  • MADISON, Wis. (1/24/12)--People throughout Wisconsin partnered with Madison, Wis.-based Heartland CU to raise more than $25,000 in Heartland's Give Local challenge. The credit union offered a 25% increase for every donation to six local non-profits, up to $1,000 per charity. As the campaign progressed, Heartland raised the bar and increased the match to 50%. It also donated every time someone chose to "Like" Heartland's Facebook pages, which raised another $1,500. The effort helped these local causes:  Gio's Garden, which provides respite to families with special-needs children; Center for Families, which supports Dane County families; Community Groundworks, which connects people to nature and local food at Troy Gardens; InHealth Clinic, which provides free health care for uninsured people; Madison Dental Initiative, which offers free dental care to homeless families and individuals; and Southwest Tech, which supports students with a food pantry, gas cards and scholarships.
