who we are

Variety the Children’s Charity of Wisconsin was established in 1935. Through the generosity of our community, we have been able to raise nearly $30 million to support children throughout Wisconsin since the inception of the organization. Each of our valuable programs is supported by people just like you in the
communities we serve. With your help, we continue to make a difference in the lives of children every day.

what we do & how we help

Variety is a multi-faceted organization dedicated to one specific goal: Enriching the lives of children with physical or developmental special needs and their families. Each year, thousands of children in your own community are faced with challenges that no child should have to endure. That’s where Variety steps in…to level the playing field! We believe that every child deserves to experience the joys of being a kid!

Thanks to our generous donors and community partners, all of Variety’s programs are provided regardless of ability to pay.

Through our core programs – FREEDOM, DISCOVER, CARE and the Chatter Matters Communication Camp, we sponsor year-round activities, events and opportunities for children in need to pursue a limitless future. These programs improve a child’s physical and emotional health & well-being; build confidence & self-esteem; strengthen resilience and create opportunities to build a brighter future for all children.
