Excellence Fund

Helping students + creating opportunities

Each year, nearly 3,000 alumni and friends donate to the Excellence Fund to support UW-Eau Claire's greatest needs. Gifts to the Excellence Fund range from $5 to $20,000, with a median gift of $50. Gifts of any amount made to the Excellence Fund will make a difference for current and future Blugolds!

The Excellence Fund supports the greatest needs of the university, including:

  • Emergency support for students
  • Student scholarships
  • Research opportunities
  • Study abroad programs
  • Internships and field experience
  • Professional development for students, faculty and staff
  • Academic programs
  • University Honors Program

Thank you for considering a gift to the UW-Eau Claire Excellence Fund. The Excellence Fund steps in where tuition and state funding fall short and provides invaluable learning opportunities and support for students at UW-Eau Claire.

Even though I was far away and going through all this, I knew the university was supporting me in some way. I knew they were taking care of me. It's like having your family backing you up.
