Purposity Needs Request


Purposity is a mobile app that UW-Madison has partnered with to help bridge the gap between interested donors and students in need. Its name comes from purpose + generosity and Purposity’s vision is to inspire us to live generously by connecting people to doing good. No matter your challenge, you are not in this alone! If you have a need that can help you be more successful, such as hygiene products, clothing, or food, we encourage you to consider submitting a request below.

How it Works:

By completing this form it allows for our team to ensure your individual needs request can be posted for others to see on the Purposity App. Once your need is posted then members of our community will be able to consider meeting your request. Once your request is met by a community member, we will notify you and your item will be shipped to the place you indicated. If you indicated you would like to pick the item up from 333 East Campus Mall, then our team will work with you on a pick-up time once the item arrives.
Please fill out one form per request. If you have any question filling out the form, feel free to contact a member of Basic Needs Team at basic.needs@finaid.wisc.edu.
