Stories of Giving

I contribute both my time and money to the food bank because of their philosophy that everyone has a right to food. How can people better themselves if they are hungry? Everyone has hard times – loss of a job, unexpected illness or accident, loss of a loved one that disrupts life and sometimes something as simple as having enough food to eat for a few days can bring comfort or relief. People at the food bank thank me for volunteering there, yet I am the one who comes away with a heart full of gratitude every time I’m there.

Western Gives and Grows represents what I love about Western and I’m honored to have this opportunity to make an impact through my gift to this endowment.

CFD makes it easy to manage my giving in one place. I don’t have to worry about my donation lapsing when my credit card expires, or sending a check, or calling to make a pledge. Once the money is regularly taken from my paycheck in small increments, I don’t miss it – and I feel good because I’m supporting causes I believe in.

Give to your favorite charity including WWU

The combined Fund Drive makes it easy to give. Log in to make a new pledge, search for charities, or review and update your current pledges. It’s a great way to manage all of your giving in one place.

You are welcome to give to your favorite program or scholarship at WWU through the Combined Fund Drive too. Like most charities, the CFD charges the WWU Foundation an administrative fee to process your gift. If you would like to give directly to Western, please contact the WWU Foundation.
