The Gaylord Nelson Circle

The Gaylord Nelson Circle is a group of committed individuals who donate $1,000 or more annually to 1000 Friends of Wisconsin. This support helps us to promote planning and development consistent with the principles of Gaylord Nelson.

Gaylord Nelson was a founding member and Honorary Chair of 1000 Friends of Wisconsin. We work to keep his spirit alive and to continue to do the work he felt was so critical to the future of Wisconsin.

You can join the Gaylord Nelson Circle by setting up regular electronic fund transfers or making a one time donation online at our Donate Now page or by sending a check to:

1000 Friends of Wisconsin
16 N Carroll St, Suite 800
Madison, WI  53703
