Community Support Guidelines & Submission Form

WPS Community Support Guidelines

WPS is committed to taking an active role in promoting the health and well-being of the communities our customers and employees call home.

Through sponsorships, cash donations, in-kind donations, and volunteerism, WPS supports initiatives focused on enhancing the health of the communities we serve. Our key areas of focus for community support include health issues, specifically women’s and children’s health, and support of our military and veterans.

WPS’ community support can take many forms, including:

  • Financial contributions (e.g., donations and event sponsorships)
  • Promotional item donations for events
  • Silent auction donations
  • Employee volunteering
  • Use of our office location parking lots/grassy areas and training rooms

We strongly encourage those seeking our support to submit applications in the fall of the year before an event occurs or a donation is needed.

Community Support Requirements

  • Non-profit organizations classified 501(c)(3), tax-exempt by the Internal Revenue Service.
  • One-year projects or annual support only.
  • Our key areas of focus for community support include health issues, specifically women’s and children’s health in Wisconsin, and support of our military and veterans.

Non-profit organizations must submit requests by completing the WPS Community Support Request Form or writing to:

Cole Phillips
Community Engagement Specialist
Wisconsin Physicians Service Insurance Corporation
P.O. Box 8190
Madison, WI 53708-8190

Community support requests will not be considered for the following and will be declined:

  • Individuals or individual foundations (e.g., individual fundraising events and activities).
  • Third-party team requests or organizational campaigns (e.g., United Way, Relay for Life, Breast Cancer 3-Days, etc.).
  • Political organizations and/or candidates.
  • Endowments or capital campaigns.
  • Solely to support an organization's salary expenses or other administrative costs.
  • Fraternal or labor organizations.

Submission Requirements

While every cause is worthy, WPS receives hundreds of requests each year. Unfortunately we are unable to partner with every organization we would like to support. We ask for your help in only submitting requests that fall within our community support focused areas.

Please note that even though you may have received a donation or sponsorship from WPS in the past, you must reapply in order to be considered.

All decisions made by the Community Relations Department are final.
