In addition to ongoing fundraising priorities for academic colleges and campus units, the WSU Foundation and Alumni Engagement (WSUFAE) is making progress on fundraising goals for the year and continues to work toward advancing the university’s top priorities.
Shocker Success Center
Fundraising for the Shocker Success Center has reached $5 million, and it will remain a priority for the remainder of the fiscal year. As the project bids are within the original estimate, additional funds may be directed toward finishing the basement and creating a technology and program enhancement fund.
Need-based aid and athletics
Supporting need-based scholarships will remain a fundraising priority as well, with a goal of $10 million to help ease financial burdens for students. Additionally, the WSUFAE is partnering with the athletics department to raise funds for a comprehensive softball team operations center and enhancements for the Charles Koch Arena weight room.
