Donor generosity supports 100+ programs on Founders’ Day of Giving

Wichita State’s first annual Founders’ Day of Giving saw more than 600 people come together to support what they love at WSU, bringing together our campus, community and all of Shocker Nation.

More than $186,000 was given to support 106 different programs across campus, from athletic teams to student support offices. Several donors supported programs through match and challenge gifts, making every dollar go further and encouraging many first-time donors to give, and with mailed checks still coming in, the total number is expected to go up.

Thank you to the 120 ambassadors across campus who helped spread the word, and to all who participated to help invest in the future of Wichita State.
