Superior Day of Giving

The University of Wisconsin-Superior Foundation’s seventh annual Superior Day of Giving, which took place May 4, raised more than $200,000 in support of UW-Superior and its students.

“The UW-Superior Foundation couldn’t be more grateful to the Yellowjacket community for its generosity during this 24-hour giving challenge,” said Jeanne Thompson, vice chancellor for University Advancement. “During our Day of Giving, 300 alumni, community members, faculty and staff, and friends joined together to benefit student scholarships, academic programs and more.”

Promoted largely through social media and e-mail communications, the Superior Day of Giving is an opportunity for alumni, parents, community partners, businesses, faculty, staff and students to join together to support the important work being done at UW-Superior through the Superior Fund.

With the event falling on May 4, which each year prompts a flurry of “Star Wars”-themed messages on social media around the movie quote, “May the Force (4th) be with you,” the UW-Superior Foundation decided to get on board with the lighthearted “Star Wars” theme this year.

Gifts during the Superior Day of Giving benefitted the Superior Fund; UW-Superior Athletics; Campus Recreation; Music Department; Human Behavior, Justice and Diversity Department; Gender Equity Resource Center; and the Lake Superior Research Institute Superior Floating Classroom.

Although the special donation period has ended, the UW-Superior Foundation continues to see its impact.

“We are thrilled at the contributions still coming in to support the Yellowjacket tradition,” said Thompson. “Our Superior Fund supports the ongoing work of the UW-Superior Foundation throughout the whole year, and even if community members missed Superior Day of Giving, their contribution can still make an impact on our students.”

Individuals may make a gift online and can also mail a check to the UW-Superior Foundation , PO Box 2000, Old Main 237, Superior, WI 54880.
