More than 120 donors support CALS students on Day of the Badger

Day of the Badger 2024 was held on April 16-17. This year, 121 donors made gifts to CALS, and almost $30,000 was raised. Thanks to a generous gift from Daniel Butterbrodt BS’87, $10,000 was unlocked when we reached 85 gifts. The money will directly support our students as they pursue undergraduate research, professional development, and community and network building.

The university as a whole saw the day as a success. More than 7,200 gifts were made to UW–Madison, raising close to $1.8 million. You can find more details at

Thanks to the alumni, faculty, staff and friends of CALS who contributed to the effort and participated on social media!
