Why Give?

UW Oshkosh changes lives. Students leave the University with newly forged friendships and the knowledge and skills needed to be successful in their chosen professions. The quality of their experience is impacted by their ability to focus on academics, be challenged by and interact with faculty, and benefit from the programs, resources and facilities that help them keep pace in our ever-changing world.

Our university is a great place to live, learn and grow but we can't do it without you. Your gift to the UW Oshkosh Foundation will help us change tomorrow together — one student, program, faculty member and facility at a time. Size doesn't matter. Even small gifts make big impacts. Your gift will count forever in the lives of those who benefit from your generosity.
