Support the Libraries on Day of the Badger 2023!

March 3, 2023

The Libraries are excited to once again participate in WFAA’s annual Day of the Badger on March 28-29th. Day of the Badger is a day for all alumni, students, and friends throughout Badger nation to make a far-reaching impact in a short amount of time. It’s a great chance to invest in your passion, show UW spirit, and connect with the Badger community. This is also a wonderful opportunity for the Libraries to reach out to those who are passionate about UW-Madison and want to support the world-class teaching, learning, and research that happen here.

We are thrilled to announce the Libraries have secured a matching gift from UW-Madison alumnus and long-time Libraries supporter Stu Baker (‘80). Through his generosity, the first $5,000 raised will be matched dollar-for-dollar. We are grateful for Stu’s commitment and look forward to the additional engagement this match will encourage.  

I invite you to join the UW-Madison Libraries in celebrating this year’s Day of the Badger on March 28-29th.

How you can help:

  • Make a gift in support of the UW-Madison Libraries
  • Share UW spirit by joining the conversation on social media at #dayofthebadger
    • Proudly sport (and snap a photo of) Badger attire
    • Share favorite UW-Madison and UW-Madison Libraries memories, photos, and stories
    • Celebrate the impact Badgers, including you, have on the world 

Everyone who loves UW-Madison, and the Libraries are welcome and encouraged to participate! With your help, we can continue to meet the evolving needs of our students, faculty, and researchers. The Libraries provide the research materials, services, spaces, and unique expertise which are fundamental for the instruction, discovery, and scholarship that occur here at the University. When you give to the Libraries, you ensure our students and faculty have access to the collections and support they need to get their work done. 

I hope you will join me on this special day to celebrate our world-class University, our distinctive research libraries, and our outstanding campus community! 

On, Wisconsin
