Annual Giving

"Gifts to Annual Giving are the lifeblood of the university. They make possible a plethora of special uses and projects that would otherwise go unfunded. Donors giving major gifts should always remember to continue their annual giving support. And anyone giving for the first time should understand that this is a critical area. Without Annual Giving, the university would lose its heartbeat."  Alan K. Simpson, Class of 1954

Annual Giving is the only fundraising program of the university that reaches all alumni, parents, faculty, staff, and friends on a yearly basis to offer giving opportunities for direct support of UW's colleges, departments, and programs. UW Annual Giving focuses on acquiring regular yearly contributions, thus creating a vital and dependable source of non-legislative support for Wyoming's university.

Although the State of Wyoming provides the base of funding UW needs to operate a modern university, it takes the annual support of alumni, parents, faculty, staff, and friends for UW's colleges, departments, and programs to excel. Because of annual gifts, discretionary funds are available when there is an unexpected need or a sudden opportunity.

Contributors to UW Annual Giving programs may designate their gifts to any area, college, department, or program within the university. Please click here to make a gift online using our secure server and help the University of Wyoming fulfill its mission of being one of the nation's finest public land-grant research universities.


The President's Society

The President's Society is the premier leadership giving circle for alumni, parents, faculty, staff, and friends of the University of Wyoming, and it is the flagship of the UW Annual Giving program. Individuals, households, or businesses with a gift or combination of gifts of $1,000 or greater to the University of Wyoming during the fiscal year (July 1 through June 30) are recognized as members of the President's Society and are eligible for its benefits. At $2,500, individuals, households, or businesses are recognized as members of President's Society Gold and are eligible for more benefits. Either level gives the satisfaction of knowing that students are helped by your generosity.

Members of the President's Society enjoy exclusive privileges, including a subscription to UWyo Magazine, special communications concerning major University of Wyoming initiatives, invitations to private University of Wyoming events, recognition as a member of the President's Society (unless you would like to remain anonymous), and much more.


Cowboy Call

The student voice of UWCowboy Callplays a vital role in reconnecting, establishing, and maintaining relationships with alumni, parents, and friends who generously support the University of Wyoming through Annual Giving. Enthusiastic and proud UW students gather to offer University of Wyoming supporters the opportunity to share college memories, to find out what's new on campus, and to hear about current events through a calling program.

Students representing UW colleges call approximately 60,000 alumni, parents, and friends of the university each year, and each year thousands of generous donors provide annual gifts to the university through Cowboy Call alone.
