Support CUB Outreach, Donate to The Big Share

CUB is gearing up for a big one-day fundraising campaign, The Big Share, which will take place on Tuesday, March 1.

We’re excited to announce that friends of CUB will match donations dollar for dollar up to $2,500 in this year’s The Big Share. Help us reach our goal of $5,000!

CUB is one of 70 nonprofits that are members of Community Shares of Wisconsin looking to raise more than $500,000 together at this year’s event.

With a minimum donation of $5, it is easy to get involved – and it only takes a few minutes to donate as part of The Big Share.

CUB has been involved with Community Shares, a 51-year-old network of organizations standing up against injustice, for decades. Community Shares organizations advance human rights, fair housing, criminal justice reform, civic engagement, social and environmental justice, and a host of other causes.

For 42 years, CUB’s championed fairness for utility customers – homeowners, renters and small businesses across the state and given them a voice.

This year with your help we’re looking to build on our efforts to improve energy security, which is an ongoing challenge exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic and by volatile and surging natural gas prices hitting customers’ heating bills. We helped utilities craft forgiveness programs that helped utility customers in dire straits move along the path toward paying their bills consistently.

Your donation will help CUB advance its work this year addressing energy security. Specifically, you’ll:

  • Help our experts craft policies to improve fairness in utility rates and that provide relief for Wisconsinites who are struggling to make ends meet.
  • Help us produce educational materials in English and Spanish.
  • Help us organize Utility Bill Clinics to help utility customers save on their energy bills.

With your help we will make The Big Share 2022 a huge success!
