MADISON, Wis. - The goal of Engineers Without Borders is to help build better communities through engineering projects that empower, but they need your help! Ryan Docter, president of the UW-Madison chapter of Engineers Without Borders, joins FOX6 WakeUp to talk about their big virtual event.
"Typically we host an in-person annual fundraising banquet, but due to the ongoing pandemic, we are hosting a virtual fundraising campaign, EWBeUnited. Our goal this year is to raise $10,000 to support our four projects, ranging from providing clean water to generating solar energy," said Ryan Docter, President of the EWB UW-Madison Chapter. "As a non-profit and student organization, we rely on the generosity from the local community to continue to advocate for communities in need abroad."
