Endowed funds allow amazing things to happen at The Weidner, from generous program and community support, to the sparkling Chihuly glass sculpture at The Weidner’s lobby.

The Chihuly Chandelier

Since the University was established in 1965, generous donors have created more than 260 endowed funds. Many of these funds are directed by donors for specific purposes, from scholarships for first-generation college students and of course maintenance, expansions, and programming at The Weidner. The Weidner together with the UW-Green Bay Foundation carefully stewards each of these promises. Endowed funds continue to provide support year after year. This is crucial for an institution intended to serve generations of theater goers.

how it works

Choose to endow your gift of $50,000 or more. Ask us about options for making gifts over time that add up to the minimum amount.

The fund can grow over time to generate an increasing stream of funding devoted to your interest areas. Earnings are distributed in the form of scholarships to students or requested by faculty, deans, and directors who oversee program expenses. Your gift – and all future income from your gift – is a permanent source of funding that supports The Weidner and the arts forever.
