Support the Wisconsin Union Building Fund
The Wisconsin Union Theater, built in 1939, has been a constant home for thousands of programs. Nearing 70 years of memorable performances, the Wisconsin Union Theater is in need of many improvements in infrastructure, systems and accessibility. Donations to this fund are used to support the Wisconsin Union Initiative, which includes the construction of a new "green" south campus union as well as renovations to Memorial Union including the renovation of the Wisconsin Union Theater.
