Double Your Impact
Thanks to a generous $100,000 match from the American Family Dreams
Foundation, every dollar you pledge during Birdies for Health will go
twice as far!
The UW Carbone Cancer Center is committed to beating cancer through research, prevention, and treatment with an ultimate goal of dramatically reducing the burden of cancer on our patients and communities.
At the UW Health Transplant program, patients receive the gift of life every year through amazing advances in heart, lung, kidney, liver, pancreas and multi-organ transplantation. Your support will create hope and save lives.
What started in 2018 as an effort to support the UW’s fight against Alzheimer’s disease has grown to make an even bigger impact. Birdies for Health is a fundraising program designed to support five causes within UW Health and the UW School of Medicine and Public Health by generating contributions for every birdie made during the American Family Insurance Championship. And, 100 percent of the gifts raised will go to the participating causes — helping to improve research and treatment and make a difference in the lives of people in Wisconsin and beyond.
