The WCU Foundation recognizes donors who are driving West Chester University forward with optimism in the form of generous annual, cumulative, consecutive, or planned gifts. When you choose to make a gift to West Chester University through the Foundation, you may be eligible to join one or more of our giving societies. By doing so, you demonstrate a dedication to the future of the University and are joining the ranks of philanthropic leaders who propel student success and serve as an example to every member of our community.

Giving<br />Societies

Create lasting impact with your philanthropic gift.

In the fall of 2024, the WCU Foundation introduced updated Giving Societies to create an increased sense of pride and a fresh way for all alumni and friends to be engaged with WCU. As always, we thank you for your continued support and partnership in our mission to drive student success and help WCU students achieve more.
