Annual Fund Campaign Is Foundation Sparkplug

Donors sometimes ask why the UW Wausau Campus Foundation conducts an Annual Fund campaign. The short answer: Our Annual Fund campaign is the sparkplug that makes our foundation engine go. It provides unrestricted dollars to fund operational expenses and other areas of significant need. Annual Fund donations also provide student scholarships, support faculty research and development, underwrite new equipment and technology and make various public events possible. Fall and winter are key seasons for the Annual Fund campaign. Please click here to support the Annual Fund campaign!
