Adopt-a-Nonprofit is a community service program designed to expose our nearly 7,000 members to nonprofit organizations doing good work throughout the Milwaukee Region.



How the Program Works

FUEL will adopt eight nonprofits for one year, promoting the organization's mission, events, and volunteer opportunities to our members. 
Each nonprofit will be assigned a team of young professionals that will work with them exclusively to devise a plan of outreach and promotion to spread the word about the organization's work.
Benefits to the Adopted Nonprofits
Adopted organizations will receive the following support and exposure from FUEL Milwaukee:
  • One major event designed to recruit FUEL members into your organization’s volunteer pool
  • An opportunity to showcase your nonprofit at one of FUEL’s Purely Social after-hours mixers
  • A customized page on FUEL’s website highlighting your organization’s mission, programs, events and volunteer opportunities
  • Free job and volunteer postings to FUEL’s online career center
  • Inclusion in status updates, tweets and messages via FUEL’s social media networks and
  • Event promotions in FUEL’s monthly newsletter, The Connector
  • Two free memberships for young professionals or burgeoning leaders in your organization
