What difference can you make?

Your gift makes a real difference in our students' lives. Your generosity affords promising, hard-working students with opportunities to fulfill their educational goals and make their own mark on the world. You can trace everything good that happens at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire to the people who care enough to invest themselves and their resources in our students, our faculty and staff, and the community. The generosity of donors impacts the lives of every student. Here are some of the ways the generosity of donors impacts the lives of every student:

  • Scholarships and fellowships
  • Financial assistance during emergency situations
  • Recruitment of outstanding faculty
  • Facility upgrades and renovations to meet changing needs
  • Purchase of classroom and lab equipment
  • Resources not covered by tuition or state funding

Thanks to the generosity of our university’s alumni and friends, the Foundation is well positioned to provide key support of UW-Eau Claire’s goals and serve students and our region well into the next century.
