In 2012, we celebrated a significant milestone—the dynamic, vital partnership of the University of Wyoming Foundation and its university turned 50, and we have you to thank. The loyalty, generosity, and enthusiasm of our many donors, friends, and alumni continue to ensure the success of Wyoming’s students.
We are fifty years old, but the 1990s began the modern era of philanthropy at the University of Wyoming. Our fundraising programs—and hence our university—have been transformed by private engagement, public state matching, and the exponentially increasing generosity of donors and friends.
This year has been no exception. Private giving for the fiscal year ending June 30, 2012, totaled $40.1 million from 23,551 corporate, foundation, and individual donors. It is another milestone, the second year in a row—and the first time in UW history—that the UW Foundation has raised over $40 million in private support in two consecutive years.
Thanks to unprecedented scholarship and program support, including Hathaway, our students are not just surviving—they’re thriving. The expectations for our students, faculty, and programs continue to rise, as they do for ourselves. Private giving continues to reach unprecedented levels, and assets managed by the foundation have grown significantly over the years, allowing donors to support an expanding number of students, faculty, and academic programs during times when many universities have had to cut back. Our greatest era continues at the University of Wyoming.
We are profoundly grateful to all those who have invested in the future of the University of Wyoming. It’s your continued support that launches us confidently into the future.
