Making a Difference
Alumni and Friends are key players in helping the UW-Fox Valley Foundation to make a difference. Those efforts by alumni and friends are noted and appreciated by us on campus. That difference takes many forms by providing:
- A scholarship that can mean the difference in an academically deserving student being able to attend college when he or she lacks the financial ability to pay for college,
- Funds for faculty and staff development for academic research, publication of scholarly works, attendance and/or presentation at professional workshops, or conducting other professional enhancement activities. These keep UWFox faculty and staff on the forefront of developments in their discipline of expertise which benefit our students.
- Funds for special program needs and or equipment that occur throughout the academic year —long after the completion of the campus budget. The Foundation provides a mechanism to allow students, faculty, and staff to recognize special new opportunities or to meet unanticipated needs.
- Capital fundraising endeavors that benefit our campus and enrich our surrounding communities. The Barlow Planetarium and Weis Earth Science Museum are prime examples. The Foundation has identified raising funds for our Communication Arts Center as a primary goal.

Through it, you’ll learn more of the work of the Foundation, the campus, and news of fellow alumni and our friends.
It’s because of that support that the UW-Fox Valley Foundation succeeds, the campus achieves, and the lives of our students, their families, and our society are positively impacted.
