Sustaining Human Innovation

Renewable resources for lasting impact — a campaign for UW-Eau Claire

As the university’s national reputation grows, the UW-Eau Claire Foundation has embarked on a fundraising campaign to ensure excellence for the future by developing sustainable revenue sources specifically in two areas – facilities to support student success and endowment funds that provide sustainable annual funding for scholarships, faculty support and program investments. The campaign goal is to raise more than $150 million by December 31, 2025.
