Partners in Giving campaign is underway

This year’s Partners in Giving campaign runs from October 13 through November 28, 2014. 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 $2.4 million for charities through the generosity of state, university, and UW Hospital and Clinics employees. CALS raised over $57,000 in the 2013 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. New this year is an e-pledge system where you may submit an online form to donate by payroll deduction or credit card – no paper form needed!

CALS will hold weekly prize drawings beginning on October 23. 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 gift certificate to Ian’s Pizza!
