Our Vital Community Service Depends on Your Donation

Please Help With a Monetary Contribution

As a non-profit that receives no taxpayer funding, South Milwaukee Human Concerns (SMHC) relies on the generosity of individuals, especially local residents and businesses, to fulfill its important mission of providing help and hope to needs-based South Milwaukee residents. Since 1972, SMHC has helped many thousands of residents endure economic hardship and reach self-sufficiency. Please help us continue our vital work.

  • Monetary donations are especially needed as we work to serve around 1,000 current South Milwaukee residents every month, including hundreds of children.
  • In Memoriam donations can be made as a tribute to the memory of a family member, friend, colleague, etc. Honor them through the good work of SMHC.
  • Help celebrate a birthday, anniversary, or other special occasion by designating contributions to SMHC on behalf of the person/event.
  • Donate stock: Interested in transferring stock or securities for a charitable deduction? Please have your broker contact us (414-764-5340) to arrange.
