The Women’s Giving Circle of the UWM School of Education was founded in 2006 “to bring together women alumni and former and current teachers of all ages who pool their gifts for greater impact and keep themselves current about education through their promotion of the School and its educational research.”

Historically, annual gifts of $1,000 or more have been contributed by each WGC Executive Committee member. We joyfully accept gifts of less than $1,000. Gifts can also be fulfilled with payments throughout the year.  Annually, with input from the Dean, the Executive Committee members collectively decide how to designate their combined gifts to award our faculty-led projects that will impact education in our community and beyond.

Faculty speakers from the School are invited to the Circle’s gatherings to discuss new programs, cutting edge research, and upcoming student initiatives.
