About the Foundation

WSU Foundation Trustees

Established with the creation of the Washington State University Foundation in 1979, the Trustees serve as the Foundation’s volunteer membership. By volunteering their time to serve on Foundation committees and to build relationships with prospective donors, the members of the Trustees serve a critical fund-raising role in support of the Foundation and the University.

The Board of Directors of the WSU Foundation Trustees serves as the governing board for the WSU Foundation. The Board of Directors has fiduciary responsibility for the general business and affairs of the WSU Foundation, including oversight of the Foundation’s property, assets, and policies of the WSU Foundation.

The WSU Foundation welcomes nominations for new volunteers, and evaluates them annually. Typically, nominees are evaluated by the Foundation’s Nominating Committee in the spring, recruited over the summer, and attend their first meeting in the fall. Know someone who might be interested? Nominate them here. If you have any questions, please reach out to the Board Relations Team at wsuf.board@wsu.edu.
