About Us

Greetings from the Office of University Advancement!

The Office of University Advancement incorporates the University of Wisconsin-River Falls Foundation and UW-River Falls Alumni Association. These distinct entities, served by the same staff, connect with and engage the alumni and friends of the university on a variety of levels in order to keep them informed about and engaged in UW-River Falls. 

The University of Wisconsin-River Falls Foundation is a private non-profit organization that has a rich history encompassing more than 60 years of connecting alumni as well as providing much needed funding for the UW-River Falls. The Foundation serves as the fundraising entity for the university responsible for regularly soliciting and stewarding UWRF alumni and friends.

The UW-River Falls Alumni Association actively builds and strengthens relationships with alumni and friends of UW-River Falls. The Alumni Association serves to keep the interested parties informed about the institution and in contact with one another by providing a wide variety of alumni events and mentoring opportunities.

UW-River Falls continues to be successful because of the generous support and active involvement of alumni and friends of the university. Private support helps enhance the educational experience offered at UW-River Falls by providing funding for research activities, scholarships, faculty and staff development and more.

We look forward to helping you engage in UW-River Falls in ways that have the most meaning for you and the greatest impact on our university. Please explore our website further. I encourage you to contact a member of our University Advancement Team for further assistance and information.
