What if...?

Many of our greatest successes, accomplishments, and breakthroughs originated from one simple question:

 “What if we could create the crispiest, tastiest, most desirable new apple?”
(Have you tried a Cosmic Crisp apple yet?)

“What if I could be the first in my family to attend college?”
(WSU has been recognized as a First-Gen Forward Institution for its dedication to first-gen students.)

“What if my gift makes the difference in a student’s choice to attend WSU?”
(Cost of attendance is a key determining factor for students deciding on college. Your gifts to scholarship funds can directly affect a student’s ability to attend WSU!)

“What if I could make a gift that creates generational impact for future Cougs?”
(Generous donors have established more than 2,700 named endowments to support WSU in perpetuity! Contact us if you are interested in creating your own legacy.)

On April 12, 2023, please join the WSU Cougar Family celebrating our achievements, learning about what’s next in research and growth, honoring our generous donors, and exploring what we can imagine and accomplish when we ask the question, “What if…?”

Please help WSU spread the word by signing up as a #CougsGive Ambassador and sharing your own stories, and then join us in supporting WSU’s future by making a gift on April 12. Go Cougs!
