When it comes to pepelwerk, we want more member organizations to help their members evolve with work. What’s unique about our offering is that when you implement pepelwerk for your members, you gain another fund raising source.
Leaders of member organizations have to keep operations running, fund raise and deliver member value.

Member groups are key to driving change and economic health.
There are polar opposite view points on the value and actual motivation of some of member organizations. United Way takes the position that they are one of the greatest tools of capitalist societies to create economic, social and civic health. The National Nonprofit Council’s view is that they are vehicles from redistributing wealth and targeting what is valuable to a society beyond the influence of government.
The opposite end, like the Milwaukee Independent, perceives member organizations as cover ups for bad behaviors of the wealthy or a way to collect cash. The reason people have these views is because they believe that social issues should be nonexistent if member organizations were doing what they were supposed to do.
Maybe these two opposing views are why we are so dedicated to making pepelwerk available to member organizations. We know the value of the connections and partnerships that can be created and we want you to demonstrate your impact to communities.
