Giving to UWFox
Donations from alumni and friends play an increasingly important part of the support for UWFox as state support for higher education has decreased over time. Your donation helps to keep a higher education affordable to students and helps to insure quality educational experiences. Donors are encouraged to contact the UW-Fox Valley Foundation Executive Director, Lisa Weiner, at email@example.com or 920.832.2849.
You can now give back to UWFox via PayPal. PayPal is a fast, easy, and secure method to donate to UW-Fox Valley Foundation without dealing with the hassles of checks and envelopes.
Once you click the Donate button, you will be taken to a secure PayPal checkout screen. You do not need to be a registered Paypal user to make a donation with your credit card!
A receipt of your donation will be emailed to you automatically.
Your support of UW-Fox Valley can occur through a variety of ways:
Despite good planning sometimes needs arise due to unexpected opportunities or unanticipated needs. Donations to the unrestricted annual fund give the foundation board discretion in directing funds to various needs at UWFox.
Funds expenses related to the professional development of faculty and staff. This can include research or publishing scholarly works; presenting at or attending professional conferences/workshops; and other activities.
Provide financial support to students to assist them with the costs of their higher education.
They are sustained through a large donation which is invested so that the scholarship is funded through earnings generated by the principle. The UW-Fox Valley Foundation will work with endowed scholarship donors to structure the scholarship according to the donor’s wishes.
Directed gifts allow UW-Fox Valley to address special one-time needs. Designated gifts may create new programs, sustain existing programs through endowments, purchase equipment, or address other needs. The Barlow Planetarium, Weis Earth Science Museum, and Engineering Laboratory are all examples of areas on campus which have been created and have benefited through designated gifts. Please contact the Foundation office for a list of current designated gift opportunities.
A charitable gift of any amount through a bequest can support UWFox long after the donor is gone. Individuals who inform the UW-Fox Valley Foundation of their intention to include the college in their estate plans will be inducted into the new Fox Heritage Society. The society honors donors of deferred gifts such as bequests, life insurance policies or trusts.
The Fox Heritage Society
At one time or another, we all ponder the legacy we will leave our children, our families and our larger community. Making an investment in education has always been a way to guarantee that we can make – and leave – the world a better place. The University of Wisconsin-Fox Valley, through the Fox Heritage Society, can help this legacy live on through a planned gift. A charitable gift of any amount through a bequest can support UWFox long after the donor is gone. Individuals who inform the UW-Fox Valley Foundation of their intention to include the college in their estate plans will be inducted into the Fox Heritage Society.
