UWM Gives to UWM

UWM gives to UWM kicks off this month

Annual Campaign raises money for UWM programming

There are many reasons people make charitable gifts in support of UWM. One person may make a year-end gift to ease the tax burden. Another person may be influenced to give by a fellow faculty or staff member, alumnus or friend. Many faculty and staff give to help current and future students.

The main reason people give is because they believe in our university and want to help us fulfill our mission. Most donors say they want to know that their contribution is making UWM a better place to live, work and learn.

If you have a campus mailbox, you’ve probably already received a letter inviting your participation in this year’s campaign. Last year, nearly 700 faculty and staff members banded together to raise nearly $400,000 for UWM scholarships, academic and research programs, faculty enhancements and literally hundreds of other programs at UWM.

If you have questions, please feel free to contact Chris Ciancimino, director of annual giving, at ciancim2@uwm.edu or 414-229-3017.
