First Business Bank How We Are Building Hope Strengthening Communities

HOW WE ARE BUILDING HOPE
STRENGTHENING COMMUNITIES

by Jim Hartlieb

I have been on the Board of Directors at MOM for almost eight years.There are many great causes in our community but the reason I chose to devote my time to MOM is because of its organizational efficiency (over 82% of the funds that are donated to MOM are used for the purpose of serving clients) and because of the direct impact we have on the lives of the people in our community.

Everyone deserves a second chance. MOM’s clients are predominantly people that have been dealt a tough hand and are in the process of working their way to a better place for themselves and for their families. The bottom line is when I donate my time, talent and treasure to MOM I know it is being used to fulfill the greatest needs in our community.

First Business Bank has been an active supporter of the not-for-profit community for many years and is proud to include MOM in the list of the many organizations we have supported over the years. The Bank’s $10,000 gift to MOM’s Capital Campaign is a testament to our commitment to the community and our confidence in an awesome organization – thanks for all the great things you do in our community, MOM!

For 35 years, MOM has worked tirelessly to address the most critical and basic needs of the Middleton, West Madison, and Cross Plains communities. The $1.4M Building Hope, Strengthening Communities Campaign supports the purchase and renovation of the consolidated facility at 3502 Parmenter St. in Middleton that houses the MOM food pantry, clothing center, and administrative offices.

The campaign started in the summer of 2013 and has raised more than $1 million so far with the help and generosity of individuals and businesses from the area. MOM is asking for community help in raising the last $400,000 needed to meet the goal to help MOM eliminate a long-term mortgage and allow them to redirect those funds to help more people with more services.
