The East Side Alano Club of Madison is supported through membership dues, donations from attendees at 12 step meetings, 12 step groups, grants and donations from people like you. We also sponsor a variety of events and activities to help with financing the operation of our facility. In the past, this has included a silent auction, ice cream socials, pot lucks, raffles, and an annual plant sale. However, the vast majority of our income has been generated through matching donations to our Building Fund.
In 2017-18, we raised over $27,500 to match donations for the same amount. This money has been used in part to pay for:
- New parking lot
- Replacement windows
We also have numerous outstanding maintenance and replacement projects waiting to be done, and it seems we will be asking for donations “forever”! Please note that donations to the East Side Alano Club help with the ongoing operation of our facility. Donations to the Capital Project Fund support major projects only, projects such as replacing/updating the heating and cooling systems, and fixing or replacing the roof.
