The 50th annual Partners in Giving campaign runs from October 10 through November 30. This year’s campaign theme is “Caring for 50 Years.” State, UW, and UW Health employees in Dane County will join together to raise money in support of more than 500 charities making a difference in the lives of those who need it most, locally and globally.

In these times that challenge us all, Wisconsin’s tradition of giving back is as important as ever. Thank you for your continued generosity.
