Annual Campaign

EVERY GIFT COUNTS

 

Your Gift To The 2018 Every Gift Counts Campaign Carries That Momentum Forward!

 

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 20 projects worth $100,000 plus during fiscal year ‘17. Recent initiatives include: WLU Steel Band, medical cadaver table, faculty and student travel abroad, Wrestling Office renovation, academic Writing Center, matching dollars for grant acquisition and more.
