Ted D. & Mary T. Kellner Matching Gift Program

Ted (’69) and Mary (’68) Kellner have committed a lead gift of $20 million dollars to the Building Champions Campaign in support of the new Football Indoor Practice Facility. Through their continued generosity to the University, the Kellner Family has elected to create the Kellner Match, a matching gift program to raise donations and awareness for the campaign. Our shared desire is to inspire and incentivize other loyal Badgers to join the effort to elevate the competitive profile of Wisconsin Athletics.
