OUR STORY

Since 1999, Mel’s Charities, Inc has been having fun and impacting countless lives throughout Ozaukee County. Since their humble beginnings, Mel’s has awarded over $1.9 million in grants with a strong emphasis on persons with disabilities, memorials, and community impact.

In 2022,  with the help of our doers, donors, door openers and dreamers we awarded over $300,000 in grants.  The best part is we are just getting started!

One hundred percent of the net proceeds from all events are donated back to the community.
