Give Back

The generosity of alumni and friends is responsible for much of the University’s progress. Private funding will often provide the extra support needed to launch new programs or to strengthen established areas of study. Contributions for scholarships and fellowships help students achieve their educational goals, and gifts to support building construction and renovation projects helps provide state-of-the art teaching and instructional space.

fisc_givingWhile you occasionally hear about million dollar gifts in the news, smaller gifts have a tendency to go unnoticed by the mass media. They are very much noticed at the University of Wisconsin. In fact, in 2008, gifts of $100 or less combined to total $2.4 million in support for the University. These gifts empower the University to continue its tradition of teaching, research and outreach- ever expanding the boundaries of the Wisconsin Idea.

By designating your gift to the Farm and Industry Short Course program, you can be sure that your dollars will directly support and benefit the Short Course program and its students and facilities.

Naming Opportunities

Gifts that qualify for a naming opportunity are a meaningful and lasting way to impact life at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. The gift can serve as an avenue for paying tribute to a loved one or deserving organization.

Naming opportunities within the Farm and Industry Short Course are available for endowed scholarships, capital projects and renovations, and unrestricted program support.
