Partners in Giving campaign is underway

This year’s Partners in Giving campaign runs from October 14 through November 29, 2013. The campaign, in which state, university and UW Hospital and Clinics employees can contribute to a wide array of charities through one large effort, is of great importance to charitable organizations that provide services and support to a wide array of vital causes in Wisconsin and beyond. Last year, Partners in Giving raised over $2.6 million for charities through the generosity of state, university, and UW Hospital and Clinics employees. CALS raised over $59,000 in the 2012 campaign and we’re striving to exceed that goal this year.

If you would like to participate in this year’s campaign, you may choose to donate to specific charities or you may give a general donation that will be shared among all the charitable organizations in the program. You may donate through your payroll, or by check, cash or credit card.

CALS will hold bi-weekly drawings for prizes, beginning on November 1. Entry into the drawings is automatic by turning in your pledge form to your unit coordinator or by making a donation online. The first prize drawing will be for a set of four tickets to the women’s hockey game on February 15, 2014 vs. Minnesota.
