A Workplace Giving Campaign is a company-sponsored fundraising drive where employees can contribute to UPAF, have a fun, rewarding way to increase employee engagement & support the performing arts in Southeastern Wisconsin.
Help us celebrate 50 years of making our community a better place. Whether you are part of a Workplace Giving Campaign, raise pledges for the UPAF Ride for the Arts or make an individual gift, please give to UPAF today!

The performing arts have a real and meaningful effect on the lives of thousands of people in Southeastern Wisconsin every year. Whether it’s a child finding her voice, an elderly man reconnecting with music or a mother watching her son come out of his shell, these stories show us just how important the arts are to our well-being.
