This page will be updated frequently to provide up-to-date information on Global Partners fundraising events, volunteer opportunities and informational meetings. 

The Global Partners program is funded through philanthropy and fueled by volunteers! Many individuals and businesses support the activities of the program through their ongoing financial and volunteer support. Additionally, several fundraising events take place throughout the year to raise funds for the healthcare, educational and community development activities in each of our partner communities. Please email or call 608-775-3833 if you have any questions or would like to get involved in an upcoming event.
