Wisconsin Naming Gift

On October 27, 2007 a group of UW alumni made history by creating a naming gift in honor of the state and university rather than a single donor. Instead of naming the School for perpetuity, they named it for 20 years, so that future naming gifts could impact the School for years to come. For 10 years, we have carried the name Wisconsin School of Business—a School defined not by individuals but by a tremendous partnership. On this special anniversary, we honor our entire community of donors whose gifts of every size make a difference in all that we do.
