Our 2018 Gala Sponsors

SWCAP works to eliminate the causes and conditions of poverty. Each year, our gala raises funds for a specific anti-poverty service and honors those who help us carry out our anti-poverty mission.

The People Helping People Gala is attended by positive, passionate and motivated people who want to help SWCAP address the issues of poverty in SW Wisconsin.  We honor those who help us carry out our anti-poverty mission.  We celebrate our successes.  And, we enjoy a fun and purposeful evening of music and food, while raising critical funds for a specific anti-poverty cause.

The Gala Promotes Our Anti-Poverty Mission.

Each year, we honor individuals and businesses who make a difference in the lives of those who struggle with poverty.   This year, our awards are in two categories, Community Partner and Community Champion.

The Gala Honors Anti-Poverty Change-Makers.

For 2018, our Gala fundraising will focus on the need for recovery housing in our rural area.  Too many people are struggling with addiction and have nowhere to turn for stable, substance-free housing after treatment and during recovery.  Our gala fundraising goal is $50,000 to help establish two Oxford-model Recovery Homes to help individuals remain substance-free.
