UWL Giving Day 2021
24 hours - 1500 Donors - One Day to Make a Difference

On Tuesday, November 30, UW-La Crosse will host its annual UWL Giving Day! For 24 hours, alumni and friends from around the world will come together in celebration and support of university students and programs. 

 

Giving Day demonstrates the immediate impact of the UWL family. It provides students, friends, families and alumni the chance to work as a collective group, in a short amount of time, to give back to campus and the areas they care about most.

 

Multiple donors have offered generous challenge funds to inspire others to join them on Giving Day. More than $40,000 in challenge funds are waiting to be unlocked! Contributions of any size make a difference, especially as we all come together to provide opportunities for students, faculty and campus programs.


As a proud UWL supporter, we invite you to help us reach 1,500 donors on Giving Day. Make a gift, share in the excitement with #uwlgivingday, and track the day’s progress!
