ENTRY INTEGRITY: Those individuals that qualify for the $1,000 Cash Prize Drawing are automatically and systematically (not manually) entered into the drawing as their pledges are processed. Participating public sector campaigns do provide individual donor information, which is audited, so public sector qualifiers can be assured they will be included and there is little room for human error. Companies, who do not typically provide individual pledge information, may submit a list of those employees who have qualified. Those names are added to the data base of automatic qualifiers. Additionally, those people who submitted an entry outside of the automatic qualification process are also entered into the data base. Although we cannot publish the list of all those who qualify, if a workplace campaign requests a list of qualifiers from their own company, United Way of Inner Wisconsin can provide it prior to the drawing, but after all pledges received by November 17, 2017 have been posted. Please call 715-421-0390 for more information.
