Social Investment
As a business, Trade Press delivers media products and services that matter for our clients and audiences. As a neighbor and contributor to our community, we value new ideas and practices that matter to those around us. Trade Press' social investments reflect a dedication to the community not only by senior management, but every single employee.

In 2005, Trade Press launched Hope Chest – a charitable giving committee led by a different voluntary group of employees each year. To date the Hope Chest committee has distributed company funds to nearly one hundred 501(c)3 charitable organizations. Here is a list of the worthwhile charities that received support from Hope Chest in 2013:

• Alzeimer's Association of SE WI
• Big Brother Big Sister Milwaukee
• Hebron House of Hospitality
• Hope House of Milwaukee
• La Causa
• Legal Aid Society
• Make-A-Wish Wisconsin
• Milwaukee Center for Independence
• Milwaukee Rescue Mission
• Nativity Jesuit Middle School
• Pearls for Teen Girls
• Portfish, Ltd.
• Razor Sharp Minds Foundation
• Sojourner Family Peace Center
• St. Ben’s Community Meal in Milwaukee
• St. Joseph's Medical Clinic
• Starfish Foundation
• The First Tee of Milwaukee County
• The Milwaukee Regional Firefighters Burn Foundation, Inc.

The community at Trade Press is dedicated to working with steadfast charitable organizations to empower those in need. We are continually seeking ways to share our talents and resources with those who need them most.

Volunteering is Important Business
An important employee benefit for the entire Trade Press staff is the volunteering program. Every year, employees are given eight hours of paid work leave to volunteer at a 501(c)3 organization of their choice.
