Together we Rise! UW-Green Bay Day of Giving, April 3, 2024

Since its beginning, UW-Green Bay has taken bold and innovative steps to impact the lives of its students. The UW-Green Bay Day of Giving is no exception – and your gift has the ability to transform the lives of students and the region.

Maybe it’s the creativity of The Weidner’s slate of performances; maybe it’s the forward-thinking programs within the College of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences or the Cofrin School of Business; maybe you’re jazzed because of the Green Bay Phoenix Athletics teams this year. Whatever it is – whatever brilliance is firing you up – now is the time to support UW-Green Bay with a gift.

UW-Green Bay learners have been making their mark for the past 59 years. With 50,000+ graduates who have become nurses, teachers, engineers, business leaders, artists and more, Phoenix make an impression wherever they go. That impact is felt especially by communities in UW-Green Bay’s 16-county footprint, where 74% of graduates live and work after completing their degree. 

Take alumni siblings Amanda and Marcus Reitz. Through their work with Happily Ever After Animal Sanctuary, which Amanda founded in 2006 while still a UW-Green Bay student, they have taken their innovative approach to providing a forever home to abandoned dogs and cats in Northeast Wisconsin, and turned it into one of the most successful and well-known pet sanctuary’s in the region. Their passion and creativity are making a difference (for humans and their furry friends!) in the Green Bay community and beyond. 

We invite you to celebrate and support our students on April 3 by visiting With focus areas on each college, The Weidner, Phoenix Athletics, the Fund for Excellence and Need-Based Scholarships, you can choose which area to impact with your gift. 

As an added bonus, thanks to a generous matching gift from Larry and Kathy Treankler, all Giving Day donations will be matched dollar-for-dollar up to $200,000. That means your support has double the impact and help students Rise twice as high. Whether it’s $1 or $10,000 – everything counts. And PLEASE, spread the word…

It’s time to leave your #PhoenixFootprint, because just one day can create a lifetime of impact.
