Family Fun in the Sun Packs:
We’ve set a goal of helping 40 individuals (about 10 families) have a fun day at the Goodman Pool this summer. Please consider donating a Fun in the Sun Pack to help us reach this goal!
A Fun in the Sun Pack includes:
- A Madison Metro Bus Pass (available for purchase at many local grocery stores including Copp’s, Hyvee, Metcalfe’s Market, and the Willy Street Co-op)
- A Beach Towel
If you’d prefer to make a monetary donation for a Fun in the Sun Pack, please write checks payable to Madison Community Foundation. In the memo section, write TeamSoft Sharing Wishes Fund.
Let’s work together to pool our resources! For every Fun in the Sun Pack (i.e. combined bus pass, sunscreen and beach towel) donated, the TCGC will donate a Goodman Pool pass to go along with it. Watch for updates on Social Media as we fill in one sun for each family of four that will receive a Fun in the Sun Pack.
How to Donate:
Donations can be mailed or dropped off at the TeamSoft office (1350 Deming Way, Suite 250, Middleton, WI 53562; ATTN: Lisa). Please contact Lisa at 608-829-7285 to arrange a pick-up at your client site.
You can also bring your donations to our May Wellness event on May 11th at 5:30 PM at Middleton Endurance House, the June Wellness event on June 3rd at the TeamSoft office at 5:30 PM or the TeamSoft night at the Madison Mallards on June 23rd (details will be sent out soon for this event)
Monetary donations can help with urgent needs. Please write checks payable to Madison Community Foundation. In the memo section, write TeamSoft Sharing Wishes Fund.
We will be collecting items for the Summer Wish List until July 15, 2015.
Last summer we held a free, very impactful financial wellness session for our employees about estate planning. We will be bringing Peter and Shayna from Borakove Osman, LLC back to share their enlightening presentation for anyone who missed it. Topics include the difference between a will, trust, living will and revocable trust, avoiding probate, why it’s important to designate a financial and health care power of attorney, the questions you need to mull over in order to draft these documents, and more. On the same day, time, and place, we will offer an alternative, free financial wellness event. A Financial Planning 101 session will be presented by Matt Clooten from Benjamin F. Edwards & Co. The goal of his personable and interactive speaking style is to make the world of finances understandable and less daunting. He will get you thinking about your financial values and plans for your income including short-term and long-term goals, retirement, income protection, investment options, etc.
Please save the date for these FREE events on Wednesday, June 3, 2015 from 5:30 PM – 7:00 PM at the TeamSoft Office in Middleton, WI. Significant others are welcome and attendance will be worth one wellness credit per person!
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 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.
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!

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
