What an honor it is to serve as chairman of the MUW Foundation Board of Directors.

As we work together to support The W, our students of today, and the ongoing work of faculty and staff, we are committed to providing an outstanding educational experience inside and outside the classroom. As a scholarship recipient during my collegiate career at The W, I was grateful to be given additional financial support toward my educational program. Today such needs continue to exist as students seek to fill the “unmet need” gap between their financial resources and those funds identified to support them.

Since the MUW Foundation was incorporated in 1965, private giving has changed the face of our University. Expectations are high, and we are able to meet them with the generosity of dedicated alumni and friends like you. When students enroll, the scholarship support they receive, the academic and extracurricular programming offered to them and the facilities and resources available for their use are enhanced by our gifts.

We present our Fiscal Year 2017 Honor Roll of Donors in the following pages to recognize the generosity of those who have chosen to support The W with contributions between July 1, 2016, and June 30, 2017. Thanks to the financial support of alumni, friends, businesses, corporations, foundations and other organizations, The W is thriving and continuing to grow.

Giving year after year is essential in maintaining this positive momentum. Private gifts, prudent management, a thoughtful Foundation Board and a dedicated staff have helped the Foundation reach new heights. As we look at what we have achieved and what we want to accomplish in the future, students always remain at the heart of our work. Please join me in giving to the MUW Foundation and being a part of transforming students’ lives at this extraordinary university.
