Support Less Commonly Taught Language Learning at WISLI

We hope you consider giving the gift of language and support less commonly taught language learning at the Wisconsin Intensive Summer Language Institutes (WISLI). Donation funds will go towards student scholarships and programming enhancements (e.g., additional tutors, cultural workshops, teaching materials, etc.).

Donations are tax-deductible and can be made at any amount through the University of Wisconsin Foundation, the official fundraising and gift-receiving organization for the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Each year, the UW Foundation transfers gift and investment income to departments within UW-Madison. When you make a donation through the UW Foundation, you are contributing to an endowment which ensures the financial stability of the Language Program Office (LPO), the administrative unit of WISLI.

You can currently make a donation one of two ways:

  • Online: Donate via our secure fund link on the UW Foundation’s website at Language Program Office Fund – 112500024
  • By Mail: Send the funds in by check to the “lock box” and include “International Division Language Programs Office Fund” as the fund destination on the check or with a note attached to it:
    1. Make check payable to: UW Foundation
    2. Memo or note:  new International Division LPO Fund
    3. Mail to: UW Foundation, US Bank Lockbox 78807, Milwaukee, WI 53278-0807

If you choose to have your gift go towards a specific WISLI Institute (ie. CESSI, MEDLI, MULTI, NORD, SASLI, SIPI), please email to inform us of your desire.


We are grateful for your generosity and support of our language programming!
