School of Human Ecology - How Gifts Make a Difference

CHALLENGE GIFT AVAILABLE: Kitty Smith is excited to invite you to join her in a $10,000 challenge. The first 150 gifts to the School of Human Ecology during Day of the Badger will help unlock an additional $10,000 gift toward the School's greatest needs.

Your gift supports programs that provide scholarship assistance to undergraduate and graduate students, enrich research opportunities for world-class faculty, and build a stronger future for the School of Human Ecology.

"When we are tested, human ecologists rise to the challenge with generosity, creativity, and rigor. We are fueled by an agenda full of strength and possibility. Your gift today can help us meet those moments of great need and new opportunities."
