Blugold emergency Fund

Taking care of our own through the
Blugold Emergency Support Fund

Last year, for the first time, the UW-Eau Claire Foundation dedicated its Campus Campaign to one special fund. With the support of more than 160 faculty and staff, we raised $8,250 for the Blugold Emergency Support Fund. Those gifts have already made a powerful impact on the lives of Blugolds.

The Blugold Emergency Support Fund provides much-needed financial support for faculty, staff, and students in crisis situations such as a house fire or serious health emergency. Together, we can “be there” for a student or colleague in his or her time of need.

Please consider a gift to the Blugold Emergency Support Fund this year. If every university employee made a gift of at least $25, we could raise more than $39,000 to support our own campus community. If you prefer, you can also designate your gift to the Excellence Fund, your department, or any area of the university that interests you. Your participation is what matters most.
