Each spring, the WIS community comes together to raise crucial funds for our financial aid program with a celebratory event and online auction.

WIS is strongly committed to maintaining socioeconomic diversity within our community, and financial aid enables us to extend the benefits of a WIS education to students for whom it would otherwise be out of reach.

Despite being unable to gather together as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, last year's celebration of community raised an inspiring $269,700 to benefit our financial aid program.

We hope you will join us on Saturday, May 15 for Gather in the Garden. 

While we likely will not be able to gather in person, we look forward to a virtual evening to celebrate our community and raise important funds during these uncertain times. There are many ways to play a role in the success of Gather in the Garden, whether donating an item or experience for our Online Auction (launching Saturday, May 8), raising your paddle to support Fund-A-Student, becoming an individual or corporate event Benefactor, or purchasing a ticket!

Visit bidpal.net/wis to learn more about how you can support Gather in the Garden.

If you are interested in learning more about how you can volunteer, please contact Events Manager Marcela Churchill at marcela.churchill@wis.edu.
