Limnology - How Gifts Make a Difference

MATCHING GIFT AVAILABLE: Thanks to a generous donor to the Center for Limnology, your gift will be matched dollar for dollar — up to $4,000 — during Day of the Badger.

Your support helps us conduct crucially important science and inspires training for the next generation of educators and leaders in this field so that we can innovate knowledgeable solutions with the general public, elected officials, and resource managers. The tradition of world-class research in limnology began right here at UW–Madison in 1875. Your support has kept the Center for Limnology at the forefront of the freshwater sciences ever since.

Your donation on Day of the Badger will have double the impact due to a matching gift from our generous supporters.

Why We Need Your Support

Freshwater is the essence of life and Earth’s most vital resource. Yet we are in the midst of a freshwater crisis. Freshwater ecosystems are threatened by climate change, declining fisheries, invasive species, and pollution. Addressing these emerging challenges requires cutting-edge science and investment in the next generation of limnologists and problem solvers.

The Center for Limnology is a global leader in freshwater science. We conduct research across Wisconsin and the world that endeavors to understand changes to our environment, find solutions to these important problems and help confront these challenges head on.
