Funds & Scholarships

A sound endowment is the financial bedrock upon which CWU pursues its mission. The ability to sustain operations and make targeted investments in our students hinges on the generous gifts of our donors.

In addition to providing a valued and permanent stream of income for the various departments throughout the college endowment funds are a meaningful way to honor or memorialize family members, friends, or mentors.
