Ryman column highlights Packers Foundation scholarship gift

We told you here previously about big news shared during October’s Chancellor’s Scholarship Dinner — namely, that the Green Bay Packers Foundation has made a $250,000 challenge grant to help fund endowed scholarships. Green Bay Press-Gazette business reporter Richard Ryman featured the good news in his Sunday (Nov. 10) business column, quoting Packers President and CEO (and UW-Green Bay Foundation Board member) Mark Murphy on the importance of the donation.

“UWGB is an outstanding university in the region, and this donation will allow it to offer more scholarships,” Murphy said. “The grant will also make UWGB more affordable for students in the area. In the long term, our hope is that this grant will increase the number of college graduates in the Green Bay community.”

Jeanne Stangel, interim assistant chancellor for university advancement, said a major announcement is forthcoming, once the Packers Foundation challenge is complete and the dollar-for-dollar match has succeeded in prompting an additional $250,000 in scholarship giving from other donors. That announcement could come quite soon, she said.

Packers President Mark Murphy got a standing ovation Friday night (Oct. 18) from an audience of 250 or more at the annual Chancellor’s Scholarship Dinner on stage at the Weidner Center. Murphy and Chancellor Tom Harden announced a major challenge gift from the Green Bay Packers Foundation to raise money for student scholarships at Green Bay’s hometown university. If other donors take advantage of the Packers dollar-for-dollar match to begin or grow their own scholarships, the final take will be an additional $500,000 for endowed scholarships. Lou LeCalsey, the UW-Green Bay Foundation president, served as emcee for the 13th annual dinner.
