Final Fundraising Campaign Launched to Secure the Future of the John W. Jung Memorial
Thursday, September 01, 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.
