Friends of WSU

In 1890, Washington State University welcomed its first students and conferred its first seven diplomas in 1897.

Now, 125 years later, and with the help of dedicated friends of the University like you, WSU still strives to make a world-class education accessible and to better the lives of Washington residents through outreach programs that make a difference in every county. Each year, WSU receives gifts from tens of thousands of individuals and organizations who support everything from scholarships and fellowships to research funding for WSU’s nationally recognized faculty researchers. We invite you to browse our giving page to learn about the various funds you can support. Here you can also establish a recurring gift to ensure your support makes a difference year-round.
