WWU Give Day
WWU Give Day

Wow! On Thursday, May 28 you really showed Western students how much we care about them! Our hearts are filled with gratitude and smiles knowing how supportive you've been.

 

Our 5th Annual WWU Give Day has been more important than ever for two reasons: we are passionate about providing basic needs for our students who are suffering economically right now, and we need to show compassion and encourage Western students during this uncertain time.

 

  • Your gift to WWU’s Student Emergency Fund, Scholarships or your favorite department, scholarship, program or team is helping us meet the critical needs of students facing financial hardship.

 

  • Keep the caring going! Even though Give Day is over, you can still make a gift here or show you care by posting words of encouragement to our 2020 grads using #WWUGRAD. Find us @WWUAlumni on Facebook and Instagram.

We are busy tallying results and will announce our Give Day Challenge Pool match percent soon.

Thank you to our generous WWU Give Day Challenge Pool Sponsors!
