Pabst gives $25,000 to UWM’s LGBT programs

Joseph Pabst has pledged $25,000 to UWM’s 2011 campaign. Pabst’s donation will support the Milwaukee LGBT Film/Video Festival, the LGBT Student Resource Center, the UWM Libraries’ LGBT Collection and the LGBT Studies Certificate Program.

“Mr. Pabst’s generous gift to the UWM community will allow us to continue to serve, educate, collaborate and work with various communities on LGBT issues. We thank him for recognizing UWM’s unique position to reach so many people and deeply appreciate his commitment to providing multiple ways to engage in LGBT-related initiatives,” said UWM chancellor Michael R. Lovell.

Gifts will begin to be disseminated and used in 2011.

Pabst is a leading Milwaukee philanthropist and longtime UWM supporter.
