Be Amazing Origin
Be Amazing is a local charitable organization established, in May of 2017, to honor those impacted by tragedy in the central Wisconsin area. Our goal is to empower and inspire members of our community to make positive change in the community. Through our Be Amazing fund, a 501c3 nonprofit fund under the Community Foundation of North Central Wisconsin, we are able to provide funding to individuals and groups to enable them to complete community service projects.
Be Amazing is run by an Advisory Group consisting of eight members. To date we have provided funding to several groups and individuals. One such group is Shepherd’s House’s “Beds for Kids”. This group provides beds for children in the community who do not have one. The funding they received from Be Amazing provided beds for 13 children. A second group, “Brinley Believes”, established to provide stuffed animals to children who are hospitalized, received a donation from our fund enabling them to deliver 62 stuffed animals to young patients a local hospital.
Youth involvement is also a component of our organization, and currently there are six school-based Be Amazing clubs within the D.C. Everest and Wausau area school districts. These clubs are comprised of approximately 175 students in grades 3 through 9. Each club has developed its own plan for community service projects to be completed during the academic year. Funding for these projects can be obtained by applying for a Be Amazing grant. The following list includes a few past and present projects of the various clubs:
Be Amazing adds value to the community because our focus is different. We focus on the community as a whole not just one subset or one group. We want to give back to everyone by encouraging others to get involved and to find a “cause” that they are passionate about.
Our goal is to promote positive change in our community to honor the victims and those impacted on March 22, 2017.
Our mission is to empower and inspire people of all ages to realize their AMAZING potential for positively impacting our diverse community.
Our core values are love, respect, courage, and integrity.
A “Be Amazing Fund” was established to provide monetary support for those individuals and/or groups wanting to make such a difference.
We hope to prove that there is more good in the world than bad by inspiring others to move forward in positive ways in our community!
