Find your passion here
Gifts come in many shapes and sizes, but all yield extraordinary impact. Much of the annual support the Foundation provides to the university comes from gifts under $500. Your annual support, no matter the size, is changing the lives of students, faculty, and members of our community. Yearly gifts truly do become the future of the university.
Buildings + Facilities
Help lay the foundation for ongoing Blugold excellence and community revitalization. Construction projects on campus create spaces that enhance student learning and success. Major partnership projects include the Pablo Center at the Confluence, the County Materials Complex and Sonnentag Event Center, and the Flesch Family Welcome Center.
The Foundation also supports projects to upgrade campus facilities in need of renovation, including Simpson Field and the Veterans Center.
Every dollar invested in our outstanding faculty has a direct and immediate impact on Blugold students. Help retain and attract outstanding faculty by supporting teaching, research and scholarship that provide sustainable, high-impact learning opportunities for students.
High Impact Practices
Blugolds get the best education when learning takes place both in and outside of the traditional classroom. High impact practices develop students into global leaders, critical thinkers, and engaged citizens. Pair active learning, research, and immersion with passion, and you help shape educational experiences of the highest caliber. More than 80 percent of students participate in at least once high-impact practice during their education, including opportunities for study abroad, intercultural immersion, research, internships, and service learning.
Scholarships + Student Support
With nearly $2.5 million in support of our Blugold students across 750 unique awards, scholarships provided through the Foundation are deeply meaningful for many students and help to recruit and retain the best and the brightest at UW-Eau Claire. Ensure a bright future for Blugold success by helping to keep education affordable and accessible.
Special Collections + Projects
The needs of students and faculty are ever-evolving. Special collections and projects not only support collaborative research projects but enrich our community. Your generosity sustains excellence in teaching and research at UW-Eau Claire for years to come.
