Winona State University Foundation 50th Anniversary Gala

2013 Society Inductees

Medallion Society

Winona State University Foundation established the Medallion Society in 2012 - a new tribute to honor our generous benefactors who make the university's mission possible.  The President's Medallion itself carries the spirt of philanthropy.  The gold medallion was a gift from WSU students in 1968 in honor of President DuFresne's inauguration.  The gems in the medallion were donated by members of the Winona community.  It was said that the medallion represented the people's faith in education, a responsibility for university's mission and a guardianship of behalf of the state of Minnesota and future generations. 

1858 Founder's Society

Winona State University Foundation's 1858 Founder's Society pays tribute to those who have chosen to support generations of learners though planned gifts and bequests.  Our sincere gratitude to these benefactors whose philanthropy will make a difference in the lives of future students at WSU.
