With our 125th anniversary upon us, employees are encouraged to lead the way in providing philanthropic support to UW-Stout. When asked to give, the questions often arises, "Why, during these difficult times, give back?"

As faculty and staff, we recognize the importance of education and see the many needs of campus every day, but it is also important to show our other philanthropic partners that we believe in what we do, and are willing to show that through financial support. Giving back to Stout is a vote of confidence in the education we provide.

Board of Directors Match

Through the generosity of the Stout University Foundation Board of Directors, all contributions greater than $125 will be matched. Gifts may be restricted to any program, department, scholarship, or area of interest. Help us reach our goal of $125,000 and challenge your colleagues to make a gift with you!

Support Your Campus Community

Please join in making a gift to support our excellence in education and the dedication we provide to our students. No gift is too small. By coming together, we can truly make a difference.

Employee Giving

"I have worked at UW-Stout for nearly fifteen years in various capacities. I strongly believe that education changes the trajectory of ones future and investing in education makes the community better. 

Recently, my husband and I have become involved with Stout's Fostering Success Initiative. This has been a very exciting chance to support students who may need extra help in order to navigate the often daunting maze of higher education. Through supporting Fostering Success, we can at least help put students on a solid path toward a self-sufficient, fulfilling adulthood.

We are happy to be able to share what education and opportunity has brought to us with UW-Stout students and the Menomonie community now, and into the future, as we plan our estate giving as well as annual giving. We know that be aligning ourselves with quality organizations such as UW-Stout, we can accomplish more good than we could ever do alone."
