MADISON, Wis. -- The University of Wisconsin Athletic Department is a financially self-sustaining entity that annually funds the scholarships and facility needs of the over 800 student-athletes in 23 sports.
The generosity of individuals who annually contribute to Wisconsin Athletics is critical to remain competitive both within the Big Ten Conference and nationally. Donors to Wisconsin Athletics provide Badger student-athletes the opportunity to achieve success in the classroom, in competition, and in the community.
In the coming days, the many donors, ticket holders, letterwinners, alumni, friends, and fans of Wisconsin Athletics will receive a 2014 Wisconsin Athletics Donor Guide. This guide provides information on the various ways to contribute to Wisconsin Athletics as well as details of the outstanding benefits associated with being a donor.
Director of Athletics, Barry Alvarez said, "Thanks to our generous and loyal donors, Wisconsin student-athletes are provided the opportunity to compete with the best in the nation on the field and in the classroom. We thank you for your continued annual support of our student-athletes who make us all proud to be a part of Wisconsin Athletics,"
In addition to impacting the lives of Badger student-athletes, donors to UW Athletics are provided with various benefits including priority for requesting tickets and parking, and special event invitations. UW Athletics encourages all donors to make their gifts by April 30, 2014, to ensure opportunity for all benefits offered this year.
