University of Wyoming Foundation



Private gifts are a very important source of revenue for establishing, maintaining, and enhancing programs at the University of Wyoming. Since its inception in 1962, the University of Wyoming Foundation has been a private, nonprofit 501(c)(3) corporation established to solicit, manage, and invest donations. Among the funds invested by the Foundation are endowments, life income trusts and annuities, outright gifts, reserve balances, and cash.


Providing a reliable, growing source of income to the University of Wyoming is one of the Foundation's main objectives, and its investment policies are intended to preserve or increase the real principal value of its endowment.


The objective and one of the primary benefits of endowed gifts is to provide permanent capital and a dependable stream of income for the University and its programs despite trends in the economy or administrative changes.
