The announcement today of $250 million being raised for the University of Wisconsin-Madison through the John and Tashia Morgridge Match program is truly inspirational. At a pivotal time for the university, this effort supports a critical mass of new endowed professorships that will help attract and retain the very best talent to Wisconsin.
Thanks to the inspiring lead gift from John and Tashia, many others answered the call to strengthen UW-Madison – even exceeding the high expectations we all had for the effort. We are intensely proud to be part of this community, and we thank the Morgridges for their remarkable vision.
Please join me in congratulating the Morgridges on their successful campaign.
