Your Opportunity to Support Yellowjacket Students

Superior Day of Giving is Tuesday, June 2

Superior Day of Giving 2020

The University of Wisconsin-Superior Foundation will host its sixth annual Superior Day of Giving on Tuesday, June 2. While this special day is not new, the circumstances surrounding this year’s event are unprecedented. With students and faculty quickly adapting to remote learning last semester and students facing many challenges as a result of the pandemic, the need for support from our alumni, friends and community members has never been greater.

Recognizing that these are difficult times for nearly everyone, we’ve decided to press ahead with this year’s Superior Day of Giving and do what Yellowjackets do best, swarm together to support one another. Gifts of any amount make a significant impact and support students’ academic and career-preparation goals by providing scholarships and educational programming.

 “Recently many alumni and friends reached out with humbled concern and well wishes for our students and employees,” said Jeanne Thompson, Vice Chancellor for University Advancement. “Others provided kudos to our class of 2020, who are waiting to walk across the stage to celebrate their academic achievement until December. Our sixth annual Superior Day of Giving is another way to continue that generous and caring commitment by financially supporting our students and university. Contributions received during this 24-hour fundraising drive will make a direct impact on the challenges of today and successes of tomorrow.”

Yellowjacket Athletics’ First Telethon

New this year, Yellowjackets Athletics is joining in to raise funds for the Champions Club, which benefits Yellowjacket athletic teams and the Athletic Department. Through an inaugural Yellowjacket Athletics Telethon, funds will be raised for items such as team apparel, travel, equipment, technology and more.

No matter the size of your gift or whether you are interested in benefitting UW-Superior students through scholarships, programming, or athletics, the Superior Day of Giving is the perfect opportunity. We can’t thank you enough for your support of our students and campus community, and hope you’ll join us by making a contribution and helping us reach our goal of 200 donors.
