UW - Madison Black Initiative Fund

The Wisconsin Black Student Union and the Associated Students of Madison are dismayed yet unsurprised by the continuing police violence in our country that took the lives of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Eric Garner, and countless other people whose lives mattered. 

We have chosen to form the Wisconsin Black Initiative Fund so that our campus community can come together to financially support equity and justice for Black Badgers. Fund allocation will go towards the UW-Madison Black Cultural Center, community, and national organizations such as Color of Change. This is subject to change based on the WBIF Board‘s decision that will factor in an organization’s financial need. Updates will be provided as decisions are made.

The Fund’s executive board is composed of representatives from the following UW Student Organizations:

- Wisconsin Black Student Union
- Associated Students of Madison
- The Black Cultural Center
- Student Inclusion Coalition
- Wisconsin Association of Black Men
- The Black Voice
- The Black Law Student Association
- National Pan-Hellenic Council
- Multicultural Greek Council 
- African Students Association
- Mixed Students Association

We will be asking the University of Wisconsin-Madison to match all of our contributions to this Go Fund Me once we meet, and hopefully surpass our fundraising goal. Together, we can make a difference.

Any donation will be helpful towards reaching our goal of $10,000 and we ask that you share this fundraiser with family and friends. Thank you for ALL of your support and special thanks to the 90 + student organizations for sponsoring this initiative so far:
