Make A Difference – Support 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 registration fee waivers through private donations. Deserving students need your help!
The Western Foundation manages the WWU Youth Programs fund. There is a registration fee waiver application process to assure funds are awarded fairly and appropriately. You can make a donation, which is tax deductible, in any amount.
Please consider giving the gift of education to a deserving student.
