Social Responsibility

The Madison Concourse Hotel and Governor’s Club has a long-standing reputation for being Madison’s hotel. Our ongoing fundraising sponsorships and donations are underlined by a commitment to create a true sense of community — both outside and inside the hotel. We embrace our responsibility of being a community leader by:

  • Hosting an annual children’s holiday party for over 250 area youth through The Dane County Boys and Girls Club and various Madison-area community centers. Our party includes a kids’ buffet, cookie decorating, entertainment, holiday portraits with Santa or the Grinch, a craft station and gifts. See a full photo gallery here!
  • Sponsoring an annual United Way Campaign and Day of Caring for hotel employees, we even won the Innovation Award for our in-lobby stationary bike marathon!
  • Donating hundreds of gift certificates yearly to non-profit organizations
  • Our ongoing “Hotel with a Heart” program, started in 1995, giving a special night away with a Governor’s Club room and dinner in the Dayton Street Grille to families caring for a person with a disability or other special needs while our friends at the Family Support and Resource center provide respite care for their loved one
  • Providing complimentary rooms to cancer treatment patients through the American Cancer Society
  • Donating food to Second Harvest food banks
  • Providing class space for literacy programs
  • Purchasing recycled products when possible
  • Donating used linens and furniture to local organizations and shelters
  • Encouraging hotel employees to volunteer with local community organizations
  • Supporting the arts through sponsorships and donations
