The Wisconsin Alumni Association® (WAA) is your connection to UW–Madison. Since 1861, we’ve been enriching the lives of UW alumni and keeping you connected to your alma mater and to fellow Badgers.

In 2014, WAA merged with the UW Foundation to form the Wisconsin Foundation and Alumni Association (WFAA), a nonprofit organization dedicated to advancing the University of Wisconsin–Madison. We now provide a unified effort to engage alumni and friends in support and celebration of the UW. Dues-paying WAA members — and those who support WAA even more as sustaining members — help to make it possible for us to serve alumni worldwide.
