Thank you very much to everyone who shared and supported WWU Give Day 2023!
It was the highest level of participation ever and we are still counting late donations coming in the mail. Together we truly made a difference in Western students' lives!
2023 WWU Give Day Priority
This year, Western's top fundraising priority is Kaiser Borsari Hall — a building that exemplifies Western's commitment to graduating more future leaders in advanced technology engineering and computer science. Kaiser Borsari Hall will allow us to welcome more students who embody Western’s forward-thinking commitment to interdisciplinary teaching and learning — students like Tyanin Opdahl (that’s her up at the top of the page)!
Tyanin had very little coding experience when she transferred to Western a year and a half ago, but she knew she wanted to pursue a high-tech career, so she declared computer science her major. She’s also minoring in creative writing, and is now putting both fields of study to use in a faculty-led research project to root out biased language in artificial intelligence and machine learning courses. Kaiser Borsari Hall was designed with students like Tyanin in mind — students who are eager to collaborate across disciplines to solve the great problems of our time.
We’re excited that WWU Give Day is happening right as we celebrate the groundbreaking of this game-changing, carbon-neutral addition to our campus. It will have active-learning classrooms, teaching and research labs and spaces designed to support people with diverse abilities and learning styles. It will open more space to take interdisciplinary approaches to collaborative problem-solving around climate change, cybersecurity, artificial intelligence and more.
Your gift is tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law according to section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. Our tax identification number is 91-6073519.
Thank you to everyone who made a gift as part of WWU Give day 2023 for being a part of the proud WWU Give Day tradition!
It is incredible to see the whole Western community come together in one day to support literally hundreds of amazing things happening at Western all at once!
Together we helped raise over $785,000 for scholarship, programs, student groups, athletics, with more with donations still coming in the mail and through our limited time late Give Day donation portal. Once all those gifts are in, we can announce and apply all the matching and challenge funds, including the general match percentage that will be added to every gift that didn't receive a special match.
There are a lot of people involved in WWU Give Day, from faculty and staff to students and alumni, and on behalf of all of us, thank you for being a part of the tradition to come together to support Western students, it means more than you know!
Thank you again and Go Vikings!
