UWM Ignite Fund

The UWM Ignite Fund has a broad purpose of providing funds for UWM's greatest needs, while also leveraging additional support for important initiatives. The Ignite Fund is used to create a "spark" for start-up funding, donor matches or initiatives that create interest and fundraising momentum. Like all UWM Foundation assets, the Ignite Fund exists to support our collective pursuit to improve lives, build futures and enhance the community of the university we love, UW-Milwaukee.
