Our ambitious Day of the Badger goal is to raise at least $50,000 to reach our full-funding target for the Jay C. Nania Endowed Graduate Support Fund. The Department of Geoscience spends $500,000 annually of alumni gift funds for student scholarships, field camps, field trips, research, and new equipment. Our alumni are critical for sustaining these activities, which are central to our success. The first $25,000 in donations this year will be doubled thanks to generous matching funds from people who were close to Jay Nania. Every donation, small and large, not only moves us toward our goal, but improves the chances that GeoBadgers will retain last year’s honor as the top participating department in Day of the Badger.
