About Us

In 2010, a group of friends — primarily from the dairy and agriculture sectors — decided it was time for the Wisconsin dairy industry to raise funds to help others.  As a result, we formed Dairy Cares of Wisconsin.

In 2023, we found ourselves approaching the $3 million lifetime raised milestone. Our hope is to surpass that amount in 2024.

Children’s Wisconsin, a world-class statewide health system, continues to need our support … in fact, now more than ever. Our goal is to provide support with funding for cures of childhood diseases and to help children and parents cope with the pain, stress and worry caused by a serious diagnosis. 

While the funds raised by Dairy Cares aid in the daily operation of the medical & health system, two projects stand out:

  • In 2022, Children’s Wisconsin-Fox Valley introduced the Dairy Cares Physical Therapy/Occupational Therapy space, which will help youngsters regain critical skills as part of their ongoing treatment plans.
  • In 2018, Children’s Wisconsin-Milwaukee launched the state-of-the-art Dairy Cares Simulation Lab, which gives medical professionals a safe venue to learn and sharpen their skills before using them in the field

We will continue our campaign to help children and families in need. And we look forward to sharing more information about our 2024 campaign in the future!

When we look at all we have accomplished during this journey, we are humbled and deeply grateful for your commitment to changing the odds for children and families who face some very tough challenges.  The dairy industry has been rewarding to so many of us and we hope you can help us give a little back. 

Please take the time to review our  sponsorship opportunities.  Our various levels of support include a variety of ways to demonstrate your profound support and have a positive impact on children throughout our communities.
