Foundation & Development

The Annual Fund: Western YOUR way

Regardless if you are an alumna/us, student, parent, or friend, you are a stakeholder in Western’s future. That future is quite literally determined by donors who unite in their generosity each year to create educational opportunity with their collective support.

The Annual Fund provides you the opportunity to align your personal values with gifts to any area of the Macomb or Quad City campus you choose. From funding scholarship programs to supporting colleges and departments across both campuses, your gifts have a direct impact on the lives of Western students in the area that is most important to you.

Some of our Giving Opportunities include: The President's Scholarship Fund, Western Couples, College of Business & Technology, College of Fine Arts & Communication, Phonathon, College of Education and Human Services, WIU Parent and Family Association, Bachelor of Arts in General Studies, College of Arts & Sciences, Western Illinois Now, WIU Black Alumni Scholarship, Library Atrium Society, Center for International Studies, Student Services and Centennial Honors College.
