Acknowledgement & Donor Recognition

Development officers of the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay take their role as stewards of your gift very seriously, and work hard to ensure your contribution is properly reported and recognized.

Gift Acknowledgements

All contributions to the University are acknowledged quickly and accurately. Acknowledgement letters and gift receipts are sent shortly after gifts are received.

Endowed Fund Reporting

Each year, donors who have established endowed funds at the University are provided reports on the status of their fund as well as a report on how the funds are being used.

Donor Recognition

The Green Bay Society

Generous philanthropic financial support is very important for UW-Green Bay to fulfill its mission and be more favorably competitive with other public and private universities. The UW-Green Bay Foundation has established The Green Bay Society to thank and further engage individuals who make major gifts and leadership annual gifts supporting UW-Green Bay.

Many people have multiple interests and they want to give to a variety of UW-Green Bay programs to help the entire University be successful. We encourage donors to give to scholarships, academics, the arts, athletics, and other priority programs and needs of the institution.

Individuals are recognized for the total amount of all gifts they make to UW-Green Bay each calendar year (Jan. 1 through Dec. 31). The names of alumni and friends who give $2,500 and greater are listed prominently as Green Bay Society members in the UWGB Foundation Annual Report Honor Roll of Donors. Annual levels of recognition are as follows:

  • $100,000 and greater
  • $50,000 to $99,999
  • $25,000 to $49,999
  • $10,000 to $24,999
  • $5,000 to $9,999
  • $2,500 to $4,999

Green Bay Society members are invited to the annual Green Bay Society Gala and other UWGB events, and they receive special communications from the University.

Other UWGB Donor Recognition Levels

In addition, names of donors who give at these levels are listed in the Annual Report Honor Roll of Donors:

  • $1,000 to $2,499
  • $500 to $999
  • $250 to $499

Note: If a donor requests that they be recognized as “anonymous,” their name will not be listed in the Annual Report Honor Roll.
