FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
HOW DO I DESIGNATE MY CONTRIBUTION TO ACS?
It's easy! Just check the area on your pledge card that says Access to Community Services. Specify the total dollar amount that you wish to donate in the box.
CAN I SPECIFY JUST ONE ACS ORGANIZATION TO RECEIVE MY GIFT?
Yes. It's up to you to decide if you would like your donation to be distributed to each of the ACS agencies or only one.
WHERE DO MY DOLLARS GO?
Ninety-five percent of the dollars we receive go directly to help people with disabilities and other challenges. One hundred percent of the contribution to ACS stay right in Dane County.
WHAT IS AN UMBRELLA ORGANIZATION?
An umbrella, sometimes called a federation or association, is an organization that represents groups of nonprofit charities in the SECC Statewide campaign. Some umbrellas bring together charities with common missions, such as health care or environmental conservation. Others are associations of nonprofits with wide-ranging interests.
To participate in this campaign, a charity must belong to an umbrella organization, and both the charity and the umbrella must meet the campaign eligibility requirements set by the Wisconsin Department of Administration.
