Atlas Cares…

Rich with history, Appleton is a community that works together, laughs together, and cries together. But most of all, it is a community of people who genuinely care about one another, particularly the welfare of those who are less fortunate.

NON-PROFIT SUPPORT

Rich with history, Appleton is a community that works together, laughs together, and cries together. But most of all, it is a community of people who genuinely care about one another, particularly the welfare of those who are less fortunate. Knowing that at any given moment any one of us might find ourselves in need, our mission here at Atlas is to extend a helping hand whenever asked. And it seems like there is not a day that goes by that someone is not in need of assistance. So here is how we strive to make Appleton, and the Fox Cities as a whole, a better place to live:

  • Our tip program ensures that customers' gratuities are reinvested in community non-profits. We offer promotion to a single organization each month to be the 'face' of this program and receive all proceeds. If your organization is interested in being featured during an upcoming month, please contact us.
  • Additionally, Atlas Waterfront Cafe & Gathering Room offers free space for non-profit organizations (based on availability). We have the perfect space for meetings and events, and are here to assist in all aspects of planning your special occasion. We also host an annual community networking event to foster connections and gain feedback about our social programs and services.
  • Lastly, while others work to feed the hungry en masse around Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Easter, Atlas offers two, sus-tained, year-round programs. These programs are meant to give people who may not have the chance, the opportunity to enjoy a meal on the historic riverfront as part of "mainstream America."

Community Affiliate Awards Program

  • By simply asking, Atlas awards four $10 gift certificates to your non-profit agency each year to be used in fund-raising efforts or given to your clients as you see fit.
  • A valuable addition to this program is your agency's ability to earn additional $10 certificates. Every $10 purchase by you, your staff, and your friends, receives a punch, and every fully punched card earns your organization a $10 gift certificate.

Atlas Cares ... Share the Love Sunday Brunch

Four or five times a year we host a Sunday brunch open to the public at $19.95 per person plus tax and gratuity. Typically, these Share the Love Sunday Brunches are held in celebration of Mother's Day, Father's Day, in early December between Thanksgiving and Christmas, and again around Valentine's Day

  • For every brunch purchased, our customers select a non-profit agency to receive a $10 Atlas "Share the Love" gift certificate on behalf of the benefactor. These gift certificates may be used by your organization for fundraising events, distributed to those in need as you see fit, or exchanged for cash in the amount of $5.
  • We encourage your agency to Share the Love by sponsoring a Sunday Brunch of your choice. This involves promoting the event in your newsletter, setting up a display table for your organization in our lobby on your special Sunday, and providing a "paid volun-teer team" of three or four to assist our dining room and buffet staff on the day of the event. Your organization's physical presence gives a public face to your organization and goes a long way in encouraging customers to designate your organization on their gift certificates. In addition, Atlas Waterfront Cafe & Gathering Room will make a cash donation to your organization to compensate for volunteer hours.

Thank you for the opportunity to partner with your organization as you work to make Appleton, and the Fox Cities, a better place. Please feel free to contact us for more information. We look forward to hearing from you.
