Generosity Challenge for Children's Wisconsin
April 11-30, 2021

When people think of Children's Wisconsin, many think of a world-class hospital and nationally ranked clinical care. But in order for Wisconsin's kids to be the healthiest in the nation, Children’s takes care of the whole child. To do this, they go beyond the hospital walls into neighborhoods, communities and schools to reach kids where they are and give them the kind of care they need. Because a healthy child is a child who's physical, mental and social wellness is intact and nurtured.

Make your financial support of Children's  Wisconsin go even further! For every $2 donated through this online campaign the hosting Thrivent Member Networks South WI and East WI & Upper MI Regions will add $1 up to an additional $10,000. Thrivent will also cover all online processing fees so 100% of your donation goes to the cause*.

*Thrivent will pay up to $300,000 in online processing fees per calendar year for personal donations made through Thrivent's online giving platform. No products will be sold.
