Our sincere thanks to the many alumni and friends who have generously supported the University of Wisconsin's Department of Psychology. As State funds to support the University have steadily declined in recent years, we are increasing reliant on private gifts to ensure that the Department maintains its stature as one of the world’s preeminent psychology departments. Your donations help us to create enriching instructional and research experiences for our undergraduate and graduate students as well as attract and support the research of outstanding faculty.
We invite you to help us achieve our goals for the future by contributing to any of the Department funds described below. Gifts of any size are most welcome and gratefully received. Please use the links below to make your gift to the Department.
