This year’s Partners in Giving campaign kicked off on Oct. 8, 2018 and is underway, as you may recall from the email sent that day by Provost Sarah Mangelsdorf and VCFA Laurent Heller. The campaign’s official end date is Nov. 30, 2018, but contributions will be accepted through May 15, 2019. 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, despite a small decrease in total donors, the College of Agricultural and Life Sciences still managed to increase our total contributions by over $4000. With your generosity and participation, we are hopeful to see gains both in our donors and contributions this year.
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. This year, we have even more incentives to give away, including but not limited to:
