Partners in Giving campaign now underway

Partners in Giving—the State, University, and UW Health Employees combined campaign of Dane County—will run this year from October 12 to November 27, 2020. The campaign, now in its 47th year, is an opportunity for UW, UW Health and State employees to positively affect people’s lives by providing much-needed support to the essential services and charitable work of more than 500 local, state, national and international organizations.

Last year, CALS employees raised over $64K to contribute to the overall campaign, which raised nearly $2.5 million in total.

In 2020, the Partners in Giving campaign theme is “Stronger, Together.” In that spirit, all are invited to support this year’s campaign!

As you might expect, the campaign will look very different than it has in years past. For one, participants are encouraged to make their pledges online this year. If e-pledging doesn’t work for you, there is a way to contribute using paper forms sent through the mail. Learn more about all of the ways you can give here.

Additionally, due to the pandemic, the college’s recognition will look different this year and we won’t be doing incentive drawings.  We hope to be able to do this again next year.

If you have questions, visit or contact your department/unit volunteer or the college’s Partners in Giving co-chairs, Therese McHenry and Julie Scharm.
