    Connexus Cares

    With so many people in need of food, shelter, and care, we’re committed to supporting the organizations that keep our communities healthy and thriving. Why? Because Connexus Cares.

    Connexus Cares Makes $1 Million Donation to Wausau Community Partners Campus

    Connexus Cares is proud to announce our largest donation to date: $1 million to the Wausau Community Partners Campus (CPC). CPC is a newly formed non-profit center with the goal of offering functional, collaborative, shared spaces that house organizations with a mission-driven purpose and focus on food, clothing, shelter, medical care, mental health, and social wellbeing.

    More than 15,000 members of the Marathon County community are projected to benefit from the services provided within CPC each year. Connexus Cares is excited to play a role in the formative stages of CPC and looks forward to seeing the positive changes it brings in the coming years.

    To read more about this donation, see the press release in our Media Center. You can also learn more about how CPC will help our communities.

    Real Stories: Turning Dreams Into Realities

    We’ve helped the organizations we support not only sustain their offerings, but expand upon them as well. This means fewer children will go hungry and more families will have a safe, comfortable place to sleep at night.

    But don’t just take our word for it. Listen to some of the charities we’ve impacted.

    Stepping Up: How Connexus Employees Give Back

    While we’ve provided financial support to many charities, we’ve also encouraged our employees to help others in need. We offer all employees Volunteer Time Off (VTO) hours to support their local non-profits.
