Every Gift, Every Student, One University
Whether a gift is large or modest, to the Loyalty Fund or for another purpose, your private support supplements the university budget and touches every student on WCU’s campus.
Satisfying and Meaningful
It is the responsibility of WCU’s Office of Development and Alumni Affairs to know the university’s needs, learn about your interests, recognize when your interests and the needs of the university overlap, and begin a conversation about giving that leads to a result that is as satisfying for you as it is meaningful for Western Carolina. We are happy to talk with you further about giving to Western Carolina. Please contact our office toll free at 800-492-8496 or send an e-mail.
