On Western Washington University's first-ever Western Give Day, 675 donors came together to raise $219,000 for WWU departments, programs and scholarships. Generous supporters also gave $125,000 in matching funds.

#WesternGiveDay brought more donations to WWU in one day than ever before. The previous record was 447 in 2005. The Western Foundation and WWU Alumni Association offer their thanks to the entire campus community for contributing to this successful event by spreading the word and making donations.

All June 1 gifts have been time-stamped, and Foundation staff members will spend the next 48 hours applying matching dollars to gifts and tallying departmental results.
