The Foundation is the official fundraising and gift-receiving organization for the Fond du Lac campus.
The Foundation was established in 1974 to provide scholarships to both entering and continuing students and grants for professional development of the faculty and staff. Through the generosity of individuals, businesses and alumni responding to annual appeals, the Foundation has been able to award increasingly greater amounts to deserving individuals.
The mission of the Foundation is to promote excellence at the Fond du Lac campus while enhancing the educational and cultural activities available on its campus.
The Foundation’s primary objectives are to provide scholarships for students and professional development opportunities for faculty and staff and to help improve the resources available to students, faculty and staff, the campus, and the foundation.
