UWDC's first goal is to achieve divestment at UW-Madison, but students, alumni, and community members across the system are fighting for fossil fuel divestment and a just, sustainable reinvestment at nearly every UW campus.
FOLLOWing THE MONEY at UW-Madison
Here's something the Wisconsin Foundation and Alumni Association (WFAA) won't tell you when you donate to your alma mater—UW-Madison is strategically profiting off of the destruction of our planet and its people. As of 2018, the university had $124,785,961 invested in the fossil fuel industry.
UW-Madison alumni donate to the WFAA.
The WFAA invests donations in fossil fuel stocks that generate additional revenue for the university.
The fossil fuel industry uses this money to expand their operations.
