Consider a Major Gift

There are a variety of ways you can make a gift to Western Kentucky University through the WKU Foundation or another University-related foundation. Such gifts make a significant impact upon the University’s goals of teaching, research and public service while allowing you the personal satisfaction of helping WKU become a leading American university with international reach.

Continuing to enhance our margin of excellence depends on increasing commitments from individuals in the private sector who share the University’s vision for the future. The Commonwealth of Kentucky can only guarantee that WKU provides a basic level of education, while private support from loyal alumni and friends ensures the best faculty, the brightest students and the most creative research projects.

It is important that you find the method, which meet your needs while accomplishing your wishes. We hope this site will be helpful in structuring the most appropriate gift for your individual situation.
