May the spirit of giving be with you

In a galaxy not far, far away...Superior, WI, actually.

We are genuinely humbled by the incredible support of the Yellowjacket family during this year's RECORD-BREAKING Superior Day of Giving. Thank you to everyone who awakened their power by contributing!

This May the 4th, $200,587.20 was raised for the Superior Fund, Yellowjacket Athletics, student scholarships, and so many other important Foundation funds. Contributions also supported the Together We Are Superior $20 million campaign. Read on to learn about the ways Yellowjackets supported students on the Superior Day of Giving.

Superior Fund

Superior Fund

The Superior Fund is a top campaign priority. It provides the Foundation with the financial resources to increase its level of scholarships, undergraduate research, and other programming for our deserving students. Thanks to Steve ’72 and Annie Bergquist, all Superior Fund gifts were matched dollar-for-dollar up to $25,000!

Named in honor of the color lavender, which can represent both women's and LGBTQ2+ experiences, contributions to the Lavender ‘Jacket Support Fund will be used to aid in the events, services, and initiatives of gender and sexuality programming on campus.

Superior Floating Classroom

Superior Floating Classroom

Imagine conducting educational programs and research on a state-of-the-art vessel right on Lake Superior. That’s exactly what the Superior Floating Classroom initiative hopes to offer for UW-Superior students and the community. A joint initiative between the Foundation and Lake Superior Research Institute, the Superior Floating Classroom will be similar to the L.L. Smith Jr. that operated from 1978 to 2012, and your support is needed to make this vision a reality.
