WWU Give Day 2018
Celebrating the Power of Education

We did it! Thank you for coming together for Western's third annual 24-hour online giving event dedicated to powering student success!

We exceeded our goal of $600,000 in gifts and matching funds* and set a new record for the number of donors to Western in one day. 

 

Your gifts will help students harness their passion and transform that energy into a successful future that benefits us all.

 

 

Thank you again for your generosity and support on #WWUGiveDay.

 

*The Challenge Pool match percent is 30% this year! All matching funds have been applied on this site so the totals you see reflect gifts and matching funds.
