For as little as $25,000, an endowed fund may be established to support a college, program, or initiative of your choosing. Learn more about creating an endowment.
Many employers will match their employees' donations to Washington State University. Some employers will even match the gifts of retired employees, spouses, parents, and even contributions from their board of directors. All matched funds will be designated to the area to which you originally contributed your gift.
