Gifts from the annual campaign help Western Technical College enhance teaching and learning at Western. Unrestricted gifts from alumni and friends help:
- Provide opportunities for increased student scholarships
- Support new and innovative programs
- State-of-the-art technology
- Provide professional development opportunities for faculty and staff
- Facility Improvements
These projects will have a strong impact on students and allow Western to enhance its mission of providing educational opportunities to everyone. Funds are generally directed to the unrestricted fund (unless the donor requests the dollars to be put in a specific area).
Your participation is more important than the size of your gift. Small gifts can be combined to accomplish big results.
Remember to double or triple your gift through matching funds from participating companies. Check with your human resource director to see if you and/or your spouse's company will match your gift.
No one knows better than Western staff how special this college is and what a difference it makes in the community. Every day, you see that difference in the programs and possibilities that allow students to help solve real problems that matter to real people around the world. Every day, you also see the difference that private support makes to Western. You witness its impact in new opportunities for students, resources for professional development, and improved programs and facilities. All of these are made possible-in whole or in part-through gifts to Western.
Gifts from staff are especially meaningful because they send a powerful message from those who know Western the best. Your support, on top of your daily efforts, demonstrates to alumni, parents, friends, the Western community, and beyond that you believe in the mission of Western. For this, we are deeply grateful.
We all want a way to leave our mark on the world. Consider leaving your footprint at Western by purchasing a brick that will stand as a permanent testament in the main courtyard between the new Lunda, Coleman, and Kumm Centers. This is your opportunity to memorialize a friend or loved one; honor a teacher, child or parent; celebrate a special achievement; recognize your business; create a lasting memory of your time on campus; or congratulate a recent graduate.
