Madison College President Dr. Jack Daniels, III is a strong advocate of community outreach and our fundraising efforts. His message shows how if we each give a little, it will help a lot.
Dear Community Partners,
As the seasons change, many of us anticipate “sweater season,” walks in the woods to enjoy the fall colors, cheering on our favorite teams and pumpkin spice everything. Before we know it, autumn pastimes shift to winter necessities such as shoveling, hanging strands of lights and squeezing in holiday shopping.
In the coming weeks, please take a moment to remember those in our community who do not have the luxury of enjoying the colder months, the homeless family worried about where to sleep, your neighbor unable to afford hot water and parents heartbroken that they cannot afford transportation, health care or food for their children, let alone buy them presents.
There is a way you can help. Give to the Madison College Combined Charitable Campaign. Regardless of the size of your gift, it will make a tremendous difference in the lives of those who need our help.
Last year’s campaign netted nearly $80,000 for community charities – $3,100 of which was raised by our online auction. Your donation to our silent auction will help us in helping the communities we serve. Popular donation items include gift baskets, gift cards, concert/sports tickets, apparel, food or hotel vouchers, sporting goods and electronics. Donors will receive credit for their donations in announcements, event programs, the online auction and the Madison College website.
Your donation will go toward student Scholarships and local community organizations including United Way, Community Health Charities and Community Shares of Wisconsin.
Can we count on you?
Please join us in sharing our gifts and warm hearts with our community.
Jack E. Daniels, III
