Philanthropists John, Tashia Morgridge donate hundreds of millions to Wisconsin causes
Philanthropists John, Tashia Morgridge donate hundreds of millions to Wisconsin causes: "ut Morgridge — a Wauwatosa native, UW-Madison graduate and member of the Forbes 400 list of America’s wealthiest people — wasn’t talking about helping a few kids through school. He and his wife wanted to give $175 million to create the Fund for Wisconsin Scholars, an endowment that would provide a couple of thousand grants each year to low-income students attending one of Wisconsin’s public colleges or universities. The gift is believed to be the second-largest philanthropic act in state history behind the $205 million Jerome Frautschi gave to build the Overture Center in Madison."
