The inspiration for WPS came from filling a need in our community—a commitment to affordable health care for Wisconsin veterans. From day one, helping others has been the driving force at WPS. WPS partners with and contributes to many philanthropic organizations. True to our mission, we focus on health and wellness, especially of:

  • Women.
  • Children.
  • Seniors.
  • Military and veterans.
  • Underserved populations.

WPS does this work in several ways: through corporate donations, through our WPS Charitable Foundation, and through the generosity of our employees.

Our commitment to veterans continued to grow in 2021. WPS established a “Military and Veteran Inclusion Lead” on our Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion team. Our goal is to attract, recruit, onboard, develop, engage, and retain service members, military, veterans, and their families. We have also established veterans scholarships and provide support on veterans Honor Flights.

It’s our responsibility to be good stewards of the environment. WPS has made being greener a top priority. In ways big and small, we’re increasing energy efficiency of our facilities and operations and taking on sustainability initiatives. We’re also reducing our footprint to adjust to more of our employees working remotely.
