Online Giving

Thank you for considering a gift to Western.

As we continue strongly forward to meet the challenges of today and seize the opportunities of tomorrow, we know we can count on you to make a difference in our success. Private gifts like yours provide Western’s margin of excellence. Today, more than ever, Western alumni and friends are being asked to invest in making a difference in the lives of our students, and helping to strengthen Western, enhance its reputation and elevate its visibility on a national scale. And the great news is you’re doing it in measures that lead our peers by a wide margin. Thank you!

You may make your donation online with your Visa, MasterCard or Discover. You will receive a gift receipt in the mail for tax purposes, as well as, an automated email receipt. The annual giving program's top two priorities are the Western Fund and the University Center. The Western Fund provides unrestricted, university-wide support to enable the Western State Foundation to enhance the educational environment at the university for the benefit of its students, faculty and community. The new $28 million University Center opened in January, 2010. The 75,409 sq. ft. building includes a movie theater, residential and retail dining, bookstore, wilderness pursuits, ballroom, lounges, meeting facilities and offices. We encourage you to come back to campus and enjoy the University Center. Again, thank you for your generosity!
