Why Donate?

Why Donate

For more than 45 years, Partners in Giving has been creating enormous positive change at home and around the world through the amazing generosity of state workers in Dane County. Organized and run by volunteers, each year the campaign invites state agency, University, and UW Health employees to take part in special events and, most of all, make a direct donation to the charity or charities of their choice. By joining together we can build a better world,  state employees are using their numbers to make a large and lasting impact on the lives of their neighbors, fellow state residents and families across the U.S. and around the world.
