The Madison Fund provides low-income borrowers with the tools they need to overcome the many obstacles of poverty and build a sound financial base for the future. At TMF, you can get hands on experience making a difference in the Madison community. The Madison Fund is currently looking for smart and motivated students interested in nonprofit service, economic development, community development, finance, marketing, lending, fundraising and much more. Students can take a leadership role, or just give their time to help pull people out of poverty and create jobs. Volunteers must be students at UW-Madison.
