We rely on the generosity of people like you—our grateful patients, friends, and many others from the community who help us advance the important work of the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology and its six divisions. Your financial support helps us provide our patients with the most compassionate, highest quality and state-of-art care available; educate the next generation of out-standing obstetrician gynecologists; and take our cutting-edge research from the lab bench to the bedside as quickly as possible.

Opportunities for Support


Established Funds


The Gloria E. Sarto, MD, PhD Chair in Women’s Health & Health Equity Fund


This $1.5 million endowed chair will allow us to recruit and retain the top physician or PhD researcher whose work is focused on advancing equity in women’s health through access to health care, bio-medical research and academic advancement for underrepresented scholars. We are a leader in this area because Dr. Sarto has called the University of Wisconsin-Madison her academic home for most of her life. Donate now
