Be a Part of Our Final Fundraising Campaign Starting September 2011

For five years, the John W. Jung Memorial has carried out its mission to celebrate John’s life by recognizing student achievement and helping those with addictions.

The Memorial is proud to have five outstanding young individuals as recipients of its annual scholarship award program. You can read all about our recipients and their incredible success at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and beyond on our Scholarship page.

Without you, our generous donors, we would not have accomplished all that we have over these five years. John’s memory lives on thanks to you.

This month, we are embarking on new and final mission—to secure the Memorial financially in perpetuity. If we succeed, we will be able to fully-endow the Memorial Fund and provide annual scholarships to worthy young individuals by using the fund’s growth and interest and preserving its principle.

Please become a lasting part of John’s legacy by becoming a Forever Donor. As a Forever Donor, your sponsorship will help the John W. Jung Memorial live on in perpetuity. Your donation is 100% tax-deductible.  You can also consider one of our many other giving levels.  For your generosity, you will be named on the organization’s Angel Page, get the opportunity to meet scholarship applicants and recipients, receive ongoing news and events updates/invites and enjoy the satisfaction of knowing that your investment secures the Memorial for eternity.

Dynamic, encouraging and creative are all adjectives that friends would use to describe John Jung. John was born in Fort Wayne, Indiana on February 24, 1978. As a young boy he moved back to Wisconsin and attended grade school in Waukesha. He then moved to Brookfield where he attended junior high and graduated from Brookfield Central High School in 1996.
