Giving Opportunities

Giving Opportunities

Those of us who have found success in life know the price—hard work, dedication, and support from others along the way.

Why Give?

Giving to the Mid-State Foundation is one way you can say thank you and see that your hard-earned resources provide the critical help others may need to achieve success and independence.

The Need Is Great

Mid-State transforms lives, creating "career-ready" employees who make an immediate impact in the community. But the students in our district start out with greater financial hurdles than almost any others in the state. The success of our mission comes down to generous gifts from people like you—who help keep our students enrolled and working toward a brighter future for themselves and our shared communities.

65% of mid-state graduates are employed within our district. Nearly 80% of Mid-State Students receive some form of financial assistance

Mid-State by the numbers
  • Resident population of 171,000
  • 8,000 students served each year
  • Central Wisconsin district second highest in the state for percentage of economically disadvantaged students

Your Gift Gives Back

Every gift, whatever the size, is needed and appreciated. In turn, our students and alumni strengthen our region's economy and outlook by giving back their skills and resources. Of course our donors give for the sheer joy of it, too.

Ways to Give

The Mid-State Foundation offers a variety of gift-giving options. We would be happy to assist in implementing any gift, though we do recommend that you consult with an attorney or accountant for the legal and tax implications of any gift you make.

Cash gifts

Fully deductible to the extent allowed by federal law.

Corporate matches of individual gifts

Leverages and maximizes the impact of your original gift.

Endowing a fund

Provides annual support for a scholarship or project.

Sponsor a Scholar program

Sponsor a Scholar is a "win-win" partnership opportunity that matches motivated students interested in hands-on careers with businesses willing to invest in their education and employ them immediately after graduation. 

Other options

Gifts by will or living trust, planned and deferred gifts, and gifts of stocks and securities are all great ways to make large gifts and gifts that extend into the future. 

Shout-out to Donors

It's so important to share the story of giving that keeps our students on track to graduation. Displays at our Marshfield, Stevens Point, and Wisconsin Rapids campuses, publicly express gratitude to our contributors and recognize their generosity.
