We are requesting support from organizations across the state of Wisconsin who understand the importance of helping the soldiers who protect our freedom. We are asking for help so that we can expand our quality programs throughout the state. The funds will be used to supply our service locations, organize more programs, and hire staff at new locations that are part of our plan for expansion.
Whether we receive support from–a fundraiser, the Combined Federal Giving Campaign, general donation, corporate sponsorship, grants, or a gift in-kind–USO Wisconsin strives to ensure that the support goes directly to a military member or their family. The programs are constantly evaluated for efficiencies and the budget is closely reviewed.
Show your support for our troops by designating the USO of Wisconsin SE Region, Inc. #76810 as a recipient of your CFC contribution.
Your donations will help us 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.
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 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 and are incorporated throughout the events.
You can also design your own fundraiser to help support USO Wisconsin and local military. From a BBQ competing against other businesses in your industry to “fill up a boot” drive, all ideas are welcomed. Please contact us and share your ideas!

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. Thank you so much for this opportunity.
The USO of WI is an amazing organization and I am still surprised by how many people do not know about it. The USO of WI 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. It means a great deal to me and I know it means even more to my wife and two kids. Thank you for all that you do and I will continue spreading the word about this high class organization.
I just want to thank you, 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. Thank you so much for every thing you do! It definitely makes the a difference in the life of a soldier!
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.
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. Wayne Larrivee was the first one to spot our table and asked US to take a picture with him. Such an honor.
Attending a Brewers game means so much. It means we all can do something together, with our families, and create memories. We, all of us Soldiers, from many states (even this NYer!) can be united in our cheering for the home team as we are all Brewers fans regardless of where we call home.
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 Support of your office. I am grateful for your un-wavering support.
Thank you for being available to those who serve our country, to those who have served, and to those of us who love them!
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.
Great to see a place where I know I’m welcomed. It’s never easy leaving home, but even harder when you sit alone.
