Annual Giving

Annual Giving

Annual Giving is the only fundraising program of the university that reaches all alumni, parents, faculty, staff, and friends each year to offer giving opportunities for direct support of UW’s colleges, departments, and programs. This creates a vital and dependable source of private support to help the University of Wyoming fulfill its mission to become one of the nation’s finest public land-grant research universities.

Charlotte Browning

Charlotte Browning has given annual gifts since 1989 to support the UW Choral Foundation. When Charlotte was a senior in high school, she won a contest and was selected to go with UW Chorale on a European collegiate tour. Her incredible memories of that trip sparked her interest in becoming a music teacher herself, and so she came to UW. After graduating in 1976, she became a music teacher and eventually the principal of Scottsbluff Elementary, until her recent retirement. Because of her time with UW Chorale and her closeness with the Choral Foundation, she says, “That’s who gets my money!” Charlotte will continue to support the Choral Foundation in the coming years and loves to share memories of her time in Laramie.

Lindmier Family

Wyoming history is a passion shared by many. Tom Lindmier and his brothers Bob and Jeff believe in the importance of Wyoming history, an appreciation instilled by their father William C. Lindmier, Jr., or Bill. During Wyoming’s settlement, Bill’s family were homesteaders, plumbers, legislators, and other positions in public service. Through their mother Irene (Manning), they were ranchers, freighters, and veterans of World War I. Bill served as well—in the Navy during World War II—and afterwards he worked as a fireman for the Chicago, Burlington & Quincy Railroad (Burlington Northern). He joined his father W. C. Lindmier in Douglas Plumbing and Heating and then established his own plumbing business. Throughout his life, Bill collected a legacy in the history of railroads, the Boy Scouts, the Navy, and homesteading, including photographs, train tickets, stories, and more. This material will be preserved in perpetuity at the American Heritage Center. UW is so thankful for the Lindmiers’ thoughtful contribution to the AHC’s outstanding collections.

Peter Kline

UW alum Peter Kline is a senior vice president, wealth management advisor, and portfolio manager of Merrill Lynch Wealth Management, and he credits his UW education for an amazing career. Peter also founded Marathons with Meaning, a program dedicated to making running more accessible for people with disabilities. About success, Peter will tell you that there’s no secret sauce, no easy trick—just keep moving. He encourages us all to love unconditionally and give of our time, our hearts, and our energies—the best parts of ourselves—to help others. In the end, it’s those experiences that will truly measure life’s successful moments. Peter has kept in touch with UW through his support of the College of Business to pay forward the education he received so many years ago.
