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.
Blugold Radio/Converge 99.9 FM
Consider supporting UW-Eau Claire’s student-run radio station, Blugold Radio/Converge 99.9 FM. Blugold Radio/Converge focuses on regional musicians and programming and gives students a chance to learn real career skills in a professional setting.
This student-run radio station is not supported by state dollars. Your gift will ensure that local programming, Blugold stories and music stay on the air, and keep alive the internships and opportunities the station provides for students.
Buildings + Facilities
Help lay the foundation for ongoing Blugold excellence and community revitalization. Renovation and construction projects on campus create spaces that enhance student learning and success. Major partnership projects include the Pablo Center at the Confluence, the Sonnentag Complex, and a new Alumni Welcome 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.
Scholarships + Student Support
With over $2 million in support of our Blugold students, scholarships awarded through the Foundation are deeply meaningful for many students. 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.
