Mark your calendars for the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh’s second annual Giving Day set for Monday, Sept. 12. Last year’s Giving Day—in honor of the University’s sesquicentennial—raised nearly $100,000.
“The Titan community is truly a special one,” said Lynn Kleman, interim associate vice chancellor of development. “Last year’s inaugural Giving Day was a huge success and we are hopeful the community will once again support UW Oshkosh on Sept. 12.”
By taking part in UWO’s Giving Day, the Titan community will have the opportunity to support the next generation of leaders, researchers and champions.
This year’s Giving Day will benefit the UW Oshkosh Fund and the Scholarship Support Fund—or whatever area you are most passionate about.
“The greatest needs at the University are for unrestricted funds,” Kleman said. “We also want each individual to be able to support the area that impacted them the most while on campus at UW Oshkosh.”
The UW Oshkosh Fund supports the greatest needs of the UW Oshkosh Foundation and UW Oshkosh, while the Scholarship Support Fund is an unrestricted scholarship fund awarded based on the greatest needs of the University.
Although the 24 hours of Sept. 12 is Giving Day, you don’t need to wait until then to give. All gifts made ahead of the day will count toward the special day.
