Badgers Give Back
Last year, Wisconsin student-athletes completed over 3,500 hours of community service and attended over 100 events benefiting Wisconsin schools, charities and organizations.
Wisconsin Athletics is committed to providing opportunities for its student-athletes to develop and grow through the exploration of areas of social relevance while responding to the needs of the greater Madison community.
To achieve this goal, Wisconsin Athletics instituted a new outreach program, Badgers Give Back, in August 2012. It includes new request processes for student-athlete appearances and donation requests in an effort to better serve you, the fans, and the greater Madison community.
The UW Athletic Department has concentrated its philanthropic efforts and the Badgers Give Back program around the following areas:
The Badgers are committed to promoting learning and academic achievement amongst the students of the Madison community.
UW Athletics supports any efforts that encourage physical well-being and active lifestyles.
We strive to foster youth and family participation and activity.
A Better Community:
We are committed to events that make our community a better place to live and to helping to enhance the services our community can provide.
If your event aligns with our mission, we want to hear from you!
To assist you with the request process, we have developed clear guidelines that adhere to NCAA compliance regulations. We encourage you to read all of the guidelines before submitting your request.
If you are interested in having a student-athlete make appearance at your event, please visit the "Student-Athlete Appearance" link of our Badgers Give Back page. To submit a request for an in-kind item or donation, please visit the "Donation" link.
If you have any questions or feedback, please don't hesitate to contact our Community Relations Coordinator, Kayla Gross, by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
We look forward to working with our fans and community partners to improve the Madison community we all call home! On Wisconsin!
