Give the gift of education and opportunity

Monday, December 3rd, 2012

With the season of giving upon us, please consider making a gift back to your alma mater. Alumni support is more important now than ever, as tuition continues to increase, while other funding sources remain flat or decrease. Your gift helps support UW-Green Bay students through scholarships or supplementing costs for academic programs.

For example, UW-Green Bay alumni helped 47 students receive more than $60,000 in scholarships this year with their donations from last year. This is important, especially since 82% of undergraduate students qualify for and receive some form of financial aid. With a record 6,798 students this year, know that every little bit helps, and alumni gifts add up to a big difference for UW-Green Bay students!

Alumni Phone-a-thon: We’re calling on you!

Tuesday, September 28th, 2010

Alumni Phone-a-thonDid you know that the Alumni Phone-a-thon is more than a method for your alma mater to ask for a gift? You can benefit from the call by comparing your UWGB experience with our callers, or by asking them about alumni benefits. We use the call to update our records so that  you are certain to receive Inside, your alumni magazine.

Of course, we’d also love for you to consider a donation to support student scholarships so that other UW-Green Bay students can have that same great experience you had. Can’t give this year? That’s understandable, but please help us maintain contact by answering the call! Majors to be called in October include Social Work, Nursing, Human Development, Psychology and Growth and Development.
