March Madness Bracket Fundraiser

March Madness is officially over and that means that the rankings for “TeamSoft’s March Madness 2015” pool are now posted. We had 35 people participate with a $10 entry fee and Brian Worden took 1st place receiving $100, Tammy Miles took 2nd place receiving $50, and Mike Burns took 3rd place receiving $25. As a part of our company culture of giving back to the community, half of the entry fees of $175 were donated to the Madison School and Community Recreation’s extramural basketball program while the other half was distributed to the winners. The TeamSoft Charitable Giving Committee also contributed a matching donation of $10 per bracket up to $300 which was met and we were also able to raise $239 at our March Madness Happy Hour during a fun basketball toss game. From all of these totals, we were able to raise $714 to help alleviate the entry fees for the kids participating in MSCR’s extramural basketball program! Thank you to everyone who filled out brackets this year and to everyone who helped make this possible. We look forward to next year’s brackets and the friendly competition. 


TeamSoft Partnership with Endurance House

TeamSoft has partnered up with Endurance House and starting now through December 2015 TeamSoft employees will receive a 12% discount towards most of their in-store products. Simply let the cashier know you work at TeamSoft and they will take that discount off your purchase. In addition, Endurance House will host two workshops for TeamSoft focusing on setting fitness goals and stress relief. The workshops will be held on Monday May 11th and November 2nd, 5:30 PM – 6:30 PM, at the Middleton Endurance House. Not only will you earn wellness credits for attending these sessions, you will also get a coupon for $15 off a new pair of shoes. More information regarding the workshops will be sent out as the dates get closer.


The TeamStep 250

TeamStep 2015 Logo2

Starting April 1st, TeamSoft will be launching the TeamStep 250, a walking challenge, providing TeamSoft employees and their families the opportunity to earn 2 wellness credits per person. This program requires that you use a tracking device to measure the number of steps you take in a day for 5 consecutive weeks. After determining your individual baseline in the 1st week, 250 steps will be added to your daily step average for each subsequent week. This approach will create a personalized challenge that is both realistic and beneficial! You will need to log your daily steps and submit the logs to Athena on specific dates. Please watch your email, as more detailed information will be sent soon. If you have any questions, you can email Athena at This email address is being protected from spambots.

TeamSoft's March Madness Happy Hour

Happy Hour

Join us at TeamSoft’s March Madness Happy Hour on Thursday, March 26, 2015. The happy hour will be held at Pooley’s Sports Bar in Madison, WI from 4:30pm – 9:00pm with a variety of food options and drinks provided by TeamSoft. There will also be big screen TVs for those of you with March Madness brackets as this will be the first night of the Sweet 16 games.

In addition to drinks and food, we will have a March Madness fundraiser that will benefit the Madison School and Community Recreation’s (MSCR) extramural basketball program. This program offers basketball leagues to more than 200 high school students who did not make their school’s team. The majority of these kids come from low-income households and the money from this fundraiser will help offset the $45 registration fees for those families that need financial assistance.

To join our fundraiser, you need no prior experience with brackets. All teams are rated, so picking teams is extremely easy. All brackets are $10 a piece and you can purchase as many brackets as you want. Half of the profits in this pool will be added to TeamSoft’s fundraising efforts, while the other half will be divided up amongst our 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners! The TeamSoft Charitable Giving Committee has also agreed to donate an additional $10 for every bracket that is filled up to $300. That means for every person who signs up for a bracket, $5 will be donated to the winner’s pool while $15 will be donated to MSCR!

Please RSVP by March 11,2015 to the evite that was sent out in February, so we can guarantee there will be enough food. In addition, watch out for an email in the beginning of March with all of the details on how to sign up for our March Madness fundraiser.

Sharing Wishes Spring Wish List 2015

Message from FSP Case Manager

Thank you for the holiday gifts for the parents. We were overwhelmed by your generosity, and the families were ecstatic and so appreciative. There were hugs and tears. One woman and her husband were thrilled with the gifts they received. She said that it helped make her holiday even more special.

I received a call from another client who was so thankful and delighted to receive the wonderful gifts that your organization had donated to her for Christmas. She was so excited to complete her apartment with the new bathroom and kitchen items that she received. She said it now feels like her home, a feeling she hasn't had in a while. Thank you for making her holiday special. Another client received a gift certificate for a massage, and she let me know that it was one of the most relaxing and fun things she’s ever done. A 4-year-old girl wanted me to pass along thanks to all of you for helping to make her mom happy

Thank you again so much. TeamSoft definitely helped to make their holidays much brighter.

As a reminder, we continuously have new families beginning the year-long program and may have up to 4 new families each month. Because most of them are moving from the homeless shelter into an apartment and are starting over with nothing, we are hoping you can help out with some spring cleaning supplies! Cleaning products are very hard for the families to afford. In addition, personal care items like lotion, deoderant, and shampoo can put a strain on a family’s budget.

As always, thank you so much for your continued generosity. You truly make a difference in the lives of these families, and they are so grateful.

-Ellen and Melisa,

FSP Case Managers

Sharing Wishes Payroll Deduction

Sharing Wishes Picture

In 2011, the TeamSoft Charitable Giving Committee formed a partnership with the Salvation Army’s Family Stabilization Program (FSP). This program helps families in the community move from a homeless shelter into housing and families who are trying to avoid eviction or homelessness. While the FSP addresses the basic needs and skill-building resources that families need to maintain housing through case management, the Sharing Wishes program has a vision of making available resources to strengthen the fabric of the families and their homes. We’ve asked FSP families to create seasonal wish lists that include fun or enriching children’s activities, resources to empower the family, and every day or seasonal items. Although all of the items donated over the past 3 years are too numerous to mention, some highlights have included a book drive, a fundraiser to purchase farmer’s market gift packs, holiday gifts, bus passes,  pool passes, cleaning products, kitchen items, and furniture.

Last year, we asked our TeamSoft employees to participate in a tax-deductible payroll deduction to support these families in our Sharing Wishes program. With your help, we were able to raise over $7,500 to assist these FSP families! We had such a successful year in 2014 that we would like to ask you for your generosity going into 2015. If you would like to participate by making a one-time donation or a continuous payroll deduction, please email Jamie at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. Thank you again for making 2014 a successful year and for your continued support of the Sharing Wishes program.


Begin the New Year in Style

Beginning this past July, TeamSoft formed a partnership with Land’s End to create a personalized website with various TeamSoft apparel for our welcome and anniversary gifts. On this site, you can choose from a variety of clothing items with the TeamSoft logo on it. Even though we give out these gift certificates, everyone is more than welcome to purchase as many items as they desire. You can access this site by going to http://ces.landsend.com/teamsoft.

As we ring in the New Year, we would like to remind everyone who has received a gift certificate to utilize it as we will be having an upcoming contest! During the month of February we will be holding a contest to commemorate TeamSoft’s 19th birthday! We will be giving a gift card away to the person who sends us the most creative picture next to any type of TeamSoft gear/swag. This means that anyone can participate if they have a clothing item, pen, or even a water bottle with the TeamSoft logo on it. Stay tuned to February’s newsletter and social media for details about our upcoming contest!
