Marc has dedicated his professional and volunteer life to nonprofit organizations, beginning in 1970, when he organized his home town for the first Earth Day.  He was active in civil rights for minorities, and anti-poverty efforts early on, and in the 70’s promoted civil rights for the LGBT community.  After attending the University of Wisconsin, he opened a nonprofit bookstore featuring fine arts and small press publications by local artists and writers.  He developed a Cultural Center that also housed a small international touring experimental theatre company (Theatre X, of which Willem Dafoe is the best known alumnus).  Haupert was named managing director of the company, and in 1979 founded his own management support organization, Arts Services Associates, which provided management and booking services for twenty performing organizations in the upper Midwest.   In 1984 he founded the AIDS Resource Center of Wisconsin, Inc., serving as president of the board for five years.  While directing Chicago House and Social Service Agency, he lent significant advocacy and programmatic guidance to the development of the federal Ryan White CARE Act.  He has authored manuals, reports and training curricula at the regional and national levels.
