The Impact of Your Gift

Your donation makes our promise possible. Your support helps to answer the unique challenge of providing students with the faculty, learning opportunities, and financial resources they need to succeed.

Your contribution also removes barriers and gives students access to opportunities they otherwise may not have. Your gifts support study abroad, a range of campus organizations, and internships at industry-leading companies. Together, your generosity becomes grants and scholarships and empowers our commitment to diversity.

Preparing students to meet the demands of an increasingly competitive and global economy is a top priority at UW-Parkside and for the UW-Parkside Foundation. Students are taught and inspired, innovation is sought and achieved, and our community is served and connected—all thanks to the support of generous donations.  


Career Preparation

Experiential learning, internships, and other experiences made possible by your generosity contribute to success in jobs and further studies. These experiences are part of why more than 90% of our pre-med and pre-health program graduates who apply to professional schools are accepted, and 95% of our business, economics, and computing graduates find jobs within six months of graduation.


Enriching Experiences

Parkside students have access to more than 300 arts and humanities performances, exhibits, and cultural events each year, in the state-of-the-art Rita Tallent Picken Regional Center for Arts and Humanities. Your support makes it possible for us to showcase student talents and offer this level of cultural opportunities for the greater community.
