The difference between an adequate educational experience and an exceptional one is often based on the generosity and commitment of a university’s alumni and friends.  Since 1965, MUW’s Foundation has funded the future of our university through scholarships, faculty support, and educational tools.  Private contributions make it possible for our students to thrive in an atmosphere of excellence, ensuring the continued legacy of our Long Blue Line.

I’m pleased to announce that total number of gifts to MUW grew an impressive 35% in 2013.  The number of donors increased by 16%.  Many thanks to all who opened your hearts and shared your time, talent, and treasure.  Your generosity enables our University to uphold its hallmark of academic distinction, changing lives along the way.

Take a look at how your contributions make a difference in the lives of our students and faculty.  You’ll be amazed at what your gift can do.
