WHAT IS IT?
A lot has changed in the past year, but the resiliency and strength of the Waynesburg community remains firm. On Thursday, Nov. 12, 2020, we need WU to come together! Waynesburg University alumni, friends, students, parents, faculty and staff are being called on to support the Fund for Waynesburg during the University’s fifth annual Day of Giving fundraising event.
WHY IS IT IMPORTANT?
As the entire world faces unprecedented times, we graciously ask for your support. We are calling on the entire Waynesburg community to make a gift to the Fund for Waynesburg to offset COVID expenses and keep Waynesburg well. Your generous support will benefit our students in many ways, including:
- Continued on-campus living
- In-person classes
- Distance learning through upgraded online learning modules
- Return of spring athletics
- Maintaining a safe, healthy campus
