400+ Proud Alumni Donors

More than 400 alumni made a gift to UW-Parkside during the past academic year… thank you!

Throughout the year, alumni generosity supported scholarships across campus, Ranger Athletics, programs from Theatre to Computer Science, and more. We’re especially thankful for the alumni who stepped up to support the Future Focus Fund for students facing challenges due to COVID-19 this spring.

As Ally, a Future Focus Scholarship recipient, says: If it weren’t for people like you, I probably wouldn’t be at Parkside this year. Thank you to all of the donors who supported this life changing opportunity for me.”

Thank you for showing your Parkside pride in many ways, including giving. You are making a difference to students, faculty, and the whole UW-Parkside community!
