Your Gift Makes a Difference...

Thank you for your interest in supporting the Waisman Center. Your gift will improve the lives of children and adults with developmental disabilities and neurodegenerative diseases, some of human health’s most challenging conditions.

Your generosity enables us to advance the boundaries of science and provide critical treatment and services to individuals and families who seek our help.

There are many ways to support the Waisman Center. Unrestricted gifts benefit our areas of greatest need and strengthen our areas of greatest opportunity. Targeted giving options allow you to direct your contribution to specific programs and opportunities that support the mission of the Waisman Center.

We also appreciate planned gifts or gifts of stock. Contact Lisa Karnes or Albee Messing (contact information below) with any questions.

Donate online today, or make a check payable to "The University of Wisconsin Foundation" and write "Waisman Center" in the memo line. Feel free to include additional requests in writing if you wish to direct your gift to a specific fund or area of research at the Waisman Center.
