Fill the Hill 2021
October 28, 2021 - October 29, 2021
Get ready for a day of giving and goofiness as we celebrate the classic 1979 student prank when 1,008 pink plastic flamingos covered Bascom Hill. Starting at 5 p.m. on October 28, join fellow Badgers and friends around the world as we support UW–Madison’s greatest needs. Every gift the UW receives will add one flamingo to our fabulous flock, but most importantly, you help the university meet its most pressing needs. Find out how you can help spread the word!
Want to go beyond digital and earn some real-life Fill the Hill swag? For every $250 you give, we’ll ship a collectible plastic lawn flamingo to your home.
This year only, you’ll get a special-edition red flamingo! These flamingos are part of our celebration of the All Ways Forward campaign — and the incredible generosity of supporters like you who have helped UW–Madison remain one of the world’s leading institutions of higher education and research.
