Collection Summary: The River Falls State Teachers College Foundation was incorporated in March 1948. A non-profit organization, the Foundation was formed for the purpose of the solicitation of gifts of money or property to the College to be used for the benefit of the school, basically in the form of scholarships to assist deserving students and a physical plant development fund. Foundation contributions to the school, aside from scholarships, include purchasing furnishings for Hagestad Student Center (1959), floating a loan for the expansion of the college farm, the purchase of the bronze Falcon adorning the Karges Physical Education building, and the purchase of the Kleinpell Carillon currently located in North Hall.

In March 1952, the Foundation launched a new alumni publication, Falcon Features, still in publication.

Included in this series are records of contributions, lists of scholarship recipients, financial records, minutes of the Foundation Board of Directors, business correspondence, constitution and bylaws, articles of incorporation of the Foundation, and issues of Falcon Features.

See UWRF Series 141 (One of Five-Thousand Campaign) for related materials.
