2012 graduates: Morgridges will match your gifts

May 16, 2012

With the help of a generous matching gift challenge from John and Tashia Morgridge, last year’s commencement campaign achieved 10 percent participation from the Class of 2011.

UW-Madison graduates are being urged to meet a matching gift challenge.

This success inspired the Morgridges to renew their matching challenge for the Class of 2012, with a goal of 15 percent participation. 

To qualify for the match, a gift must be between $20 and $200 and made by a member of the Class of 2012 before Dec. 31, 2012.  The match will follow the gift, no matter the designation.

John Morgridge, chair emeritus of the board of Cisco Systems, and Tashia Morgridge, a special education teacher who in retirement volunteers as a teacher for the learning disabled, have made a major impact on the UW campus through their giving.

The Morgridge Center for Public Service, the Red Gym, Grainger Hall, the newly renovated Education Building and the Morgridge Institute for Research represent just some of what they have made possible.
