Donate

You and your organization can help make moments matter for military members and their families living in or passing through Wisconsin. While USO Wisconsin programs provide needed services in many areas of the state, there are still several underserved areas for Wisconsin military. Your donations will help supply current and new service locations, organize additional programs, and hire staff to support those underserved areas.

Your organization can support USO Wisconsin through donations, fundraising, sponsorships, grants, in-kind giving, or the Combined Federal Giving Campaign (a federal and postal employee giving program). Your generosity directly benefits Wisconsin military and their family members and those passing through Wisconsin while on duty or returning from duty. You can be sure programs and funding are continually evaluated to ensure funds are distributed efficiently to provide the most direct benefit to those military members.

CFC Donations

CFC is the Combined Federal Campaign program providing federal employees an efficient way to support USO Wisconsin. Show your support for our troops by participating in the CFC program at your federal workplace today and designating USO Wisconsin as your donation recipient.

Your donations will help USO Wisconsin provide critical support to those who need us most, including forward-deployed troops, military families, and families of the fallen. Let them know they are not forgotten.

Donate Directly

Make a tax-deductible donation to help keep service members connected to family, home and country Thank military for the sacrifices they make every day. Your donations make it possible for the USO to support service members and their families. From the moment they join, through their assignments and deployments, and as they transition back to their communities, your donation ensures the USO is always by their side.

Fundraisers

Fundraisers are an important part of USO Wisconsin continuing to provide quality programs to local military. Not only do the events raise funds, but service members participate in the events providing connections, community, and moments that matter during and after their time of service.

You can design your own fundraiser to help support local military through USO Wisconsin. Businesses have hosted barbeque 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.

What the USO of Wisconsin has done for the morale of my family and the memories we have made are priceless. We are and will always be eternally grateful for what you have done for us while I have been stationed here.

Jason

The USO of WI is an amazing organization that has also allowed me the opportunity to share some of the benefits of my military service with the people that deserve it the most; my friends and family.

Matthew

I just want to thank the USO and the Brewers for the warm welcome and hospitality. It certainly was an honor to throw out the first pitch! It will be a day that I will never forget. Words cannot really describe what the USO does for the military and their families. It definitely makes the a difference in the life of a soldier!

Lynn

We thank you for your efforts on this and truly appreciate the support. You guys provide such a wonderful service, and I hope you know how much everyone that wears the uniforms appreciates it.

Joe (Navy)

I can’t thank you enough for the opportunity and for inviting us to the Brett Favre dinner. There is honestly no bigger Packer fan than I and Brett came straight to our table, shook our hands and I actually got to chat with the man himself! Such an amazing experience!

Robert (128 ARW Emergency Actions Controller)

Attending a Brewers game means so much. It means we all can do something together, with our families, and create memories. All of us soldiers can be united in our cheering for the home team as we are all Brewers fans regardless of where we call home.

Marikay (CPT, AG)

I want to and can not thank the USO of Wisconsin enough for your continued support to the U.S. Coast Guard in Milwaukee. I retired in 2015 and I have always told our new people that report to Sector Lake Michigan to take advantage of the un-wavering support of your office.

Matthew (USCG)

Thank you for being available to those who serve our country, to those who have served, and to those of us who love them!

Charis (Attendee at Airport Event)

Camp Hometown Heroes 2015 was a great success. With your help, we provided this life changing opportunity to 140 campers from 27 states this year. Thank you for supporting our mission.

Neil, Paula, Deb

Great to see a place where I know I’m welcomed. It’s never easy leaving home, but even harder when you sit alone.
