Make A Gift to the CougParents Fund

CougParents Fund

The fund retains donor investments for impactful funding to organizations providing WSU students opportunities to immerse themselves into the WSU community.  It supports programs and experiences which may pertain to what the students study in the classroom, or they may help enrich students through volunteerism, social interactions, or educational opportunities outside the classroom.  Speakers, events, theatre, music, even computers to check out for those students who can’t afford their own – all of these activities and programs help enhance the student experience at WSU.  Join hundreds of Cougar parents by making a secure online gift today to the CougParents Fund, you can positively impact your student’s educational experience and that of the entire student body.
