The Badger Legacy Campaign

What is the Badger Legacy Campaign?

With cancellations and postponements across sports in 2020, the Wisconsin Badgers faced a critical financial challenge. The Badger Legacy Campaign was created to fund scholarships and programs that our 750+ student-athletes rely on to compete and develop at the highest level. We want to ensure we continue raising trophies, developing student-athletes that make us proud and we keep the world watching when we Jump Around.

Your Impact in 2021

In 2020, 7,764 donors participated in the Badger Legacy Campaign to help sustain Wisconsin Athletics' ability to support our student-athletes. While we are planning for a brighter financial outlook in 2021, we still need your support. The Badger Legacy Campaign will continue with a chance for participating donors to earn double credit towards their Annual Giving Level while supporting Wisconsin Badger student-athletes into a new season.
