Become a Hero

Community Advocates Milwaukee Wisconsin

We call you a “Hero” if you sign up to give automatic monthly gifts, because you are providing a solid foundation for our clients – who desperately need just that.

Automatic monthly gifts provide a reliable source of flexible funding that can be used to help our clients and their constantly evolving, unique needs.

Much of the funding Community Advocates receives has restrictions on how and when it can be spent – which leaves us without the ability to meet our clients’ needs whenever and however they present themselves.

Your automatic monthly gifts provide us with a reliable source of unrestricted funding. What does that mean?  It means that you are coming to the rescue where help is most needed.

In short, it means you are a Hero.


Why Should You Become a Hero Today?

  • Save Resources: Monthly giving is paperless and automatic. The entire donation process is simplified for both you and our staff, meaning resources are saved and more of your donation goes straight to the clients.
  • Save Time:  Automatic monthly giving requires no effort from you after you initially fill out the paperwork.  Once you've signed up, donations are automatically charged to your credit card or deducted from your checking account every month. 
  • Easier Budgeting: A regular gift every month makes it much easier for you to budget your charitable giving for the year.
  • Not only is it convenient, easy, and secure but you will be a Hero!

As a Hero, you will receive annual statements of your donations for tax purposes, and you are free to change or suspend your donation at any time.

Your financial donations are fully tax deductible in accordance with IRS regulations. Community Advocates and its Milwaukee Women's Center division are registered not-for-profit organizations in the state of Wisconsin. Thank You!


Automatic Checking Withdrawal 

To begin making automatic donations from  your checking account to Community Advocates or the Milwaukee Women's Center, contact Development Director Kris Uhen at 414-405-6054 or email her anytime. 

You'll be a Hero when you provide steady support to our clients. 


Credit Card

You have two options with this method:

1)  Go to our online donation page here, click the blue "Donate" button, and then check the "Donate Monthly" box. You'll then be able to select how much you want to give each month. Select from one of our standard amounts, or click on "Custom" to select another amount that's best for you. Then click on "Continue" to provide your billing information.

2)  Call Community Advocates’ Development Director Kris Uhen at 414-405-6054 to provide your credit card number, expiration date, three-digit code, and monthly donation amount.

Credit card charges will appear on your credit card statement the following month, and you will become a Hero!
