For the third consecutive year, the University of Wisconsin-Platteville Foundation achieved a record year in donations. Thanks to the generosity of alumni, friends and corporate partners, more than $7.4 million was raised during the 2022 fiscal year, which ended June 30.

“I am extremely grateful for each individual who made this success possible,” said UW-Platteville interim chancellor Dr. Tammy Evetovich. “This is a true testament to the pride our alumni and friends have in this university, and their generosity enables us to fulfill our mission and ensure our students’ success on campus and as they enter their careers.” 

“The kindness of UW-Platteville alumni, friends and corporate partners has been heartwarming,” added Josh Boots, assistant vice chancellor for Development and Alumni Engagement. “The Foundation continues to set records due to the generosity of our great Pioneer family. It is inspiring to see our students, faculty and staff benefit from these great gifts.”

The UW-Platteville Foundation received over 8,000 gifts, with the majority of the gifts benefiting the Pioneer Annual Fund. There were more than 5,300 donors during the fiscal year.

“The board is extremely pleased with the record-setting performance. A number of impressive benchmarks were established under the leadership of Josh Boots and the performance of his staff,” said Joseph Denk, board chair of the UW-Platteville Foundation. “We look forward to continued growth and development as the Foundation pursues aggressive fundraising goals and objectives in the coming year.”

The funds provide scholarships, support academic programs and capital building projects and enrich student-life experiences.
