Partners in Giving

Campaign Open from October 7 – November 29

Every fall University, UW Health and State of Wisconsin employees join forces to raise funds through the Partners in Giving campaign to benefit more than 500 local, regional, national and international charities. SMPH has a long history of improving lives in our community, including our patients & research participants and their families, through direct medical care, research, local partnerships and philanthropy. SMPH is the largest unit on campus and among other State of Wisconsin agencies, so when SMPH members participate, it has a significant impact on the results of the entire campaign!

All SMPH employees are encouraged to donate to the worthy cause(s) of their choice. Our objective is to raise the SMPH participation level from 15% to 17%. Please do your part to help us meet this goal! Donations can be made online through payroll deduction or credit card at the Partners in Giving website using your NetID login. Alternatively, a paper pledge form can be turned back to your unit coordinator. (SMPH employees should have received a pledge packet from their unit coordinator.)

SMPH will be holding a Partners in Giving drawing, including all campaign participants, for prizes such as an autographed men’s basketball, men’s hockey and wrestling tickets, UW Theater and Drama production tickets, etc.  Additionally, all participants will have access to reduced price tickets for UW men’s and women’s basketball, men’s hockey and wrestling events!

Many departments and units are also organizing Partners in Giving events. These include:

  • Monday, November 4, 11:30 am-1:30 pm in HSLC 3110B – SMPH Partners in Giving Chili Cook-Off. Bring in your best pot of chili and/or come to “tip” / vote for your favorite.
  • Wednesday, December 11, 10:00 am-3:00 pm in the HSLC atrium – SMPH Partners in Giving Silent Auction. Sign up by November 13 to contribute an auction item. All shoppers are welcome on December 11!

For additional information and to donate (using your NetID log in), vist the Partners in Giving website.

Please act now with your pledge to make a difference, but certainly do so by November 29, 2019!
