What's New This Year?

This Giving Joy Day, we’re creating upward mobility for students facing a barrier. Our goal is to raise $500,000.

The Eagle On initiative provides direct financial support for these hard-working students and empowers them to complete their degrees. By making a gift, you can be the boost that gets students over obstacles and on to a life of success and impact.

In any way that you choose to give joy on April 3, please use #givingjoyday to share the spirit of the day on social media.

The Impact of Gifts

“The scholarships I received made coming to EWU possible, as without them I probably would not be finishing up my last year right now. More than anything, these scholarships have significantly reduced the financial strain on my family and I. I have been blessed by the support of scholarship donors and my hope is that more students can continue to accomplish their academic goals here with scholarship help.”
