Donations from the greater Milwaukee community are a vital source of funding support for Neighborhood House – in 2011, they comprised 31% of our revenues. The Annual Celebration and gala dinner every November is our signature fundraising event where corporate sponsors and individual donors can and do make a big difference in the lives of NH kids and families.
