Your tax-deductible gift to Local First Milwaukee works for a thriving local economy for us all. You already recognize the impact of thinking local: when we support our local businesses by spending our dollars on local products, dining and services, we lay the groundwork for a thriving local economy: more jobs, less environmental impact, better service and selection and more community engagement. But do your friends, neighbors and co-workers understand this concept?

Your tax-deductible gift to Local First Milwaukee will:

  • Ramp up our public education on the powerful effect of even a slight shift in household spending.
  • Promote the local businesses who are the fabric of our community and tell the local story more effectively.
  • Change how dollars are spent here in southeastern Wisconsin, impacting all of us.
  • Affirm your values and confirm your commitment to a better Milwaukee.

In 2014, our members and community contributed over $10,000 to help support Local First Milwaukee’s mission. Our goal for 2015 is to raise a total of $35,000. We have budgeted $15,000 to update our website with more resources for the community and our members, and the additional $20,000 will be used to advocate for local spending throughout Milwaukee, Ozaukee, Washington, Waukesha, and Racine Counties.
