FFWS receives $25M gift to support low-income, Wisconsin public school graduates
The Fund for Wisconsin Scholars Inc. (FFWS) recently announced a significant gift of $25 million from founding trustees John P. and Tashia F. Morgridge. The gift is in addition to the $235 million gifted from the fund’s inception in 2007.
This gift will allow the permanent endowment to expand FFWS’ reach to more students across the state, providing financial grants for eligible, lower-income, talented graduates of Wisconsin public schools attending a Wisconsin public postsecondary school. Since 2007, FFWS has distributed over $125 million to 25,000 low-income scholars through grants and stipends reaching scholars in every county in Wisconsin.
