Founder’s Day of Giving Brings Donations to Colleges and University Programs – The Sunflower
Founder’s Day of Giving invited donors, faculty, staff, students, and the community to celebrate Wichita State’s history and students.
The 24-hour event was aimed at raising funds for the university.
The WSU Foundation Board of Directors will match all donations under $25,000 “dollar to dollar”.
Others across the university have championed over 80 different funds to help raise awareness and funds for the event.
“We’re thrilled with the support we’ve seen so far for Founders Giving Day,” communications director Emily Mullins said via email. “The generosity of our donors in providing matching and challenge gifts is inspiring support for colleges and programs across the university.
Donors can donate to any university college, department or program listed on the Founders’ Day of Giving page.
The money raised for each fund is then used at the discretion of those colleges or programs to support the work and education they do to provide an exceptional Shocker experience.
“Founders Giving Day is our day to bring together all of Shocker Nation – students, parents, faculty, staff, alumni and donors – to support our students and the university as a whole,” Mullins said.
