2012 was a landmark year. The University of Wyoming Foundation celebrated 50 years of successful strategic partnership with the University of Wyoming. One thing is for sure: we could not have done it without you, our loyal donors, alumni, and friends. It is due to your enthusiastic support that Wyoming’s university has reached such heights of excellence, and we would like to express our deepest appreciation.

In fiscal year 2012, private giving totaled $40.1 million from 23,551 corporate, foundation, and individual donors, who over the years have created a total of 1,234 endowments that support scholarships, fellowships, professorships, and discretionary, excellence, and program funds. UW’s giving total includes $11.5 million in estate gifts and over $5 million in annual giving, as well as gifts in support of Wyoming Public Media and the Cowboy Joe Club.

This is the second consecutive year—and the third year overall—that the UW Foundation has raised over $40 million in private donations. We do our best to honor the trust you place in us, and we are more dedicated than ever to raising private support for UW while also strengthening the university through prudent investment and financial management. Our success is your success—this public-private partnership helps ensure that Wyoming’s university keeps striving to be one of the best.
