Matching gift helps ‘structure’ the future of Wisconsin engineering

A recently created matching gift opportunity aims to inspire additional gifts to support the renovation of the Wisconsin Structures and Materials Testing Laboratory. The match was created by Jun (BSCE ’68, MSCE ’69, PhDCE ’73) and Sandy Lee (BA ’69) after the structures lab renovation budget estimate increased to $3.2 million due to changes in the scope and location of the lab.

All new gifts of $1,500 or more and pledges of $5,000 or more are being matched one to one by Jun and Sandy, up to $500,000.

The new structures lab will revolutionize structural engineering education and research, allowing faculty and students to conduct research on full-scale structural elements, and providing a state-of-the-art testing facility for structural and construction industries in the Midwest and beyond.

Get involved today! Contact University of Wisconsin Foundation Director of Development Rob Herrick, (608) 572-1850 or, to learn how to take advantage of the match and build the future of structural engineering at UW-Madison.
