Dane County Has a Dream

2019-02-07 DreamUp logoLast fall, TASC was invited to partner with We Care for Dane Kids on an innovative idea to raise the net income of 10,000 middle class households by 10% by 2020.

This challenge was presented by Schmidt Futures (think Eric Schmidt of Google) as the Alliance for the American Dream competition. The University of Wisconsin-Madison is participating as one of four universities across the country. UW established DreamUp Wisconsin within its Institute for Research on Poverty to generate creative solutions to complex social problems. Schmidt Futures will award a grant to the winning Alliance for the American Dream team to help fund one of these solutions.

We are excited to be part of one of the DreamUp Wisconsin finalist teams. We Care for Dane Kids proposes a multi-sector approach to make child care more affordable. TASC’s role in this project is to help more working parents take advantage of Dependent Care Flexible Spending Accounts—providing pre-tax savings to employers and employees. We look forward to the final pitch to Schmidt Futures this June.
