Giving Tuesday

Join the global generosity
movement with EWU!

Dec. 1, 2020

Our Goal

Help students by finishing up scholarship endowments.

GivingTuesday is a global generosity movement that unleashes the power of people and organizations, like EWU, to transform their communities and the world. Many EWU students are facing new financial challenges due to the pandemic. Scholarship support is critical at a time like this.

We have identified several scholarship funds that are very close to being endowed. Once our donors help them reach endowment, more students will benefit from scholarship support—and more students will stay Eagle Strong!

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

You can honor the community created in the Chicana/o/x Studies Program by giving to this fund on GivingTuesday. The founders of the endowment and other alumni say the social activities and strong relationships developed between faculty, staff and students made their experience at EWU unforgettable. With your donation, this fund can reach endowment and help provide similar experiences for more incoming students.

ME/MET Alumni Endowment Fund

A gift to this fund on GivingTuesday will promote excellence for students seeking a degree in mechanical engineering or mechanical engineering technology. With scholarship help, even more talented students will graduate and become innovators, problem solvers and diverse, talented employees. The endowment is less than $5,000 away from reaching endowment. We need to reach that goal this year in order to start awarding deserving EWU students.

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. Humbled by this honor, Youngs has pledged to finish up the endowment this year. He invites donors to help even more students by matching his $5,000 gift on GivingTuesday.

Empowering Women Upward

For many women over the age of 35, making a life-changing commitment to pursue higher education for herself or her family is a challenge she cannot complete alone. This scholarship fund was created by two EWU alumnae to support those women who work hard to earn a college degree no matter the obstacles. Every year on their birthdays, the two alumnae invite their friends and family to contribute to the fund. Let’s use GivingTuesday to finish what they started!

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 Dvorak made on the curriculum and her students, it will reward students who feel passionately about exploring the world for social and environmental justice. On GivingTuesday your gift to this fund can go even further because two EWU professors will match all gifts up to $4,000.
