In 1975, Don Rashke founded a business to help our nation’s farmers and small businesses with their insurance needs. As the business grew, he began to realize they were missing out on tax-savings solutions and employee benefits options that were commonplace at large companies. The business transformed to meet this need and became Total Administrative Services Corporation (TASC). Dan learned the tricks of the trade working alongside his father and became TASC CEO and President in 1995. Despite setbacks, TASC grew into a leader in the industry as the nation’s largest privately-held Third Party Administrator. TASC now offers more than 21 innovative services. Customers in all 50 states are served by the TASC team, which boasts 8,000 field representatives and over 900 employed associates at the Madison campus and remote locations. TASC works hard for over 50 thousand businesses, and last year the company’s annual revenue exceeded $100 million.
Dan and Patti were each raised by caring, generous parents who instilled in them the responsibility to give back to the communities that promote their individual success. And when that success came, their philanthropic spirit shined through. In an attempt to strengthen the community in which they reside, Dan and Patti each serve on the boards of local organizations and have been supporting programs, services, capital campaigns, and events through TASC philanthropy efforts for decades.
Patti and Dan founded the Dan & Patti Rashke (TASC) Family Foundation in 2009 with the goal of magnifying their impact in the Greater Madison area and beyond while establishing a legacy of giving in their own family. The Rashke children now serve on the Foundation Board of Directors and actively participate in the grant-making process.
