American Family Children’s Hospital Radiothon 2018

The totals are in…

$685,533 was raised thanks to your generous donations during the American’s Family Children’s Hospital Radiothon with Magic 98! 

THANK YOU! Thank you! Thank you! We are so honored to be a part of this incredible gift to our Madison community.

Here are just some of the ways donations have been used in past years:

  • Funded a Child Life Specialist position in the Emergency Department to help patients and their families cope with fear, pain, and anxiety.
  • Provided supplies for the Positive Image Center which offers wigs, hats and salon services to patients free of charge.
  • Provided gas cards and transportation resources for families who need help getting to and from the hospital, including those who need treatments several times each week.
  • Supported Tyler’s Place sibling care, so parents can stay with their hospitalized child while the siblings are taken care of in a nurturing and therapeutic environment.
  • Provided dinners for thousands of moms, dads, and patient visitors.

The UW Foundation is a publicly supported charitable organization under sections 501(c)(3), 509(a)(1) and 170(b)(1)(A)(iv) of the IRS Code. A gift is fully tax deductible unless the donor receives goods and/or services in exchange for her or his contribution or as long as the value of any goods or services received qualify as ‘low cost articles’ under section 513(h)(2).
