Who We Are

The University of Wisconsin-Parkside Foundation connects the visions and passions of donors with the mission of the University of Wisconsin-Parkside. Founded in 1985 and recognized by the IRS as a 501(c)(3) organization, an independent board of directors governs the Foundation. It is organized and operates exclusively for charitable and educational purposes, for the benefit of the University of Wisconsin-Parkside.

With the support of the Foundation, Parkside is able to transform higher education, student lives, and the communities served by the university. All gifts, large and small, advance Parkside’s continued growth and success.



Our mission is to support the University by raising funds that will enhance access to educational excellence and to promote mutually beneficial partnerships.


Our vision is to be an essential provider of resources, partnerships, and advocacy for the University to enhance educational, cultural, economic, and community opportunities.
