The Charitable Memory Aid

You may establish an endowment during your life with an outright gift of various assets or through a plan that pays you income for the balance of your life. You may also establish it through a bequest or by naming our organization as beneficiary of life insurance, a retirement fund, or an investment account.

Systems & Network Administrator

The Wisconsin Foundation and Alumni Association, the private fundraising and alumni relations organization for UW-Madison, is recruiting for a Systems & Network Administrator to join our Information Technology Department. The Systems & Network Administrator position is responsible for providing company-wide administration and support for three critical areas; servers infrastructure, network infrastructure, and application administration. This role requires someone that has a nice breadth and depth of server and network infrastructure, but also has experience or interest being involved in administration of key business applications. 

Nicholas Family Provides $50 Million to Inspire Scholarship Support

This week, Ab and Nancy Nicholas committed $50 million to inspire other donors to create undergraduate and athletic scholarships and graduate fellowships for UW-Madison students. The donation, a one-to-one matching fund, is the second-largest household gift in the university’s history, alongside the gift made in November by John and Tashia Morgridge, which supports faculty.

Why It Helps Us to Know About Your Legacy Gift

Every year our organization receives bequests from individuals who did not inform us in advance that they had included us in their wills. We are extremely grateful for these gifts because they enable us to continue the work that was obviously important to the donors. At the same time, it would be helpful for our organization to know about the gifts ahead of time.
