The UW-Sheboygan Foundation
The UW-Sheboygan Foundation is a nonprofit organization founded by area residents and UW-Sheboygan alumni in 1979 to support the programs and activities of the University of Wisconsin-Sheboygan through fund development and advocacy.
Fundraising and Support
Since 1979, the foundation's board of local citizens has worked with staff and faculty to identify sources of support for the Sheboygan's local UW System campus, which is one of the 13 University of Wisconsin Colleges. In August 1985, the Board of Trustees inaugurated a festive annual fundraising event--Chicken & All That Jazz—which has since become an anticipated feature of Sheboygan's summer calendar and annually brings some 1,500 supporters to the UW-Sheboygan campus. Additional fundraising events have been added over the years, including an Annual Dinner, the Golf Outing and more.
Scholarship Assistance and Community Growth
Until recently, the focus of foundation’s efforts has been to raise scholarship assistance for deserving students, many of whom juggle work and family responsibilities in addition to their schoolwork. It is now engaged in broadening its mission to become a full partner in UW Sheboygan's growth as an asset to its community and region, including providing support for campus programs and facility improvements. The UW-Sheboygan Foundation’s Annual Fund campaign helps to raise additional financial support for the Foundation’s charitable activities throughout the year.
