Realizing the Vision

The Western Foundation works quietly in the background, making the highest aspirations of Western and its students possible through scholarships, grants, and distance education. Our mission is to deliver opportunities for a quality education—to open doors.

We are strategic and diligent, continually developing staff, programs, and assets to prepare students for a world that is changing quickly. We believe in the potential of western Wisconsin communities and the people who live here.

The power of community

The foundation’s impact is magnified with each benefactor who joins us in our mission. Be part of this important community.
