Day of Giving Testimonials
"I am incredibly thankful to the donors that gave to the Biblical & Ministry Studies program at Waynesburg University. It has impacted our community of learners with opportunities for 'out of the classroom' learning trips, meals, and conferences."
Josh Sumpter, Instructor of Biblical & Ministry Studies and Assistant Chaplain
"[Past] Day of Giving funds we received were used to help fund the Fine Arts Academy. It was used as seed money to help us get this program off of the ground. We are now offering Art and Music classes to the community."
