Charitable Donations

Each year we consider requests for charitable contributions from local organizations. Each donation may not exceed $5,000.00 in total per year and grant decisions shall be made by the CEO for those organizations that enhance and benefit the health and education of individuals in Dane County and across the state of Wisconsin.

We believe investing in the educational and medical wellbeing of the state's residents creates a healthier state that benefits everyone and supports our service to Wisconsin's public employees. 

To apply for consideration, please complete the form to the right.
