Make A Difference – Sponsor or Scholarship a Student

Western strongly believes that education is the key to building a more economically sound community. Many of our local youth are unable to participate in Western's Youth Programs due to financial constraints and each year we receive a number of requests for financial assistance from deserving students. As a state agency, Western can only offer sponsorships or scholarships through private donations. Deserving students need your help!

The Western Foundation manages the WWU Youth Programs Scholarship fund. There is a scholarship application process and standards in place to assure funds are awarded fairly and appropriately. You can make a donation, which is tax deductible, in any amount.

Your generosity will help build the future of our community. Please consider making a secure, tax deductible, online donation today. For questions, please contact

Please consider giving the gift of education to a deserving student.
