Ways to Give

We have a number of ways you can help! We need your help to allow us to remain a thriving, bustling nonprofit that provides programming for newborns to our older adults. We are a “birth to life” organization. There is programming for every stage in your life!


Monetary Donations

Monetary donations allow us to leverage the most for your donation.  We accept checks, cash and credit cards.  To donate with Visa or Mastercard you may contact us by phone, (414) 482-1000, or mail/walk-in your donation to:

Bay View Community Center
1320 E. Oklahoma Avenue
Milwaukee, WI 53207

In-Kind Donations

If you have an in-kind donation that is not on our list, please contact Mike Mortell, at mmortell@bayviewcenter.org or (414) 482-1000.


Non-Perishable Food

Food is always needed in our Emergency Food Pantry. We average between 300-500 visits a month from Families and Individuals in need. Items that we always need are Peanut Butter & Jelly, Cereal, Creamed Soups, Canned Fruits, Pasta, Rice and Canned Meats.


Sporting or Entertainment Tickets

Have tickets you can no longer use? Consider donating them to the Center. We will distribute them to a family or individual who otherwise would not be able to go.


Gift Cards

Have a gift card you cannot or will not use? Consider re-gifting it to the Center. If you are a Businesses Owner, Gift Cards & Certificates are a great donation to generate new customers from one of our Fundraising Events. We auction gift baskets off at these events. Contact Mike Mortell at BVCC for our next Event Date.


E-Bay Auction Items

Do you have a collection, an antique or a collectible item that you would like to donate to us to sell on e-Bay? Contact mmortell@bayviewcenter.org or (414) 482-1000 to see if it is something that we can accept for sale. Popular sale items are vintage/estate jewelry, hats, purses; stamp or coin collections; collectible pottery, glass & figurines; other antiques.
