The Wisconsin Hospitals State PAC & Conduit closed out its 2021 fundraising campaign at 105% of its $325,000 goal, raising $339,930 and setting a new record for annual fundraising. The campaign also reached its aggressive, new goal in 2021 of engaging 300 individual contributors, a 20% increase in participation over 2020. The overall average individual contribution in 2021 was $1,133. Of the 300 contributors, 91 were first-time contributors with an average contribution of $317.
"Thanks to the strong dedication and commitment of our state's health care leaders, the Wisconsin Hospitals State PAC & Conduit was not only able to exceed its fundraising goal, but also dramatically increase individual participation in 2021," said Mike Wallace, 2021 chair of the WHA Advocacy Committee. "Engaging more individuals in political advocacy is crucial for sustaining and growing this important program, and the growth in 2021 is extremely encouraging," Wallace added.
Fundraising efforts for 2022 will officially kick off just prior to WHA's Virtual Advocacy Day on March 23. Individuals can submit contributions before March 23 online at www.whconduit.com.
