Fundraisers are an important part of USO Wisconsin’s ability to provide quality programs for local military. Besides necessary fundraising, the events provide participating service members with opportunities to make connections with the community, creating memorable moments during and after their time of service.
USO Wisconsin has three annual fundraising events, but you can also design your own fundraiser to support local military. For example, businesses have hosted barbecue competitions, “fill up the boot” drives, matching donation challenges, and more. All ideas are welcome and we’re happy to help support them. Contact USO Wisconsin and put your ideas into action.
