In 2012 the University of Wisconsin-River Falls launched it's first comprehensive fundraising campaign called Rising to Distinction. The campaign aims to enable UWRF to climb to new heights of excellence in student financial aid, faculty support, student learning opportunities, and facilities. We aim to help the university pursue the goals of its new strategic plan, Pathway to Distinction.

With an unwavering commitment to teaching, mentoring, and engaging students, UW-River Falls is forging a path that will lead to distinction as a public university. This campaign is our public commitment to boldly support the university's uniqueness.
