Help shape the future of health care

You can help redefine health care through your gift to Wisconsin Medicine, a philanthropic campaign supporting the groundbreaking research and the patient experience at UW Health and the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health.

Your support of Wisconsin Medicine makes it possible to go beyond excellence to achieve extraordinary levels of:

  • Patient care

  • Groundbreaking medical research

  • Training of our next generation of doctors and other medical professionals

  • Addressing health disparities

Wisconsin Medicine is a partnership between UW Health, the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health and the University of Wisconsin Foundation and Alumni Association.

Make a donation

When you make a donation to the SwedishAmerican Foundation, your gifts will be used as you wish. You may choose to support:

  • Unrestricted: Unrestricted gifts permit the SwedishAmerican Foundation to use the contribution where the need is greatest.

  • Restricted: Restricted gifts support our services in a specific area. Oncology, cardiology, pediatrics and women's and children's health are just a few of the areas from which you may choose.

  • Neighborhood revitalization: These gifts help restore the neighborhood surrounding SwedishAmerican. Funds may be used to renovate homes, offer financial assistance to homebuyers or purchase property to be improved.

  • Uncompensated patient care: These gifts allow SwedishAmerican to continue providing service to everyone, regardless of financial ability.


Fun ways to support important causes

There are many ways that community groups and businesses support Wisconsin Medicine’s work. Golf outings, school events and neighborhood fundraisers offer fun and creative ways to be active in the community while helping those who need our care.
