The Fund for WCU

Annual gifts provide the resources needed to fund scholarships, academic programming, athletic scholarships, and fine and performing arts to name a few through the support of our annual donors.

Each year, thousands of alumni, parents, faculty, staff and friends of WCU make contributions to the areas of Western Carolina University that are important to them. By investing in what you love most at WCU, you play a critical role in sustaining a great tradition of providing students with access to life-changing college experiences.

You can direct your gift to a variety of areas. Simply indicate how the gift should be designated when you make your contribution. Gifts designated to the Fund for WCU - Greatest Needs provide ultimate flexibility for the money to be used to support the most urgent and impactful needs at WCU. In addition, the Fund for WCU - Greatest Needs helps provide more than 200 merit-based scholarships each year.

Investing in WCU's Annual Giving program, the Fund for WCU, allows you to make a difference today. Unlike endowed gifts, annual gifts are used in the current operating year, allowing Western Carolina to invest in opportunities as they arise.

Please show your commitment to Western Carolina and the students that call her home by making your annual gift today. Help WCU as it continues to make the difference in the lives of thousands of students every day.
