#CougsGive might be over, but you can still make an impact by clicking here.
Cougs Help Cougs

#CougsGive is a one-day fundraising event dedicated to expanding, sharing, and celebrating the impact of donor support at Washington State University. Generous donors are the foundation of student success, and on April 14, 2021, the Cougar family will come together and give to the scholarships, programs, and experiences that set WSU apart.

Cougs Help Cougs - and this has never been more apparent than the past 12 months. #CougsGive uses the power of philanthropy to empower WSU students, maintain WSU's land-grant mission, and support Washington's communities.

Please mark your calendar for April 14, 2021, sign up to be a Cougar Ambassador, and help us share the message of generosity during #CougsGive!
