Partners in Giving, October 10 – November 30

Trusted. Efficient. Successful. Partners in Giving is the nationally-recognized state employee workplace fundraising campaign in Dane County, raising millions of dollars each year for over 500 charities.  Every October, hundreds of employee volunteers reach out to their Dane County colleagues at state agencies, UW Madison and UW Health. Employees are given the opportunity to make a donation to the charity or charities of their choice and select how they want to pay for it. Donations can be made by payroll deduction, credit card, check or cash.

During the 2021 Partners in Giving campaign, employees donated over $2 million to 500 local, regional, national and international charities and their umbrella organizations.  University Housing raised just over $4800.  This year we have a goal of raising $10,000! Remember, it’s your charity, your choice! Help improve lives here and around the world by being a Partner in Giving!

Throughout the campaign, you will be receiving information on how to support the campaign, Housing campaign activities, and campaign updates. Your participation and support are very important to the success of the campaign.

The 2022 Partners in Giving fall campaign encourages you to make a gift online through our e-pledge system. If you cannot give via e-pledge, paper pledge forms will still be accepted through the mail.

Here are your options for giving:
