WWU Give Day 2021
WWU Give Day

Welcome to Western's sixth annual Give Day! We're celebrating this year with a promise—a promise to you, our supporters and friends, that each gift you make will help students succeed; a promise to our students that we will ensure their financial needs are met through emergency funds and scholarships; and, a promise to our institution to provide transformational learning opportunities through support of the departments, programs, and clubs that make Western special. 


Join us and celebrate the untold potential of our students as we acknowledge all that they are, and will become. Give Day is a time to celebrate students who are deeply committed to making our world a better place—students who are enhancing the health of the Salish Sea and the environment; students who are writing plays with the power to change the way we think; students who are formulating business ventures that will strengthen our communities—students who are committed to creating a better world. 


Whatever their aspirations, let's make an investment in them this WWU Give Day. There has never been a more important time to support our students' dreams and to ensure a bright and promising future for each and every one of them. 


 Thank you to our Milestone Sponsors!
