In 1931, Harold C. Bradley, Porter Butts, and a small group of students established the Wisconsin Hoofers. Eight decades later, as one of the largest and most active collegiate outdoor recreation programs in the country, Hoofers continues to offer outdoor recreation activities and bond new communities around the outdoors. Now, Hoofers is looking to the future and depends on your support.
Your generous support assists with scholarships, programs, leadership training, equipment and infrastructure improvements, and much more.
Donors who make a gift of $500 or more will be inducted into the Harold C. Bradley Society!
Note: If you'd like to donate directly to the Mountaineering or Scuba Clubs, please use the Hoofers Fund link and add the club name to the end of the fund name. For example: "Hoofers Fund - 112904606 - Mountaineering" or "Hoofers Fund - 112904606 - Scuba".
Your generous volunteerism (upon approval/acceptance by Hoofers) helps to enrich our community of outdoor enthusiasts. Hoofers membership and involvement is generally based around volunteerism, however there are other opportunities to volunteer/lead with Wisconsin Hoofers for those who are not active club members.
To learn more about available volunteer opportunities, please contact your individual club president or reach out to the Hoofer Council President at firstname.lastname@example.org!
Your generous in-kind support helps Hoofers to continue to learn, explore, and bond through recreation. In-kind support can be the donation of equipment (upon approval/acceptance of Wisconsin Hoofers), hospitality (offering housing for traveling Hoofers), use of property/equipment, services, and more.
Donors who support Hoofers with an in-kind gift of $500 or more (in value) will be inducted into the Harold C. Bradley Society!
