The University of Wisconsin Athletic Department annually funds the
scholarships and facility needs of its nearly 800 student-athletes in
23 sports. Since the department is a self-sustaining entity, the
generosity of individuals who annually contribute to UW Athletics is
essential for our student-athletes to compete at the highest level in
the areas of academics and athletics.
In the coming days, the
many donors, ticket holders, letter winners, alumni, friends, and fans
of Badger Athletics will receive a 2009 Badger Fund annual giving brochure .
The brochure outlines the Wisconsin Athletic Departments annual giving
program and provides details on all the outstanding benefits associated
with contributing to Wisconsin Athletics. Those donors who made a
contribution in 2008 will also receive an individualized contribution
summary along with the brochure.
In addition to impacting the
lives of student-athletes representing the University of Wisconsin,
donors to UW Athletics are provided with an array of benefits including
priority for requesting season and single game tickets ,
post season ticket request priority, as well as invitations to
exclusive events featuring Badger coaches and student-athletes such as
