Council Oak Society

Named after the Council Oak Tree, which stood on the site of the UW-Eau Claire campus for nearly 300 years, the Council Oak Society recognizes those who have confirmed planned or deferred gifts to the UW-Eau Claire Foundation.

Whether a bequest in your will, insurance arrangements, charitable gift or deferred annuities, trust arrangements, pooled income funds, gifts of appreciated securities or real property or through other arrangements, your generosity will make a lasting impact on UW-Eau Claire.

Like the Council Oak Tree, your gift ensures UW-Eau Claire will serve future generations of students as a place of gathering, shelter and collaboration. You may confirm your planned gift to the UW-Eau Claire Foundation by submitting a completed declaration of intent for an estate gift or contacting the Foundation at
