#CougsGive March 28

The Washington State University experience is special. Cougs are connected to their communities and work to improve life for the people around them. Cougs are leaders, actively working to solve the most pressing problems. Cougs are part of a family that spans many generations and geographical boundaries, and that family helps its members.

On March 28, 2017, WSU’s 127th birthday, we celebrate this tradition with #CougsGive, a celebration of our history and a commitment to building our future.

Whether you’re passionate about scholarships, student support services, critical research, artistic expression, or a transformational educational experience—or all of the above—you can make a direct impact on WSU’s future with a gift on March 28.

Join us on March 28 as we show that Cougs Care, Cougs Lead, #CougsGive.
