2021 UW Giving Day Breaks All Records


The seventh annual University of Wyoming Giving Day, held during Homecoming this year, was record-breaking -- raising discretionary funds that benefit programs large and small at Wyoming’s only four-year, land-grant university.

“This year, with over 100 campus units involved, three times the financial support and over 1,200 more donors than before, Giving Day was a huge success for all,” says Jack Tennant, the UW Foundation’s director of annual giving.

UW Giving Day 2021 raised a total of $2,421,333 from 3,629 donors across the U.S. and the world in 108 campaigns that benefit programs across campus. This breaks the record set in 2019 of over $1.6 million from 1,110 donors.

UW Giving Day, UW’s annual day of giving spearheaded by the UW Foundation, takes place online at and across campus. The 2021 annual celebration of giving was held Oct. 20-21, noon to noon, with the theme of #givegold.

Gift to UW Supports Mule Deer Research

A $250,000 gift from the Muley Fanatic Foundation to the Haub School of Environment and Natural Resources at the University of Wyoming will support sound science that advances the conservation of mule deer while supporting the growth and development of future leaders in wildlife science.

The gift establishes the Muley Fanatic Foundation Excellence Fund, which will support a graduate student working to further mule deer conservation.

“It is with great pleasure and excitement we make this pledge to a program that has, time and time again, shown exceptional leadership and trailblazing efforts to be nothing short of stellar,” says Joshua Coursey, Muley Fanatic Foundation president and CEO. “The investment to further understand the challenges facing mule deer, the icon of the West, is worth every effort.”

“This gift underscores an incredible partnership with two organizations that walk the walk when it comes to their commitment to sound wildlife management,” says Brian Nesvik, director of the Wyoming Game and Fish Department. “I give the Muley Fanatic Foundation and Dr. Kevin Monteith a lot of credit for recognizing the importance of scientific research and its critical role in conservation. These two organizations are doing it right, combining the passion of a highly respected sportsmen organization with the proven expertise of a world-class research team. It’s partnerships like this that make a difference for wildlife and reflect the model for how we get things done in Wyoming.”
