I don't see the fund I'd like to give to, can I still donate?

Is my gift tax deductible?

The UW-Eau Claire Foundation is a 501c3 nonprofit organization. Gifts made to the UW-Eau Claire Foundation are tax deductible to the fullest extent of the law. Recent legislation allows for changes to charitable giving in 2021. This includes an up to $300 cash gift deduction for eligible individuals and and up to $600 cash gift deduction for eligible joint filers. Please consult your tax advisor.

How do I set up a monthly/ongoing donation?

Ongoing donations are a great way to support UW-Eau Claire without having to think too much about it! Unfortunately, this Giving Tuesday website cannot process a recurring gift. You can still set up a recurring gift, just visit https://connect.uwec.edu/donate

I qualified for one of the matching challenges, which fund will my gift go to?

Unless the matching challenge was set up for a specific fund, the matching dollars that you earned by making a gift will go to the fund(s) that you chose to support!
