Ways to Give
It is only because of caring people like you that we are able to keep our promise to provide affordable lodging and support in our “home away from home” environment for families who need to travel to Milwaukee for medical care. However you choose to support Kathy’s House, we are truly grateful.
Because of the current COVID-restricted environment, revenue we would typically receive from guest contributions, fundraising events and grants have significantly decreased. That is why your support for our patients and guests is more important than ever. Your gift to our urgent Critical Operations Campaign helps close the gap and ensure that Kathy’s House will continue to provide a home away from home for patients and families.
When you shop our Amazon Wishlist, you help us keep our promise to create a welcoming environment for our guests. We are currently only accepting donations of goods from our wishlist.
