Philanthropy at Washington State

Cougar Pride Runs Deep

Philanthropy at Washington State (PAWS) offers leadership and guidance for students about the role philanthropy plays in the WSU experience.

Through special events, education, and student giving initiatives, PAWS works to grow the culture of philanthropy and the spirit of giving back within the Cougar family. Together, we work to create an even better WSU for future generations of Cougs.
