CWU Donors

Every gift empowers CWU to continue to provide an outstanding academic experience. Thanks to the support of alumni, friends, faculty, parents, foundations, and corporations, CWU is able to recruit and retain terrific faculty, fund scholarships for our students, and take advantage of our surroundings to create enriching educational experiences and opportunities. We invite you to create a new tradition of annual giving by joining one of these circles, which recognize individuals who have taken a leadership role in ensuring the strength of CWU.

Giving Levels

President's Associates Level Giving Club

The President's Giving Club honors alumni and friends who demonstrate their commitment to CWU's mission by contributing $1,000 or more annually to any program, scholarship, or fund. These leadership gifts from our most loyal donors and strongest community allies demonstrate philanthropy in action. These gifts are the mainstay of the university's operating budget and allow CWU to continue pioneering bold, new ideas that shape how our students become leaders in the global community. President Associates Level Giving Club members are invited to special university events throughout the year, including an annual reception with CWU President James L. Gaudino, and have the opportunity to meet with faculty and students, to see first-hand the impacts of their generous annual support. They also receive special recognition in the annual report.

GOLD Leadership Giving Circle

The Graduates of the Last Decade Giving Circle honors those who partner with the university in creating the next generation of leaders. Members are alumni from the ten most recent classes who demonstrate their commitment to CWU's mission and pay it forward for current students with their annual contributions in increasing amounts of $100 per year since graduation. For further description, please feel free to refer to our GOLD Leadership Giving Circle Information Sheet.
