Giving Tuesday


Thank you to all who donated!

With Gratitude

Thank You EWU Supporters Who Gave Over $80K on GivingTuesday!

Generous donors like you helped us provide more scholarships for deserving EWU students. Donors contributed 220 gifts totalling $83,379 on GivingTuesday! Totals like that ensure our students stay Eagle Strong during these difficult times.

If you missed out, there is still time to add to these important scholarship endowments.

 

Scholarship Funds in Need

These scholarship endowment funds are within $5,000 of reaching endowment.
That means that a gift to one of these scholarships is likely to have an impact on deserving EWU students right away.


Chicana/o/x Studies Endowment

Thanks to generous donors on GivingTuesday, this fund reached endowment and will soon start awarding scholarships to deserving students! The scholarship fund was established by Chicana/o/x Studies faculty and alumni who say the social activities and strong relationships between faculty, staff and students made their experience at EWU unforgettable. Because of your help, scholarships will help provide similar experiences for more incoming students.

ME/MET Alumni Endowment Fund

Because of your help on GivingTuesday, we are closer to endowing this scholarship fund, which promotes excellence for students seeking a degree in mechanical engineering or mechanical engineering technology. With another $3,500 in gifts to this fund, we can provide scholarship help to more talented students who will graduate and become innovators, problem solvers and diverse, talented employees. Help us reach that goal by the end of the year!

Bill Youngs Endowment

Two former students, who are now married and parents of twins, established this fund to honor their favorite history professor. They want to support student projects in the fields of history and environmental studies by helping cover expenses related to research publishing and tuition. Honored by their gesture, Bill Youngs made a gift to finish up the endowment! He invites donors to help even more students by matching his $5,000 gift.

Empowering Women Upward

On GivingTuesday, an anonymous donor, in memory of a good friend, made a generous gift of $10,000 to this fund! The donor is encouraging others to match the gift to help even more women 35+ who never give up on their dreams. Now that Empowering Women Upward is endowed, your gift will do just that for generations to come.

Anna K. Dvorak Memorial Fund

An assistant professor of geography and geographic information systems, Anna Dvorak tragically died in a climbing accident in 2015. This scholarship fund will not only honor the lasting impact she made on the curriculum and her students, it will reward students who feel passionately about exploring the world for social and environmental justice. The fund is only about $4,000 from reaching endowment. It’s not too late to give a gift and take advantage of a $4,000 match gift that will make your donation go twice as far!
