Thanks for your BIG generosity during The Big Share

Mar 9, 2022 | Misc, Uncategorized

Can you believe how many people chipped in for The Big Share? Donors supported River Alliance of Wisconsin to the tune of over $18,000! Your collective support blew us away.

Lots of great things happened during The Big Share. Mel Vollbrecht and Allison Werner’s fundraising pages surpassed their goals. Communications Director Stacy Harbaugh emceed The Big Share Live’s livestream and showed River Alliance’s Wisconsin Water Agenda videos. And Clear Water Farms Program Director Mike Tiboris showed off his banjo playing skills in a live performance with his musician friends, Old Gray Cats. 

The Big Share is a pretty big deal. It’s a day when 70 nonprofit members of Community Shares of Wisconsin come together to raise money and celebrate our work. Community Shares recently celebrated its 50th anniversary. Today Community Shares of Wisconsin is a fundraising powerhouse that runs workplace giving programs for private and government employees, the longstanding CHIP donation program at Willy Street Co-op, and Community Round UP at Capitol Centre Market. 

In its ninth year, The Big Share is a day of community generosity that pours through a digital hub for donations. Community Shares of Wisconsin member groups, together, raised nearly $650,000 in support of their work for social and environmental justice. 

River Alliance of Wisconsin is deeply grateful for everyone who gave during The Big Share, who pooled their funds together to match donations on March 1, and for those who kept giving last week and helped us top $18,000.
