OUR STORY

Mel’s Charities’ mission is to provide “Great Times for Great Causes,” supporting non-profit organizations in Ozaukee County, with a strong emphasis on special needs, memorial scholarships, and human service organizations.

Our goal has always been to help others while having fun. In 2021 Mel’s Charities provided grants totaling over $232,000 to Ozaukee County recipients. What began as a $350 gift in 1999 has now grown to over $1.6 million in total grants.

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

This story just screams collaboration and impacting lives in Ozaukee County.
It's because of individuals/businesses supporting our Great Times for Great Causes we, along with many others helped the Saukville Community Food Pantry reach their goal of $25,000 in 25 days!
Then to have Port Washington State Bank who supports us in so many ways "match it" and turn into $50,000....👍👍❤️!
