Foundation Giving

Corporate Giving and Foundation Giving provide crucial support to all areas of campus. Some of the most significant impacts across the University of Wyoming campus have come from the remarkable support of corporations. Foundations have made such a lasting impact on Wyoming’s students and the colleges, programs, and facilities that support them. Gifts campus-wide have built buildings, created new programs, and underwritten research that changes the world as we know it.

Corporations and Foundations Make Long-Term Investments in UW

Some of the biggest impacts across the University of Wyoming campus have come from the support of corporations and foundations. Foundations give because it is part of their core mission. Within closely defined parameters, foundations seek to make the world a better place. Corporations also give for the same reason—because they want to be good corporate citizens in their communities. Both also seek a return on investment—that is, measurable outcomes that confirm they’ve made smart philanthropic decisions. The UW Foundation strives in every way to honor this contract, and it shows. Student by student, corporation- and foundation- supported scholarships have built a wealth of human capital.

Robert H. N. Ho Family Foundation

The Hong Kong-based Robert H. N. Ho Family Foundation established a professorship in the Department of Philosophy and Religious Studies in 2018. The foundation has the dual mission to foster appreciation of Chinese arts and culture and to cultivate a deeper understanding of Buddhism in the context of contemporary life, and it offers grants to institutions to establish teaching positions in Buddhist studies. UW’s application was selected by an international panel of Buddhist scholars.

Tucker Foundation

A gift from the Tucker Foundation supports the Malcolm Wallop Civic Engagement Project, which builds on the legacy of U.S. Senator Malcolm Wallop’s distinguished career as a public servant and sponsors significant discussions on issues of public interest across the state of Wyoming. The Tucker Foundation provides financial support including scholarships and grants to schools and nonprofits that foster character in young people and the skills for a productive and happy life. The foundation also supports environmental conservation.

Virginia Hill Foundation

The Virginia Hill Foundation supports the Virginia Hill UW Honors Scholarship for out-of-state or nontraditional students enrolled in the UW Honors College. The Honors College supports intellectually curious students from all majors who are creative, inspired by diverse ideas, and seek a greater understanding of their place in society. Superb faculty and small classes lead to an invigorating and highly effective learning environment.
