Your Gift Matters
Wisconsin has a wealth of water: 6.4 million acres of Lakes Michigan and Superior, 15,000 inland lakes, 32,000 miles of streams, more than 5 million acres of wetlands and 1.2 million billion gallons of groundwater.
Through the Wisconsin Sea Grant and Water Resources Institute Fund, you play a direct role in safeguarding and sustainably using these aquatic treasures.
Tax-deductible gifts made to this fund support multidisciplinary research, education and outreach. Sea Grant and the Water Resources Institute have already:
- Refined methodology to pinpoint the sources of contamination in private wells across the state protecting the health of families.
- Earned a U.S. patent on a method to raise yellow perch year-round and meet family and restaurant demand for the popular fish.
- Made progress in the battle against the more than 180 non-native aquatic species now at home in the Great Lakes, causing economic and environmental disruption.
There is so much more to be done and your support makes it possible:
For nearly 70 years, the UW Foundation has been the official gift-receiving arm for the University of Wisconsin-Madison, and other schools within the University of Wisconsin System.
