Chancellor’s gift creates endowed fund, provides support across campus

Chancellor Tammy Evetovich and Mark Evetovich

The University of Wisconsin-Platteville Foundation announces a generous gift from Chancellor Tammy Evetovich and her husband Mark Evetovich, which will establish an endowed fund to support general campus needs, benefiting students, faculty and staff for years to come.

Chancellor Evetovich says that, as educators, they are both aware of challenges and opportunities facing institutions of learning and are committed to finding ways to make an impact.

“We both have a very strong commitment to education and understand the impact it has had on our lives and the generations to come in our family,” said Chancellor Evetovich. “This fund is a way for us to give back. We are committed to assuring that all those who want the opportunity to go to college, stay in college and graduate, can do so. We are hopeful this support will help this great university lean into its strengths as an access institution and assure our students, faculty and staff can be successful. We encourage others to find a way to give back as well, whether it be through time, effort, talent or a monetary gift. It all has an impact.”

In recognition of their giving, this spring they will be inducted into the UW-Platteville Foundation’s 1866 Cornerstone Society, which recognizes Pioneers with the highest level of giving. 

“We are profoundly grateful for the chancellor and Mark’s generous philanthropic gift, which will undoubtedly pave the way for positive change and empower countless lives,” said Joshua Boots, assistant vice chancellor of Development and Alumni Engagement. “Their compassion and dedication to making a difference at UW-Platteville inspire us all.”
