Milwaukee Skywarn Wish List

The Milwaukee Areas Skywarn Association (MASA) is registered with the Wisconsin Secretary of State as a nonprofit corporation. Because we operate for charitable, educational, and scientific purposes, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) has classified us as a 501c3 tax exempt corporation. We annually file IRS form 990. All donations to Milwaukee Skywarn are tax deductible and are used to support our mission to promote the identification, evaluation, and reporting of dangerous weather (and  to lessen the burden of the National Weather Service). This mission is accomplished by providing on-going awareness and educational outreach to all  individuals,  institutions, volunteer,  public safety and other served agencies requesting our resources. This includes (1) public  meetings and speaking programs, (2) educational seminars, (3) handouts, (4) newsletters, flyers, (5) two-way radio services, (6) internet and social networking sites (Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, Zello), and (7) local, regional, and national E-mail lists. Our staff and volunteers are not financially compensated.
