Non-profit organization ‘Dairy Cares’ closes in on $1million in donations
April 30, 2018

A non-profit organization founded several years ago by leaders in the dairy industry may soon reach a huge milestone. Over the last seven years, sponsors of Dairy Cares of Wisconsin have collectively raised over $847,000, and group organizers say they are on pace to reach seven figures in 2018.

“The dairy community’s support for Children’s Hospital has been nothing short of amazing, and we’ve seen the generous spirit of our farmers and businesses through their contributions to Dairy Cares thus far,” says Jim Ostrom, Dairy Cares co-founder and dairyman. “We confidently believe our total gift will meet and exceed $1 million this year.”

Nearly every dollar donated to the organization goes directly to the hospital’s general fund. Ostrom says these funds, which are made on behalf of the dairy community and its supporting industries, represents a heart-felt commitment to positively impacting Wisconsin children and their families who seek the medical excellence provided at the renowned pediatric care center during the toughest of times.

The Dairy Cares committee chose Children’s Hospital as their recipient because of its broad reach. Headquartered in Milwaukee, the facility provides statewide care through 40 different locations.
