For alumni, friends and fans

The Foundation for Western Washington University & Alumni is a new streamlined organization created to fulfill a unified mission: engaging our alumni and friends on a deeper, more meaningful level. The Foundation will also more closely align with the University’s mission and strategic goals, and focus the organization’s energy on ensuring the financial health of Western, while continuing to engage with alumni and the entire Western community.
