School of Health Sciences and Wellness Giving

Giving back and giving to the School of Health Sciences and Wellness

The UW-Stevens Point School of School of Health Sciences and Wellness is grateful to the many alumni and friends who have chosen to give back by contributing to our programs. Your gifts can significantly change a student’s life. It can also shape the future of health care in Central and Northcentral Wisconsin by helping us build a workforce who will one day become the leaders of our region.

  1. Make a gift to an existing scholarship fund: Read about current SHSW scholarships

Make a major gift

Unlike annual gifts, most major gifts create endowments – perhaps to establish a scholarship, support a faculty position, or support a particular program. Great care is made in matching donor interest with the many gift opportunities that exist in the UWSP School of Health Sciences and Wellness. Once a donor has identified an initiative they would like to fund, we provide a detailed proposal that outlines the school’s need, the impact of their gift, and the stewardship process which allows us to keep the lifelong partnership intact. Major gifts create, supplement and, in many cases, perpetuate the extensive learning opportunities of students enrolled in the UWSP School of Health Sciences and Wellness.

Planned Giving

“Leave Your Legacy” – Private giving to the School of Health Sciences and Wellness helps to ensure that the college and our departments can continue to meet the diverse educational needs of our students. Although much of the support for our college comes in the form of cash donations, many donors choose to leave their legacy, and realize tremendous tax savings, through a planned gift. A planned gift is simply defined as a donation that requires some form of planning. Whether you seek to avoid capital gains taxes on appreciated stocks or are looking to transfer assets into a life-long income stream, there are countless planned giving vehicles that can create a win-win situation for you and our students.  

Thank you in advance for your gift to the UWSP School of Health Sciences and Wellness. You will receive an acknowledgment of your gift from the UWSP Foundation Office, as well as a receipt that can be used for tax purposes. To discuss your wishes to make a major gift or a planned gift, please contact College of Professional Studies Major Gifts Officer Gina Miresse or 715-346-3304.
