"Make Your Day" Initiative


What a great time to make your day at UWMC … and pay tribute to someone or something important to you!

The UW-Marathon County Foundation is offering unique, long-lasting value to individuals, couples, businesses and other groups that make a one-time sponsorship commitment of just $1,000 by sponsoring a theater seat in the UW Center for Civic Engagement. Your sponsorship will support the Foundation’s unrestricted Annual Fund campaign to provide student scholarships, as well as support faculty research and capital projects.

We call it Make Your Day at UWMC, a valuable way to honor:

  • A person, place or thing to mark a significant anniversary, memorial or achievement.
  • A couple or a group of people who have collectively achieved a significant personal, academic or community milestone.
  • A business that wishes to highlight its role as a good corporate citizen in the community.
  • A foundation or other type of organization that wants to establish a lasting tribute to its role in the community.

The concept of Make Your Day at UWMC is simple

Choose an open date, and make it yours at UWMC (i.e. Jim Smith Day, Acme Manufacturing Co. Day, etc.) There are 365 seats in the state-of-the-art new theatre at the Center for Civic Engagement and there are 365 days in the year. Simply choose “your day” on the seating chart, which shows seating beginning with Jan. 1 for the first seat in the first row, through Dec. 31 for the last seat in the last row.

View the theatre seating chart and the "key” to see which seats correspond with each date of the year.

Your one-time sponsorship fee of $1,000 will provide you with perpetual rights to a package that includes the following benefits:

  • A permanent brass name plate (with up to 40 text characters) on the arm of a designated seat in the theatre.
  • An authentication certificate suitable for framing. The certificate will declare the designated day at UWMC, and confirm the location of the seat and the inscription on it.
  • Annual recognition on the UWMC electronic marquee (facing Stewart Ave.) on the designated day (when it falls on a business day when staff is in the office).
  • Annual recognition on the TV monitors positioned around the UWMC campus on the designated day (when it falls on a business day)
  • Year-round listing on the Foundation web site on a “Make Your Day” sponsor page
  • Opportunity for a special visit/tour on the UWMC campus on your designated day
