This is a milestone year for USM: fifty years ago, in the fall of 1964, University School of Milwaukee opened its doors with the merger of three highly respected independent schools in Milwaukee: Milwaukee Country Day School, Milwaukee Downer Seminary, and Milwaukee University School. Five decades after the historic merger, we celebrate 50 Years of USM and the School’s successes as the finest independent school in the Milwaukee area, and the entire state of Wisconsin, while also being considered one of the top college preparatory schools in the country. Our community’s support of the School remains essential, both during this milestone year and while planning for USM’s exciting future. Excellence does not happen by accident: it requires a steady infusion of time, talent, and financial resources.
USM's Advancement team has developed comprehensive fund-raising programs that enable every member of our community to make a difference through their financial support. The Annual Giving Program and gifts to the Endowment provide resources to offer outstanding educational opportunities, support faculty, and help families afford a USM education.
The Advancement team is pleased to work with you to develop a gift plan, including planned giving opportunities, that fits your particular needs and interests.
