Summary

ABE (Advancing Badger Engagement) is WFAA’s database of record for advancement activity in support UW-Madison. We maintain the data, and that data is leveraged in communication lists and reporting that may be used for advancement efforts on behalf of UW-Madison, which you are welcome to request using this form. Information provided in response to requests may only be used for legitimate WFAA or UW-Madison business and may not be provided to third parties without WFAA approval.

Key Takeaways

Such information is confidential and may only be used in accordance with WFAA’s polices, including its data disclosure and confidentiality policies.


Note: If you are wanting to update many ABE records at a time (a past use of this form – sometimes referred to as “reverse lists requests”), you may submit your request to WFAA via our update ABE form.

Note: If any WFAA Marketing, Event, and/or Registration team assistance is needed, please submit a Project, Event, and/or Registration Request .
