YOUR FUNDS THEIR FUTURE

 

Your Gift To The 2019 Your Funds Their Future Campaign Goes Far At West Liberty University And Changes  Students’ Lives.

 

WITH an increasing number of student opportunities in undergraduate majors, graduate degrees, and athletics — plus a recent growth in enrollment, we want to continue our success! A strong enrollment helps in fulfilling our Mission to provide an OPPORTUNITY for a high quality education and also improves the University’s FINANCIAL HEALTH by generating tuition dollars, which make up a majority of the operating budget.

  • FUNDING SCHOLARSHIPS: The first $100,000 goes toward the WLU Foundation Scholarship Program, providing tuition dollars.
  • NEED REQUEST PROGRAM: Additional funding goes toward the WLU Foundation Need Request Program which funded 21 projects worth $145,000 during fiscal year ‘18. Recent initiatives include: Cheer nationals, Arnett Hall renovations, faculty and student travel abroad, locker room renovation, WLU Small Business Center, technology upgrade and more.
