The University and the Foundation join forces in a public-private partnership that benefits campus, its schools, colleges, departments and programs.
The Foundation would have no reason to exist without the University. The University would have far fewer resources without the Foundation.
The Foundation, working closely with you, its campus partners, raises money to support school, college and campus priorities, including scholarships, professorships, building projects and research programs. In 2011, the UW Foundation transferred $212.1 million of gift money and investment income to the UW-Madison.
