We are delighted to present the MUW Foundation’s Fiscal Year 2016 Honor Roll of Donors in this issue of Visions magazine.

As you read so much good news in this issue, you will understand why it is a fantastic time to be a part of The W. Since 1884, The W has built on its stellar reputation with one achievement after the next. With the support of our donors listed in the following pages, we continue to strengthen the university’s longstanding commitment to preparing students for the future.

Private funding from individuals and organizations makes the difference at The W. Our donors know that investing in The W by giving to the MUW Foundation provides exceptional learning experiences and environments for our students both inside and outside the classroom. The W’s progress and that of its students would not be possible without our donors and their appreciation of the value of a W education and the opportunities it provides.

The MUW Foundation Board of Directors has engaged Sinclair, Townes & Company assist us with a comprehensive study of how our fund raising efforts may best meet The W’s needs. It is our desire to help make The W’s vision for its future a reality, and we look forward to learning more from this study about how we can achieve our shared goals. To do this, we are counting on you. You make the difference, and that difference is even more crucial in lean budget years.

On behalf of the MUW Foundation Board of Directors, I would like to express my deep appreciation to our Fiscal Year 2016 donors listed in the following pages. I hope all of you will consider making a meaningful gift to The W during Fiscal Year 2017 and join me in being a part of The W’s bright future in our community, state, region and beyond.
