More than $1.7 million was raised to help address the greatest needs on the UW-Madison campus during the Wisconsin Foundation and Alumni Association’s third annual Day of the Badger event April 5-6.
More than 5,000 gifts were pledged to more than 100 programs including:
· Chancellor’s Annual Fund: This fund empowers the chancellor to address the UW’s most urgent needs as they arise and evolve.
· Emergency Student Support: By lessening the burden of unexpected expenses, this fund ensures that UW students are able to live the Wisconsin Experience no matter their economic background.
· Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion: Gifts to the Raimey-Noland Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Fund support campus wide efforts to promote a welcoming community at UW-Madison.
