Program areas at Western Oregon University Development Foundation

413 wou students received a total of $1,109,838 scholarships, student aid and student loans for the continuation of their education and advancement toward the completion of their degrees. The wou Foundation board and staff actively engage in growing our capacity for scholarships. In addition to the many on-going current use and endowed scholarships, we actively engage donors to create new named scholarships, endowments or give to the general scholarship fund. Scholarships provide the opportunity for students to live more fully, experience more and make college affordable.
The Foundation sponsors University programs and activities that assist students in the pursuit of cultural, scientific, educational, and athletic programs. During spring of 2020 as the pandemic took hold the Foundation pivoted to meet student needs. Shortly before shutdowns, our annual giving day, held on the first tuesday of march, reached new heights by raising more than $160,000 to support various programs. Following that important effort, the Foundation transitioned to meet four immediate needs emergency student aid, wou food pantry, student-athlete scholarships and hamersly library's computing check-out program. As the University adapted to the changing world caused by the covid-19 pandemic and the future remained unknown, the wou Foundation was committed to supporting students during unprecedented times. These efforts supported students experiencing new stressors on their lives, including increased expenses such as unexpected travel, changes in housing and decreased earnings with the loss of jobs. Support of these four areas were critical.
The Foundation is committed to serving, supporting and strengthening the University's mission and goals as established in forward together, the University's strategic plan, and is actively involved with the University's master facilities plan to support future efforts to create a robust campus environment that is the best for learning.the goals and objectives of the Foundation are to accelerate volunteer and alumni engagement to participate in mentoring, fundraising and other activities to support the student experience.after completing research with donors, volunteers and alumni, based in appreciative inquiry, the Foundation has established a vision for the future: to ensure every student has the opportunity to have access to a quality educational experience that increases their ability to succeed in our ever-changing global economy and society. To this end, we are focusing on raising funds in five key areas: student scholarships, instructional innovation, facilities and fields, reducing barriers to student success, and enhancing programs that enrich the student experience.
