Friends of the Foundation

Our Friends of the Foundation are companies who significantly invest in the Crohn's & Colitis Foundation - Wisconsin Chapter. If your company is interested in becoming a Friend of the Foundation, please contact Leslie.

Take Steps Walk Committees 

Our Take Steps fundraising walks are in MilwaukeeMadison, and Green Bay, and we have a planning committee for each walk. We are looking for assistance in planning, finding sponsors and securing in-kind donations, encouraging team involvement, and helping on the day of the walk. Committees start meeting monthly in advance of the walk.  

 

Support Group Facilitator 

We are looking for volunteers to lead our in-person support groups throughout the state. Facilitators establish frequency and time of meetings, and assist in selecting the meeting site, advertising the meetings and recruiting participants. Facilitators lead group discussions and invite guest speakers on topics of interest. They provide education and create an open forum for group discussion and encourage, impact and explain often difficult topics in an approachable way. When possible, support groups facilitators should attend Foundation-sponsored training conferences, which are designed to enhance knowledge of medical and psychosocial issues in Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis.   

 

Leadership Board 

Board members are asked to support the organization in many ways including financially, by supporting various Chapter events (Take Steps, special events, etc.), and helping advance the mission of the Foundation by increasing awareness, building relationships, and increasing volunteer engagement. Board members should serve on at least one committee. There are typically five board meetings per year, held in the evening.  

 

Special Events Committee 

We are looking for assistance on a special event committee. In addition to planning and developing ideas for events, we’d like assistance finding and soliciting sponsors, as well as office assistance the days/weeks leading up to the event and help on the night of the event.
