President's Circle

The President's Circle is comprised of a dedicated group of alumni, parents, friends, faculty, and staff who ensure that West Chester University remains an exceptional institution of higher learning. These supporters demonstrate philanthropic leadership by helping WCU to fulfill students' needs now, and by preparing a strong foundation for the University's future.

The President's Circle recognizes lifetime, consecutive, and annual leadership giving to restricted funds and to unrestricted funds, such as the Purple & Gold Fund. These leadership gifts support scholarships and endowments, physical equipment, capital improvement and construction, and program enhancements.

President's Circle Dinner

President's Circle members contributing $1,000 or more in the past fiscal year (July 1 to June 30) are invited to attend the President's Circle Dinner, an event held each fall. This event also welcomes and recognizes new members of each of our giving societies: Heritage Society, Carillon Society, and President's Circle Annual Honor Roll.
