Sincere thanks go to the many alumni and friends who have generously supported the University of Wisconsin's Folklore Program.  Private gifts are increasingly critical to maintain the Program's strong commitment to integrated research, teaching, and public outreach. Your donations help us:

  • attract top faculty and graduate students
  • support graduate and undergraduate fieldwork
  • issue documentary media productions
  • create exhibits
  • develop archival collections
  • partner with organizations beyond the university
  • sponsor stimulating lectures, symposia, film screenings, and other public events.

Gifts of any size are most welcome and gratefully received.
