How Can You Help Milwaukee County UW Extension Keep Doing Its Work?

The Milwaukee County UW-Extension is a partnership between the UW system and Milwaukee County. Through this partnership we are able to use the research and network of the UW system to help our communities in Milwaukee County thrive.  In order to keep doing our work we need the county to continue its annual re-commitment through their budget process. You can help us keep that partnership healthy by sharing your story at one of the public hearings in October.


What does sharing your story look like?

Take two minutes to:

  • Thank the supervisors for supporting UW-Extension in the past.
  • Explain how Milwaukee County UW- Extension has impacted your life or your clients’
    • A quick personal story is usually effective
  • Why is the service we provide important to you and your community?
  • What would happen if you or your community didn’t have those services anymore?
  • Wrap up by saying UW-Extension is vital and ask the county to grant the UWEX 2018 Budget Request.
