You Can Take WCU Farther

Where do you want to propel West Chester University? We’ve established multiple funds so you can decide how your flexible gift contributes.

Purple & Gold Fund

You can drive the entire mission of WCU and our Foundation with a gift that contributes to lasting change. Donors like you collectively raise more than $200,000 last year — addressing multiple areas of need, together.

Back the Purple & Gold Fund

Fund to Finish

Sometimes the cost of a single course is all that separates a student from his or her degree. By backing the Fund to Finish, you create emergency aid that gets support to students when it matters most.
