  • WKU Giving Tuesday will be held Nov. 28. For information, visit alumni.wku.edu/givingtuesday

    #GivingTuesday: Giving Tuesday is a wonderful opportunity to give back to your favorite organizations. Celebrate your WKU Spirit and join with other alumni and friends to provide important resources for the entire WKU community. Whether you can give $5 or $500, your gift will make a difference at WKU. You can direct your giving to support the WKU Alumni Association, athletic programs, a specific scholarship fund, one of our crowdfunding campaigns on SpiritFunder or the areas of your choice. It’s not the size of your gift that matters, because every gift is important and every donor counts. Through the power of participation, you can help WKU celebrate the spirit of philanthropy this Giving Tuesday.
