This one-day conference for donors and nonprofit leaders focuses on effective giving and partnerships with others to strategically impact communities and education. 

Over many years UW-Madison retirees have been some of the most generous and thoughtful donors to the University and community. At the Forum, you will learn from and share your insights with national and state philanthropists, UW faculty and nonprofit leaders. An active dialogue will be encouraged!

The theme “Women. Philanthropy. Democracy. What Now?” focuses on what all Americans strive for as active citizens and the essential role of philanthropy today and moving forward. Sponsored the UW Foundation’s Women’s Philanthropy Council since 1990, the Forum is open to the public for the first time this year. Women, men and families are invited to attend.

Join the conversation with 17 speakers including national leaders Wendy Steele, founder of Impact 100; Joan Johnson, author of “Funding Feminism: Monied Women, Philanthropy and the Women’s Movement, 1870-1967;” Sondra Shaw-Hardy, co-founder of the Women’s Philanthropy Institute; and Dr. Cora Marrett, past associate director of the National Science Foundation and UWRA member. 

Wisconsin and UW-Madison philanthropists speaking include Lea Culver, Culver’s Foundation; Julie Bauer, Alliant Energy Foundation; Diane Ballweg, Endres Foundation; Anne Martino; Dorothy O’Brien; and Debbie Cervenka. Nonprofit leaders and UW-Madison faculty speakers include Prof. Mary Beth Collins, Prof. Susan Cook, and Prof. Laura Dresser; Mary Jean Huston, director of the Wisconsin Nature Conservancy; Bob Sorge, president of the Madison Community Foundation; and UW Foundation’s Martha Taylor and Bobette Heller.

Join us for a remarkable day!
