Athletics

 

Giving Day contributions of every size make a major difference! Support this featured project today or give to another area that helps student-athletes.

 

 

The Athletics "W" Club

YOUR donation to the W Club (general athletics) supports our 400+ student athletes and helps to ensure they receive the best care and support possible towards their education and athletics endeavors.

 

Boost your favorite program — and its student-athletes — with a gift to the Athletics "W" Club. Your Giving Day contribution is instrumental in WSU Athletics' mission to create well-rounded student-athletes who represent the excellence of the university. With over 400 student-athletes, the cost of managing a successful athletic program requires regular, private support. The Athletics "W" Club creates that opportunity as an annual giving club that directs a tax-deductible gift to assist your favorite program and the overall initiatives of the athletic department. Your contribution is instrumental to maintain that continued level of excellence and support for today's student-athletes.
