There are many opportunities to support the Department of Urology. We are deeply grateful for the generosity shown to us by our benefactors and many contributors.


Wisconsin Urologic Research Institute


In 2012 the Department of Urology unveiled ambitious plans to create a urologic research institute to expand the Department’s largescale basic science and translational research, despite shrinking funding from federal health agencies. We are in the process of fundraising to establish a large endowment whose income will fund research “grants” to support medium- to large-scale projects. Questions should be directed to the UW Foundation Director of Development at the Department of Urology at (608) 262-0043 or e-mail


Endowed Professors and Chairs


These funds allow the Department of Urology to recruit and retain top-notch faculty researchers. A named faculty position is a perfect way to bestow an honor on a worthy individual, while creating an everlasting source of academic progress and honoring the memory of the donor eternally.


Endowed Lectureships


These named funds directly advance the knowledge of our entire faculty and staff in an immediate and continuing way.


Mission Specific Funds


The Department of Urology has established funds for general support of each of our mission areas. We welcome one-time and annual gifts of all sizes. These funds provide incremental opportunities for our faculty, staff and trainees and are an important part of our philanthropic efforts. Every contribution makes a difference and the aggregate effect of multiple donors is substantial.
