Parents Fund

What is the UW-Eau Claire Parents Fund?

The Parents Fund is another way to support great learning at UW-Eau Claire — especially in areas where tuition and state funding fall short. Annual gifts from parents and other family members of UW-Eau Claire students go a long way to support hardworking students with high-impact academic experiences and scholarships.

Why should I contribute to the Parents Fund?

By pursuing a college education, your child has made an important step toward a bright future. On average, a person with a college degree earns $1 million more over a lifetime than someone with a high school education. Your son or daughter also will have the distinction of earning a degree from UW-Eau Claire, a university that is nationally recognized for academic excellence.

Your contribution is a way to honor your child. All donors to the Parents Fund are recognized in the UW-Eau Claire Foundation annual report.

What specific programs does the Parents Fund support?

Gifts to the Parents Fund, along with other unrestricted gifts from alumni and friends, help support:

•    the UW-Eau Claire Blugold Family Connection program.
•    student scholarships and fellowships.
•    faculty/student collaborative research projects.
•    international study opportunities for students.
•    professional and curriculum development initiatives for faculty.
•    Honors Program courses.
•    awards for outstanding faculty and staff.
•    additional opportunities for enhanced teaching and learning as they arise.
