Badger Parent Club

Parents and families are integral partners in supporting their student’s academic and personal success. To enhance and continue that support, the Badger Parent Club has been created to foster the connection with your Badger and the UW Campus.

Through a minimum annual gift of $250, you will help to improve the overall student experience by supporting all areas of Student Affairs. Gifts received will assist students through an “Angel Fund,” allowing students who otherwise cannot afford it to participate in the Wisconsin Experience. Families in the Badger Parent Club will receive the unique membership benefits laid out below.

Areas of Support

Health and Well-being

Healthy minds, bodies and communities. We view health and well-being through an equity and social justice lens to include personal physical health, mental health, and connection to a safe campus where all students can thrive.
