With your generous contributions, UniverCity Alliance can improve the sustainability, resilience, livability and general wellbeing of our Wisconsin communities. Your financial support also ensures UW-Madison students put what they learn in the classroom into practice.

In this student-produced video, alumni John Holton and Patrick Thiele share why they invest in UniverCity Alliance.

"(UniverCity Year) benefits the students who get to get real world experience in something that’s meaningful. It’s great for the university because it humanizes Madison, and it helps the communities measurably."

Help us continue pushing the resources at UW-Madison beyond the borders of campus and throughout the entire state. Your support will lead to local and global impacts by improving the places and lives of people throughout Wisconsin and the world.

"UniverCity Year is the embodiment of the Wisconsin Idea and what we do should be directly beneficial to the state, but we have overwhelming demand for projects and we need to expand the programming. Your donations can go a long ways."

John Holton
