As we celebrate our 50th anniversary, we are thankful for the partnership of the Milwaukee businesses who have supported us along the way. We'll be featuring a corporate partner each month in 2020 and the work they're doing throughout our city.
May Corporate Spotlight: Milwaukee Bucks
UCC's 50th Anniversary Corporate Spotlight for the month of May is the Milwaukee Bucks. The team embodies what it is to be an active corporate citizen in our city. Focusing on Youth Education, Community Health and Wellness and Community Betterment and Mentoring, the Bucks are committed to being a key leader in positive changes around Wisconsin.
The Milwaukee Bucks emphasize collaboration and partnership in everything they do: from bringing their nonprofit partners together, to connecting players to students; from partnering with the Sacramento Kings to highlight social injustices, to engaging students in academics through Math Hoops. Many people do not know that 100% of their corporate partners have committed to give back to the Milwaukee community through various philanthropic engagements.
A few years ago, the Milwaukee Bucks graciously sponsored the re-flooring of our Bruce-Guadalupe Community School Gym. Shortly after the remodel, players Brook Lopez and Pat Connaughton hosted a Jr. NBA Clinic along with the Bucks Entertainment Team at UCC. Both the players and the students had a fantastic day!
The Milwaukee Bucks' impact is truly felt city wide. For your commitment to Milwaukee, we say: Muchas Gracias Milwaukee Bucks!
