Built on trust and transparency, stewardship is the careful and responsible management of something entrusted to one’s care, and at the university and UW Foundation, we are stewarding your private giving to the best of our ability.

The UW Foundation Appreciates Donors

Donors can count on timely acknowledgment, accurate reporting, communication of impact, and appropriate recognition of their important contributions as members of the UW team. We do our level best to make sure you, our donors, get the information you need and feel appreciated for the important contributions you are making to the University of Wyoming.


UW Foundation Stewardship Award – At the Heart of Our Success    

Donor support is at the heart of every University of Wyoming success story. Connecting supporters to the areas, programs, and people they care about is fundamental to student success and faculty excellence. The relationships between faculty and the folks who believe in the mission of their programs are central to ensuring that every act of generosity has the greatest impact possible. 

The UW Foundation Stewardship Award recognizes the pivotal role faculty members play in donor philanthropy and celebrates the special connections made between educators and supporters. 

In 2023, two University of Wyoming faculty members earned the prestigious UW Foundation Stewardship Award. They are Cindy Price Schultz, head of the Department of Communication and Journalism, and John Kaszuba, the John and Jane Wold Centennial Chair in Energy. 

“Cindy and John exemplify the value and importance of faculty engagement with the stewardship of gifts that support UW people and programs,” says UW Provost and Executive Vice President Kevin Carman. “They help donors appreciate the value and impact of their philanthropy and, in doing so, encourage even greater support.” 

Price Schultz was recognized for her work with the Bobby Model Photojournalism Professorship, the Muhlberg Study Abroad Award, the Larsh Bristol Photojournalism Fellowship, the department’s newsletter, and attracting prominent guest lecturers. 

Kaszuba was named the John and Jane Wold Centennial Chair in Energy in 2020. His stewardship efforts included donor visits, building a wall display that pays tribute to John and Jane Wold, and holding a joint symposium with the School of Energy Resources and the Wold Foundation that focused on Wyoming’s energy future.
