Summary

Keeping an up-to-date database is essential to maximizing our effectiveness in Advancement for UW-Madison. If you would like to request that WFAA update multiple database records at a time, you may submit your request to WFAA via this form.


4WARD (Wisconsin Advancement Resource Database) is the WFAA’s database of record for its advancement activity in support of 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 for both WFAA and UW-Madison staff.

We must all work together to keep WFAA’s data accurate and relevant. Please help WFAA help you by ensuring that we have the most up-to-date and relevant information. If you see information that is outdated or inaccurate, please let us know by using this form. UW-Madison staff play an important role in maintaining the accuracy and quality of our constituent data. If you have fewer than 10 updates, you may submit directly within 4WARD by creating a case.

If you would like to update multiple records at a time, you may submit your request to WFAA via this form. You have 3 options for mass updates:

  1. If you have new or updated information about 10 or more constituents in the 4WARD database, you may submit a records update request.
  2. If you would like to tag the records of constituents that received a communication, you may submit a communications tagging request.
  3. If you have completed a Donor Acknowledgement Report (DAR) and would like for your acknowledgements to be appended to the appropriate revenue records by WFAA’s Gift Services team, you can upload a completed DAR.
