Making a Difference in the Heart of Our Community

With our heart at the foundation of everything we do, we are incredibly proud to reach out our hand to philanthropic organizations throughout the community – with special attention to those located in our immediate neighborhood.  Our employees, the Badger Family, relentlessly dedicate their time and talent to longtime community partners, helping to strengthen our neighborhoods, inspire our youth, celebrate diversity, and enrich the community in which we live and work.


2020 Walk for Wishes

It was another record-breaking year for our Badger Mutual’s Virtual Walk for Wishes team!  Make-A-Wish Wisconsin, like so many other businesses and organizations, has been impacted by the pandemic.  Currently, there are 430 wishes in the pipeline, waiting to be granted once it is safe to do so.
To help grant as many wishes as possible during these unprecedented times, Badger employees rallied together to raise over $23,000 to grant wishes for Wisconsin children battling life-threatening medical conditions. Specifically, we were able to sponsor Jada’s special wish to have a camper.


Since Make-A-Wish Wisconsin’s founding in 1984, more than 6,500 children and families with life-threatening medical conditions throughout the state have experienced the transformative power of a wish.

United Community Center

Badger Mutual Sponsors the Youth Wall of Fame and Teen Center

The Badger Mutual Wall of Fame, located in the United Community Center’s lower level, lines the hallway with pictures of UCC students recognized for their academics, extracurriculars, and community service. Each year since 1988, the judges, including a panel of school leaders and Badger Mutual employees, select five UCC students to induct into the Wall of Fame.

Badger Mutual is proud to recognize the accomplishments of these outstanding young leaders identified as the 2021 Wall of Fame Inductees:

  • Perla Maritza Cerda is an eighth-grader at UCC Acosta Middle School who plans to pursue nursing, law, or economics/business in college.  
  • Samantha Flores is a junior at Divine Savior Holy Angels High School with a 3.72 GPA. She is active in basketball, cross country, Best Buddies, Furia Latina, Entrepreneur Club, and Campus Ministry.
  • Saul Flores is an eighth-grader at Bruce-Guadalupe Middle School who currently holds a 4.0 GPA and is involved in the Triathlon & Mountain Biking Team. Post high school, he would like to study Aerospace Engineering at Stanford University.
  • Anissa Hernandez is also a junior at Divine Savior Holy Angels who maintains a 3.6 GPA while participating in sports and community service activities. She is exploring careers in law enforcement, forensic science, or the FBI.
  • Elizabeth Herrera is a sophomore at UW-Milwaukee majoring in Communications. She also plans to pursue her Real Estate License. Elizabeth aims to use her degree to help families find homes and is inspired to rehabilitate homes to help the community become stronger.

Wall of Fame – Where Are They Now?

Bruce-Guadalupe Community School & Acosta Middle School – La Galleria Artwork

La Galleria

For the past six years, Badger Mutual chose the artwork of 10-15 talented student artists from Bruce-Guadalupe Community School & Acosta Middle School to be framed & featured at an evening art gallery at the United Community Center (UCC).  In addition to the visual impact the beautiful artwork provides, each student’s piece reminds Badger and UCC visitors alike of the importance of patience, determination, and hard work. Beyond the gallery, the artwork can be seen on the walls of Badger employees’ offices, throughout the UCC, and on display at UCC silent auctions and fundraising events.
