Major Giving

UW Foundation directors of development work closely with individual donors and with the university to focus on the priorities of each, helping to guide the significant and thoughtful commitments that have a major impact on the future of Wyoming’s university.

Directors of Development Help Donors and UW Realize Their Goals

From connection to culmination, directors of development focus on ongoing communication and building relationships with donors who have the capacity and affinity to donate a major gift. A major gift is defined as a gift of over $25,000. These are often used to establish an endowment, which allows the students of yesterday to leave a legacy that impacts the students of tomorrow. Directors of development also know their assigned college or unit inside and out—its needs and future goals and its plans for research and expansion. In this way, they are perfectly suited to help donors achieve the impact they hope for with their generous gifts and to help UW have the resources it needs to achieve its long-term goals.
