The Foundation is an independent, tax-exempt organization that helps alumni, friends and donors provide financial support for academic, cultural and professional programs at UW-Eau Claire that cannot be maintained through state funds and tuition alone.
"One hundred years of excellence: that is what our university’s faculty, staff, alumni and friends have accomplished together at UW-Eau Claire. I am filled with gratitude as I consider the passion and commitment of the many people over the past century who have enabled this university to successfully serve its mission to advance the public good. This ensures we propel our tradition of excellence forward with purpose and confidence. Thank you to those who have been and continue to be a part of UW-Eau Claire’s future." —Chancellor James C.
