Support the Department
The Department of Kinesiology is actively seeking philanthropic support in a
wide range of areas. Through private gifts we can provide scholarships for
deserving undergraduates, attract the best and brightest graduate students, and
provide support for new departmental initiatives like the Montoye-Nagle and
Safrit lecture series. We deeply appreciate the support we receive from loyal
alumni and friends. Sending a contribution, whatever its size, is a great way to
show your pride. Every gift makes a difference.
Through the University of Wisconsin Foundation, the official fundraising agency
for the University of Wisconsin-Madison, the Department of Kinesiology is
actively seeking gifts in the following areas:
There seems to be a never-ending supply of
original projects worthy of funding in the Department of Kinesiology: research,
outreach, special seminars and speakers, professional development, as well as
building projects. Each year, private contributions support some of these
projects. The new Montoye-Nagle Lecture and Safrit Lecture are projects we hope
will receive ongoing support.
Through the generosity of private gifts, the
Department is able to award multiple undergraduate and graduate scholarships.
Each reflects the particular interests of its donor.
Named endowed funds, endowed scholarships, and our
ultimate goal of endowed professorships are central to our fundraising efforts.
Endowments can provide guaranteed funds to support scholarships, research, and
instructional activities. If you have an interest in a named fund, please
