GUIDE TO BENEFACTORS
OF THE
UNIVERSITY
OF WISCONSIN
Friends and alumni of the University provide important personal and finan-
cial help. This generosity is sincerely appreciated and encouraged. Gifts
to the
University may be made to the University of Wisconsin Foundation, the Wis-
consin Alumni Research Foundation or The Regents of The University of
Wisconsin. These three avenues of support are described in more detail on
the opposite page.
    The importance of private support to education is recognized by both
federal and state lawmakers. Tax regulations have been written to encourage
generous aid to universities. Many donors have found that they can increase
the size of their gift through the donation of stocks, property, or other
things
of value. Bequests provide another source of income and offer an ideal oppor-
unity for a donor to memorialize some project or program in his name or the
name of a loved one.
    Specific questions concerning tax situations or the wording of wills
should
be discussed with your attorney or with representatives of the University's
foundations. We appreciate your interest in supporting Wisconsin. Do not
hesitate to write if we can supply more information. Remember, your gift
will
help make Wisconsin the kind of university you want it to be.
                                                     Sincerely yours,
                                                     C. A. Elvehjenz
                                                          President
Wisconsin Alumnus, December, 1961
