GREEN BAY (WLUK) -- Two university campuses are combining their foundations.
The UW-Marinette County Foundation, Inc. is consolidating with the UW-Green Bay Foundation to create efficiencies and eliminate duplication of fiduciary duties.
“The missions of the two entities overlap and it makes sense to work collaboratively with the University’s affiliated Foundation for fiduciary purposes,” says BA Berquist, board chair of the UW-Marinette County Foundation. “The local UW College campus was integrated with UW-Green Bay in 2018 and now the campus offers a growing number of classes and even four-year degree options. The time has arrived to roll up our sleeves and work together to re-envision what public higher education looks like in our region going forward.”
Donors to the UW-Marinette Foundation will see some changes in how their support benefits public higher education. Donors can still support important programs offered by the university, the only difference is that gifts will flow through the UW-Green Bay Foundation. Gifts can also be restricted for use at the UW-Green Bay, Marinette Campus and donor intent on existing endowed funds will be honored.
