The University of Wisconsin Oshkosh Foundation reported $33 million in net assets and $25.4 million in total endowments in its recently released 2021-22 Impact Report.
The report also noted that the Foundation raised $2.9 million for UW Oshkosh in the last fiscal year.
The report provides updates on the Foundation’s financial assets, gives insights into overall scholarship numbers and college-specific scholarship breakdowns, while showcasing University highlights and providing information on the Foundation’s focus moving forward.
“The Foundation was blessed by the show of support in 2021-22 from alumni, community, partners, patrons, faculty, staff and others, as we celebrated things like the sesquicentennial, live events on and off campus and more,” said Greg Giles, UW Oshkosh Foundation executive director.
The report also highlighted that 23 new scholarships were awarded for the first time and 764 students received financial support in 2021-22—106 more students than a year ago.
The Foundation provided the following scholarship breakdown by college:
- Business: $119,475 paid out, 72 awards given
- Letters and Science: $247,816, 166 awards given
- Education and Human Services: $73,095 paid out, 64 awards given
- Nursing: $125,711 paid out, 76 awards given
The remaining $546,660 paid out through 389 awards was primarily for scholarships that do no require a specific major but rather are based on financial need, leadership or campus or community involvement.
Giles said he appreciates the support the Foundation receives.
“The Foundation continues to build a strong level of support for UWO through donations for scholarships, programs and more, but we are always reminded that it’s not about money but about change,” said Giles. “As we look forward and work through challenges like a changing stock market, we still find our hope and inspiration from students, alumni, faculty, staff, donors and others who make UWO what it is today…an amazing place to build a foundation for a lifetime of change.”
