The mission of the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse Foundation, Inc., an independent non-profit Wisconsin corporation that is qualified as a tax-exempt public charity under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code, is to promote the welfare of the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse through charitable and educational activities that include encouraging, soliciting, receiving, managing and administering gifts from alumni, friends, businesses and other organizations to support scholarships, awards, grants, projects and programs that advance the mission of the University.
ONE WORD: FOUNDATION
Adding just one word - Foundation - to the University's name will make sure that your gift delivers maximum benefit to our campus. In your will or trust; on your check; or in any other transfer document, such as a deed, beneficiary designation or stock power, direct your gift to the University of Wisconsin - La Crosse Foundation to ensure that your gift for La Crosse will be administered in La Crosse by the Foundation and will not be administered in Madison by UW System.
