Workplace Giving

You can donate to Sustain Dane through your workplace giving campaign with Community Shares of Wisconsin. Community Shares raises funds for its member agencies – including Sustain Dane – through workplace giving campaigns at over 100 private sector employers in the Madison area. Workplace giving is a simple way that employees can make tax-deductible donations to local charities through payroll contributions. Workplace giving is easy and efficient! Donors may designate all or part of their gifts to specific CSW member groups which, in turn, receive 100% of those gifts.

Here's how you can donate: 


  • Find out if your workplace is a partner organization here.
  • During the campaign, designate your gift to Sustain Dane. We will receive 100% of your contribution.
  • Or, you can designate your gift to Community Shares of Wisconsin and support Sustain Dane along with many other local nonprofits.
  • Both types of gifts are needed and appreciated. By supporting Community Shares of Wisconsin, you join with other committed individuals who share your vision of a better world.
  • If your organization is not a CSW workplace giving partner, learn how to start a workplace gving campaign here.
