Announcements

Please read this important memo: Investment Transition to SWIB and Fund Changes pdf

Quarterly earnings allocations and market value updates for the Intermediate and Long Term Funds have been posted to SFS/WISDM as of 3/31/2018.

In addition, all holdings in the Intermediate Term Fund have been liquidated as of 3/31/2018 and the proceeds moved to the Income Cash Fund (as further discussed in the ‘Transition to SWIB’ memo).

The Trust Funds Office is responsible for the administrative oversight of endowment and other investable funds entrusted to the Board of Regents of the UW System.  These funds currently consist primarily of monies that have been gifted directly to a UW institution, rather than to one of the separate, supporting foundations.  The Office reports to and supports the Business and Finance Committee of the Board of Regents, which serves as the ultimate fiduciary and trustee of these investable funds.

Regarding administration, the Trust Funds Office works externally with donors and other related parties, and internally with the benefiting campuses and colleges, to facilitate the receipt and proper use (compliant with donor terms and conditions) of all gifts and bequests.  Operationally, the Office is responsible for the deposit of funds, fund- and account-level transaction processing, maintenance of the donor account-level recordkeeping system and its reconciliation and integration with other accounting systems.
