U.S. Venture Open
The Basic Needs Giving Partnership’s origins stretch back to 1986 with the first U.S. Venture Open. Every year, the annual U.S. Venture Open draws hundreds of partners, golfers, and volunteers on the second Wednesday in August. Since its inception, the event has raised more than $60 million and granted $49 million to end poverty in Northeast Wisconsin.
To support our work, please donate to the U.S. Venture Open!
