More Ways to Give
Sustaining donations are our favorite kind of gift because they’re convenient for you and Clean Wisconsin. When you become a Sustaining Donor, it reduces paper and postage costs, divides your generous contribution into manageable monthly, quarterly or annual payments and provides Clean Wisconsin with a reliable stream of financial support so we can focus more on our work to protect Wisconsin’s air and water and less on fundraising. To get started, choose your donation frequency on our secure online donation page. You can change your donation at any time.
