Every fall, the University of Wyoming Foundation spearheads UW Giving Day -- a unique 24-hour philanthropic event that encourages donors from across the globe to give to UW on-campus groups. In its beginning, Giving Day was reserved for campus departments, programs and university initiatives, but now Giving Day includes student clubs and organizations.
Last fall, a record number of student organizations and clubs registered with the UW Foundation to participate with their own Giving Day campaigns. In total, donors gave over $300,000 to almost 40 student clubs and organizations.
Four incoming undergraduate students to the University of Wyoming who are associated with the Haub School of Environment and Natural Resources have been selected for the prestigious Tomé Scholars to Fellows Program, which provides transformational experiences for future leaders in the field of environment and natural resources. The program was established at UW in 2021 by a major gift from the Tomé Foundation.
Tomé Scholars are Shayla Babits of Lander, Gabriella Paterson of Powell, Lilly McGever of Phoenix, Ariz., and Mariela Via-Reque of Sarasota, Fla.
Paying it forward. Investing in the future leaders of America. These simple concepts of generosity and commitment are at the core of a generous gift to the University of Wyoming that will have a lasting impact on students, faculty and the university community. The gift will establish three funds that will directly support students and faculty in the Center for Professional Selling, the dean of the College of Business and UW Athletics.
Students will benefit from scholarships, travel and competition expenses and stipends. The faculty component will help UW recruit and retain promising sales program faculty.
