Ways to Give

Annual Fund

Despite good planning, sometimes needs arise due to unexpected opportunities or unanticipated needs. Donations to the unrestricted annual fund give the Foundation board discretion in directing funds to various needs at the Fox Cities campus.

Professional Development

This funds helps defray the expenses of conferences, workshops and other educational opportunities so that our faculty and staff are able to stay current in their field.

Restricted Gifts

Directed gifts allow the Fox Cities campus to address special, one-time needs. Designated gifts may create new programs, sustain existing programs through endowments, purchase equipment or address other needs. The Barlow Planetarium, Weis Earth Science Museum, and Engineering Laboratory are all examples of areas on campus that have been created and have benefited through designated gifts. Please contact the Foundation office for a list of current designated gift opportunities.

Fox Heritage Society

At one time or another, we all ponder the legacy we will leave our children, our families and our larger community. Making an investment in education has always been a way to guarantee that we can make – and leave – the world a better place. Through the Fox Heritage Society, the Fox Cities campus can help this legacy live on through a planned gift. A charitable gift of any amount through a bequest can support the Fox Cities campus long after the donor is gone. Individuals who inform the Fox Cities campus of their intention to include the college in their estate plans will be inducted into the Fox Heritage Society.
