Since 1974, the Friends of the Campus Foundation has raised funds to provide scholarships for hundreds of students. If you or a family member received a scholarship from UW-BSC, the Friends probably helped make it possible.
The group meets every other month and holds one or two fundraising events each year. Our annual Grape and Gourmet Gala has supported student scholarships for the last 15 years. If you are interested in serving on the Friends Board, please contact us. We're always looking for dedicated, enthusiastic people.
Grape & Gourmet Gala: April 21, 2016
Help increase support for student scholarships while enjoying fine wine and a unique gourmet meal. Bid on a beautiful array of silent auction items, and join in the fun of competing to win one of our outstanding live auction items. Make your reservation by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org, or by calling Aural Umhoefer at (608) 356-2318.
Logistics of Giving
Operations/Area of Greatest Need: By funding our operations, you help us maximize our ability to deliver programming. We can incorporate technology to increase efficiency, market to share the availability of scholarships to future students, hire staff to increase the opportunities to find funding sources...all to transform lives. When you donate to an organization's area of greatest need, you trust that organization will use your gift to further its mission in the best way possible. You can stop by our offices at any time to check in on us.
Century Club Partners Endowment: You can help us build our endowment with any donation of $100 or more. The majority of the interest from this fund goes toward helping students achieve dreams they never thought possible.
Alumni: Our alumni love the campus community that supported them and allowed them to find their voice. Help us fund alumni events to keep them free: networking lunches, reunions, lectures, etc. The alumni program also hopes to increase funding for alumni professional development to attend conferences, workshops, and further education.
Named Scholarship: You can fund a named scholarship (business, memorial, personal) for a donation of $500 or more.
Existing Named Scholarship: You may donate to any existing scholarship fund you wish to support. If you choose to do this, please write the name of the fund in the memo line of a check, or in the notes section in the checkout with online giving.
