Philanthropic Leadership for WCU
When you choose to make gifts that demonstrate outstanding dedication to the future of West Chester University, you join the ranks of philanthropic leaders who propel student success — and serve as an example to every member of our shared community.
We recognize that commitment with membership in the President’s Circle giving society — a collection of extraordinary donors and community partners who have driven WCU forward with renewed optimism in the form of generous annual, cumulative, or consecutive gifts.
You can join them as a beacon of philanthropy — at our yearly President’s Circle Dinner and every day through Foundation-led recognition efforts. Together, the President’s Circle encourages even greater support for WCU from donors aspiring to create lasting impact on student success.
