We are committed to building strong and vibrant communities and making a positive difference where we work and live. Given our commitment to financing healthcare facilities, senior living communities, religious, and educational institutions, our firm is directly linked to helping communities prosper. Nowhere is this commitment more evident than in our associate's active involvement in our philanthropy platform - Ziegler's Philanthropy Program (ZaPP) a balanced mix of opportunities for individual and corporate giving, volunteerism, and sponsorship.
Applying our expertise in financial services and wealth management, we use a matrix approach in our community outreach that maximizes our resources. Utilizing time, talent, and treasure in the three main focus areas of education, health, and financial well-being provide a laser-like focus to our philanthropic efforts.
Our Mission is to make every dollar given and every volunteer hour spent count in the communities we serve.
Making a difference in our communities requires action. That is why our firm created the Ziegler Cares program, which provides associates one day off a year to volunteer collectively at firm wide volunteer events or individually with a not-for-profit of the associate's choice. Ziegler is active in our Chicago and Milwaukee communities, providing multiple opportunities to volunteer throughout the year.

Recognizing that our greatest asset is our associates, we aim to leverage their skills, capabilities and talents to maximize impact in our partnership organizations.
How do we do that? Like any good relationship, it takes time and that is why our partnerships are mid-term focused and structured. Much like pro-bono consulting, our associates take the time to learn about our partner's challenges and expertly develop solutions with their staff. We've been able to leverage our marketing, information technology and not-for-profit management knowledge to make a lasting impact in the vitality of the organizations we serve.
We also recognize that our associates are already active in their respective communities and we want to find any way to support their efforts. That is why we developed the Ziegler Associate Sponsorship program so that we can allocate corporate dollars to our own associates' philanthropic endeavors.
The Ziegler Philanthropy Program (ZaPP) is a combination of time, talent and treasure that provides the resources needed to advance the mission of our selected partners. To be considered a ZaPP partner, an organization must be nominated by a Ziegler associate during open nominations. Our next nomination cycle will open in October 2014, for 2015 financial support.
