backgrounds and personal interests who are passionate about being active and philanthropic members of their community and desire to further support the mission of Make-A-Wish Wisconsin by making a difference in the lives of children. YWOW members will serve as ambassadors, advocates and resources for its staff.
All YWOW members are responsible for outreach, community awareness and fundraising. Members will participate in quarterly meetings with opportunities for socials intermittently. Some YWOW members may be asked to serve as representatives of Make-A-Wish at events. YWOW members are asked to participate in 1-2 existing fundraisers per year and will be encouraged to secure new revenue for wishes outside of these events through workplace giving initiatives, corporate or foundation dollars and individual gifts. Members are encouraged to explore leadership opportunities and join at least one internal committee: Membership & Networking; Development; or Communications.
