Badgers Show Their Support on Day of the Badger

By Alumni Relations

April 15, 2019

On this special day of giving, Badgers everywhere showed their support for the Wisconsin School of Business and UW–Madison.

Thanks to the generosity of WSB donors and friends, we raised more than $320,000 to the Wisconsin School of Business Scholarship Fund, which helps support undergraduate and graduate student scholarships critical in helping us attract the best and brightest students.

Two generous match donors, Bruce Ellig (BBA ’59, MBA ’60) and Barry Gerhart (PhD ’85), doubled the impact of gifts by pledging a $150,000 match.

See how Badgers far and wide participated in Day of the Badger.

By the numbers:

50 states were represented in giving to UW–Madison

337 donors to WSB

230 made gifts of less than $100
