Established in 1925, the independent, nonprofit Wisconsin Alumni Research Foundation, WARF, is your proven leader in technology commercialization and endowment management with many resources to invest in University discoveries and success. WARF’s leadership in technology commercialization has resulted in the processing of more than 6,300 discoveries from University inventors and more than 2,300 patents on those discoveries, including more than 1,600 licensing agreements with companies all over the world. With leadership in technology commercialization comes leadership in endowment management. WARF’s $2.5 billion endowment is managed to make a difference in helping to expand the margin of excellence for the University today and into the future. With the combination of investment management, donor-directed contributions and licensing revenues, WARF grants to the University total $1.4 billion ($700 million over the last 15 years). These grants have funded more than 57,000 research projects and partially or fully paid for the construction of nearly every research facility on campus, a total of some 52 projects, including the Wisconsin Institutes for Discovery. Recipient of the National Medal of Technology, the nation’s highest award for technological achievement, WARF looks forward to the possibility of investing in helping your research make a difference.
