This year’s Partners in Giving campaign kicked off on Oct. 9, 2017 and is underway. The campaign’s official end date is Nov. 30, 2017, but contributions will be accepted through the end of May 2018. If you haven’t received your materials, you should be getting them in the near future from your unit’s Partners in Giving Coordinator.
Last year, the College of Agricultural and Life Sciences increased both the number of donors as well as the amount donated, and received a third place award for percent increase in contributions among all agencies/units in the state with more than 400 employees. With your generosity and participation, it will be exciting to see what gains are made on last year’s numbers!
Remember, you can donate online at giving.wi.gov or by paper pledge form. Anyone who participates in the campaign by turning in a pledge form or donating online is eligible to win the following prizes from the college’s monthly incentive drawings:
- Gift cards for 5 free slices, 1 free breakfast slice and 1 free salad at Ian’s Pizza
