About Us

Maintaining Stout's Legacy

Fifty years ago, fall of 1962, the founding board of directors of the Stout University Foundation awarded two $100-scholarships after a successful fundraising campaign selling commemorative buttons during homecoming week.

Thanks to our many donors, advisors and partners we are able to award nearly $600,000 annually in scholarship support to our current students.

Mission

The Stout University Foundation, Inc., cultivates relationships between UW-Stout and its various constituencies for their mutual benefit. It supports the mission and goals of UW-Stout through the acquisition and stewardship of resources.

Vision

The Stout University Foundation Board of Directors will promote activities to build a broad base of support for UW-Stout. 

UW-Stout is a dynamic educational institution with a global reputation poised to attain increased visibility for its unique mission.  

The development and alumni activities will focus on existing initiatives, pursuing targeted growth opportunities and selectively developing partnerships to leverage financial and human resources. The Stout University Foundation will foster an enduring standard of excellence in its activities and those of UW-Stout.

Goals

Secure private gifts distinct and separate from the state and the institution's resources. Establish priorities for the annual fund, major gifts, gift planning, corporate and foundation relations. 

Engage donors, prospects and alumni in the institution's vision and steward their investments of time and money.  

Strengthen the Foundation and UW-Stout's public image and create an environment conducive to interest, to engage and to involve alumni and friends in philanthropic support.  

Design an office infrastructure to support ongoing fund raising activities. Ensure that information systems are in place to improve the quality of data and meet the increasing demand for information by alumni and fund raising staff. Maintain a leadership style which empowers staff through active communication and delegation, and ensures staff accountability for excellence through clearly defined and measurable goals.
