Fundraisers and Events 

GiGi’s Playhouse hosts various fundraisers throughout the year such as the GiGiFIT Acceptance Challenge, Brew HaHa, and more. These events help us to raise awareness about Down syndrome and promote acceptance and individual success. When you become a sponsor, you are investing in academic and therapeutic programming which increases consistent participation and achievement. Think about the pride you'll feel in helping individuals with Down syndrome; your belief and generosity can create so many opportunities for achievement! Because of investors like you, the future will be brighter and more hopeful. More individuals will learn to read, do math, create art, stay healthy, develop career skills, and live truly beautiful lives. More families will celebrate their child's abilities. More communities will embrace individuals with Down syndrome as equals and friends. These miracles begin at GiGi's Playhouse, as we are stronger together. Thank you for your consideration, and for believing in our individuals!

In-Kind Sponsorships and Donations 

Events like a 5K or other fundraisers often include an auction or items that are given away. For events like these, donations are collected for GiGi’s Playhouse and all help to support our Playhouse.

Examples of in-kind sponsorships include:

  • Staff members’ time, services or expertise
  • Goods, such as products and items
  • Underwriting for a specific part of an event—underwriting typically offers the corporation brand visibility.

Naming Sponsorships 

Honor a loved one or someone special in your life by sponsoring a room at GiGi’s Playhouse Milwaukee. Individual, family, foundation, or business names will be prominently displayed outside the room on a special sign as sponsors. Anonymous sponsorships are also available. Funds donated through naming opportunities help pay for educational, therapeutic and career development programming that is FREE to our participants. Naming sponsorships are available for one-year, multi-year, and ongoing frequencies.

Events are publicized through direct mailings, e-mail newsletters, and social media such as Facebook, Instagram and Linked In. Event attendance can range from an intimate gathering of 50-75 people to several hundred guests. Sponsorships for events and fundraisers double as marketing opportunities for your business!
