Support water research, outreach and education this spring.

The two-day campaign, which lasts precisely 1,848 minutes to honor the year of the university’s founding, invites alumni, students and friends of the university to donate to the programs of their choice. This year, we hope you’ll choose Wisconsin Sea Grant and the Water Resources Institute.

Wisconsin is a state rich with water, but those waters face many challenges. To find solutions, Wisconsin Sea Grant and the Water Resources Institute are funding research on water quality and emerging contaminants like PFAS, helping coastal communities plan around flooding and bluff erosion, and inspiring the next generation of water professionals through paid, hands-on internship and fellowship opportunities.

If you believe in our mission, we welcome you to participate. Your gift helps us continue our ambitious and impactful research, outreach and educational efforts that — in keeping with the Wisconsin Idea — benefit the state as a whole.
