About Us

The University of Wisconsin Stevens Point Foundation, Inc. is the primary fundraising and gift-receiving organization for UW-Stevens Point. The Foundation is the university’s development and financial partner.

UW-Stevens Point Foundation, Inc. is a private, nonprofit corporation that encourages individuals and organizations to make gifts to the university. The Foundation was created in 1965 and is governed by a board comprised of UW-Stevens Point alumni and donors. Each year, the UW-Stevens Point Foundation transfers gift and investment income to UW-Stevens Point. (You can learn more from the financial information posted on our web page.) The funds support scholarships, projects, programs, and initiatives of the specific colleges.

The Foundation staff believes that private support grows out of good relationships between the university and the alumni and friends who invest in UW-Stevens Point. Staff work with the campus to understand university priorities, encourage gifts, and help donors find the right fit for their philanthropy. 

The board of directors provides governance and oversight through best practices of nonprofit organizations and works in support of the staff and university goals.
