How individual donations make lasting impact

The WSU Foundation has an average of 12,000 individual donors each year, and together they show just how quickly small gifts make a large impact.

People support WSU for many reasons, whether it’s their own passion for education or a desire to continue the legacy of the university. Regardless of why they give, their participation led to more than $2.9 million in gifts of $1,000 or less in just one fiscal year. This generosity has a huge impact on the students of WSU.

“I don’t think of what I do as philanthropy,” said one donor. “I just look at things that support the world I want to live in and support those things.”
