Be a partner in giving! You can still donate.
Join a 50-year tradition of caring by making a contribution through the Partners in Giving campaign.
The active phase of this year’s campaign runs through November 30. You can make a pledge online — it’s easy and safe – or mail your contribution. Learn more about all the ways you can give here.
Did you know that if every FP&M employee pledged $1 a month for a year, our division could donate more than $12,000? For the 50th Partners in Giving drive, you’ll have plenty of ways to give to our community. From hybrid events and penny wars, to drawings for prizes, you can get in on the fun and create positive change locally and globally.
What’s Partners in Giving?
Partners in Giving is the Dane County portion of the statewide state employee combined campaign, an annual workplace fundraising campaign for state employees.
More than 500 charitable organizations are participating. Charities must pass eligibility standards to participate in the campaign.
Since its inception in 1973, Partners in Giving has raised more than $85 million for charitable causes.
In 2021 the Partners in Giving campaign raised more than $2 million for over 500 charities from 4,100 state, university and UW Health employees in Dane County.
Employees can contribute online by credit card or payroll deduction. Employees may also select another giving option (cash, check or payroll contribution) using a traditional paper pledge form.
