The Badger Mutual Insurance Women’s Amateur (BMIWA) held at the Brown Deer Golf Course is one of the largest amateur women’s tournaments of its kind in our area. It is a two-day, 18-hole stroke play tournament, providing a quality, competitive event for amateur women golfers.

All proceeds from the tournament are donated to local organizations focused on the needs of women and children throughout southeastern Wisconsin, raising over $290,000 over the past two decades. The proceeds from this year’s tournament will benefit Sojourner Family Peace Center & LOTUS Legal Clinic.  Click here for more information!

Make-A-Wish Wisconsin


2022 Walk for Wishes

A full summer’s worth of fundraising – through both company-sponsored events and the personal efforts of employees – culminated in a wildly successful Walk for Wishes event on August 27. Employees gathered to walk a 1-mile course at The Rock Sports Complex in Franklin, WI, and celebrated our final fundraising total: a new Badger record, over $25,000!

Throughout the past two decades, we have granted almost 100 wishes, and with the funds our team raised for this year’s Walk, we granted Taylor & Tyson’s wishes to go to Walt Disney World ® Resort and Jacob’s wish to go to Hawaii.

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.

We are proud to be a corporate sponsor of the annual golf outing, supporting Nativity Jesuit’s mission to provide holistic education to K4-8 students.  On Monday, August 1, 2022, friends and supporters of Nativity Jesuit Academy gathered at Westmoor Country Club for the 21st Annual Golf Outing.  Together we raised more than $150,000 to support Nativity students and fill the gap between school choice funding and the true cost of a Nativity education.

As one of the highest-performing Nativity schools in the United States and the only one in Wisconsin, Nativity Jesuit is poised to respond to the growing need of Milwaukee’s Latino community, by serving more than 250 students and their families.
