The Stout University Foundation began in 1962 with a handful of visionaries who awarded two $100 scholarships after a fundraising campaign selling commemorative buttons during homecoming week.
Thanks to the generosity of our alumni, university friends, and industry partners, in fiscal year 2023, the Foundation can award over $1.2 million in student scholarships and provide more than $3.9 million in direct support to the students, faculty, and academic programs at UW-Stout on an annual basis.
The Stout University Foundation, Inc. is guided by the Stout University Foundation Board of Directors. The board membership is comprised of 30 volunteers with a broad range of expertise that governs the current and future operations of the Stout University Foundation.
The Stout University Foundation Board of Directors is committed to the philanthropic advancement and stewardship of the Stout University Foundation's assets.
