Measuring our success: Slideshow of challenge-gift celebration

Named Scholarship Reception slideshowThe success of an all-out push to increase the number of scholarships available to students at UW-Green Bay over the past 18 months was the reason for a celebration at the Weidner Center Sept. 26.

Challenge gifts in the amount of $500,000 by the L.G. Wood Foundation, $250,000 by the Green Bay Packers Foundation and a seven-figure donation by an anonymous donor prompted cumulative matching donations by dozens of University alumni and community supporters. The reception celebrated that generosity by bringing together some of those donors and the scholarship recipients.

Speakers included Chancellor Gary L. Miller, Packers President Mark Murphy, Assistant Chancellor for Advancement Jeanne Stangel, alumna and donor Diane Ford, and student scholarship recipient Eva Cruz-Martinez. Photos by campus photographer Eric Miller and photo intern Samantha Zingsheim.

Photos from Oct. 4 donor-recipient scholarship reception

We included a photo and link in Friday’s edition of the weekly Log Extra, but for the benefit of those who subscribe only to the text-only daily newsletter…. There was a huge turnout Oct. 4 for the annual Chancellor’s Named Scholarship Reception, where student recipients meet major donors. A generous challenge gift this past year helped increase the overall endowment by more than $1 million, creating dozens of new scholarships. See gallery.
 

Slideshow: Chancellor’s Named Scholarship Reception

Chancellor's Named Scholarship ReceptionThe stage of the Weidner Center was packed Oct. 4 on the occasion of the Chancellor’s Named Scholarship Reception. The annual event brings together the UW-Green Bay student recipients of named scholarships and the community philanthropists who make the awards possible.

Students took turns displaying “appreciation” messages as they posed with their respective donors prior to the program

Speakers during the event included UW-Green Bay Chancellor Tom Harden; Jeanne Stangel, interim assistant chancellor for university advancement; donor Kate Meuuwsen; and student Sarah Wanek, recipient of Prast Family Scholarship.

The fall 2013 gathering was the largest on record. Contributing to the big turnout was a banner year for scholarships. Stangel explained that nearly four dozen new scholarships totaling more than $1.6 million in endowment contributions have been created in the last 16 months.

The flurry of philanthropic activity was sparked largely by a $500,000 leadership challenge gift directed by brothers Rick, Dick and Chuck Baer from the sunsetting L.G. Wood Foundation. The brothers said they chose the UW-Green Bay scholarship fund because the university was a favorite of their grandfather, businessman L.G. Wood, and their parents, Frederick and Patricia Baer. The gift provided a dollar-for-dollar match for all news gifts earmarked for student scholarships.

Here’s a nice story about gratefulness…


When UWGB donor Marcia Mueller was in town for a scholarship reception, she asked that all recipients of the Craig Mueller Scholarships (more than 20 were on hand for the reception) put their name in a hat for two free Packers tickets that she would provide. The winner was Holly Anderson, a junior from Madison, majoring in arts management and design arts. Holly took her mom to the game against the Minnesota Vikings — their first ever Packers game. So grateful for the experience, Holly contacted the UW-Green Bay Advancement Office to see how she could reach Marcia, and thank her for the “amazing” time. Holly hopes to one day become a community arts developer, similar to visiting artist Candy Chang, who spent time at UW-Green Bay in fall as part of the Campus Common Theme. “I want to work with a community to establish their needs, then figure out how I can help them using art.”

Snapshots: Scholarship Reception celebrates donor/student partnership

Named Scholarship Reception, Oct. 5, 2012More than 300 people jammed the stage of the Weidner Center earlier this month for the first of two donor/recipient scholarship receptions hosted by UW-Green Bay.

The Oct. 5 event was a chance for community donors responsible for creating named, endowed scholarships to meet the award-winning students who are benefitting from that generosity.

Marcia Mueller, representing her late brother Craig, posed (above) with a large delegation of Mueller family scholarship recipients.  Another program, celebrating Founders Association scholarships, is planned for Oct. 19.
