Share the Wonderful Some people have an alma mater. You have something more.

Wow.  Wacky.  Witty.  Winter. Whimsical.

Wonderful.

That’s UW-Madison. 

Our alumni have stories, photos and memories.  And we want to hear about that wonderful.

For the first time ever, the University is launching a new multi-media effort to encourage alumni to support their alma mater through an annual gift. Your stories matter.

Share your experiences and more: www.sharethewonderful.org.

Collectively your gifts, no matter the size, make a difference. Gifts help recruit outstanding faculty, support ground-breaking research and provide life-changing experiences for Badgers. Your annual support ensures tomorrow's students are prepared to make a good living and lead a good life.

The campaign runs from September 15 to October 31, and I invite you to designate your annual gift to the College of Letters & Science Annual Fund.

Why does the University need your support now more than ever?  Read more in this fall'sOn Wisconsin: Madison Calling.

So go ahead and share all the things that make UW-Madison wonderful. We can't wait to see them.
