East Madison Community Center

The East Madison Community Center hosts several events throughout the year to bring the community together and raise funds to support programming. Having the support of the business community is essential to our ability to host these events. We would appreciate it if you would consider the following sponsorship opportunities.

If your company or organization is interested in sponsoring any of these events please contact the Center at info@eastmadisoncc.org.

Bowl-A-Thon

The Annual EMCC Bowl-A-Thon event is held in November each year to raise funds for our Minority Achievement Program. The program provides its minority learning center 90 minutes each weekday and an hour on Saturday. The impact on the community has been tremendous. The average GPA of our students has risen to 3.4 and the high school graduation rate is 98%. Minority tutors primarily staff the program, some are our paid staff, and many are volunteers from the UW-Madison’s Masters Education Program as well as students from Madison and Edgewood College. In recent years we have seen many of our student attend and graduate from UW-Madison. This year was very special as we sent our first student away to Stanford University!

The Bowl-A-Thon is a fun event that supports this important work. Please consider one of the following ways to support.
