Giving to UW-Parkside

Enriching Minds. Changing Lives.

Your support puts an outstanding education within reach of all of our students. We're an inclusive, multicultural university that emphasizes preparing our students for success in their professional and civic, as well as personal, lives. Parkside is proud of its dedicated faculty and staff who work to fulfill the university's mission to serve communities on and beyond campus.

Above all, Parkside is about our students — their contributions on campus, throughout the region, and across the globe. Our commitment to cultural enrichment, our deep appreciation of the arts, and our pursuit of cutting-edge research opportunities are our promise to enrich minds and change lives.

Stories of Giving

Your donations make our promise possible. Your support 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.

Your gifts also help build thriving athletic programs, buy musical instruments, and enhance state-of-the-art facilities. Donations are investments in the arts and humanities, supporting the creativity and hard work our faculty and students put in before ever stepping out on a stage at The Rita. And they're part of why more than 90 percent of our pre-med and pre-health program graduates who apply to professional schools are accepted. Your gifts help our students succeed.

Every gift to the Foundation adds to the strength and scope of the university's mission. We invite you to give in a way that aligns with your priorities. The following are areas where your philanthropy can make the greatest difference.
