Our 2021 Capital Campaign began its silent phase in late spring 2021, will go public in Fall, 2021, extend
through 2022 
and wrap up in early 2023. We hope that extending it over three income tax years will act as an
inducement to participate 
with larger gifts to assist in obtaining our goals.

Background
In 2015, the Polish Center raised the money necessary to satisfy its mortgage. With our beloved Polish Center of Wisconsin
home now over 20 years old, we are in need of completing major capital improvement projects. 
This includes age-related repair and improvements to our roof, windows, HVAC, patio, kitchen, parking lot and grounds.

  • Repair/Replace all Asphalt Surfaces, Damaged
  • Curb and Gutter and Catch Basins, Side Walk
  • Stones/Repair and Reset Retaining Wall
  • Renovate The Patio
  • Replace Kitchen/Restaurant Equipment
  • Repair and Replace Exterior Trim and Windows
  • Repair/Refurbish Heat, Ventilation & AC
  • Repair/Replace Roof
  • Southern Elevation- Rain Gutters, Pond, Gazebo
  • Replace Furnishing/Chairs
  • Refurbish Interior of PCW
  • Replace/Update Computers/Electronic Systems
  • 25 Year Reserve Study
Like many other non-profits, the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic created a financial strain to us as we lost all of our major fundraising activities and events.
Through this capital campaign, we are reaching out to the greater
community to help us raise the funding for these important
projects so the Polish Center of Wisconsin continues 
as a proud heritage home to promote, enrich, and educate the community in Polish culture and heritage.

In 2007, the Polish Heritage Alliance, Inc. Board established a Facility Committee the purpose of which was to address
repairs and maintenance of the building contents and the grounds and landscaping. 
Since establishment, the Committee
has addressed projects ranging from rain gutter installation, carpet replacement, 
outside door replacement, paving, finishing
hard wood floors, outside building resurfacing to new parking lot lighting 
and illumination of the building to mention a few.

The Committee has produced a twenty-five year plan indicating when components will simply wear out and have to
be replaced as well as a list of new improvements.

The problem confronting the Center is that all of its many revenue generating activities, Polish Fest, which has been
canceled this 
year and last, cultural events, admissions, members’ dues, dinners, banquets, golf outings weddings
and so on do not generate enough money to meet the required repairs and replacements as well as new projects.
