Is Our Driving Spirit

Forward Thinking

It’s all part of the Wisconsin Idea: as the world’s needs change, the University of Wisconsin–Madison works to help it meet those needs. The Wisconsin Foundation and Alumni Association is your way to help the UW make its transformative impact on the world. Through involvement and financial contributions, you expand the university’s ability to educate, conduct research, and perform outreach.

All Ways Forward

In fiscal 2017–18, WFAA continued to pursue the goals laid out in the All Ways Forward comprehensive campaign for UW–Madison. Tens of thousands more alumni mobilized in support of their alma mater; hundreds of millions more dollars went into building the university’s future. In this year’s annual report, read how your efforts — and those of other UW alumni and friends — have improved, enhanced, and strengthened UW–Madison over the last year.
