MADISON – The clock is ticking.

University of Wisconsin-Madison Class of 2011 graduates can see their gifts to support the university doubled, but only through Saturday, Dec. 31.

In their 2011 spring commencement address, UW-Madison alumni and donors John and Tashia Morgridge issued the following challenge:

“We will match, dollar for dollar, donations to the university from all 2011 graduates, in amounts ranging from $20.11 to $120.11,” Tashia Morgridge said.

John Morgridge added: “We encourage you to begin a lifelong relationship with this great university…. You will always be a Badger.”

The match is available for all undergraduate, graduate and professional students who graduated in May or August or who will graduate this month. Graduates wishing to make a gift and qualify for the match should visit http://www.supportuw.org/making-a-gift by Saturday, Dec. 31.
