The UW Foundation has been a dynamic partner with the University of Wyoming for 53 years. Through the generosity of our many alumni and friends, the UW Foundation raises an average of $47.1 million a year in private support-money that goes to students and the faculty, staff, and programs that support them. This private support helps to make UW the best educational institution possible.
The University of Wyoming Foundation, established in 1962, is appointed by the University Board of Trustees to raise, receive, and manage private gifts to maximize support for the University of Wyoming. It is an independent, nonprofit corporation with a Board of Directors comprised of up to 30 members.
