#CougsGive might be over, but you can still make your gift here.
#CougsGive

THANK YOU to everyone who gave, shared, supported, volunteered, and helped to make #CougsGive a success!

CougsGive Heart Logo

Every spring, the Cougar family comes together to recognize generosity, celebrate our successes, and give to the areas that mean the most to us.

Generous donors are the foundation of student success, and on April 13, 2022, the Cougar family will come together and give to the scholarships, programs, and experiences that set WSU apart. Browse the active campaigns, see the stories of donor impact across the WSU system, add your own voice to the campaign as a Cougar Ambassador, and create your own impact at WSU with a gift on April 13!

Since starting in 2015, WSU's annual day of giving has grown into an exciting yearly celebration of generosity. WSU alumni, friends, students, parents, faculty, staff, and partners have created significant impact during #CougsGive with thousands of social media posts and shares, more than 4,000 gifts, and nearly $2 million of donated funds in support of WSU's land-grant mission.
