President's Giving Society

Coming together for a common goal, leads to great accomplishments.

Alumni and friends who demonstrate their ongoing commitment to academic excellence by gifting to the WWU Annual Fund at a level of $1,000 or above are honored for their philanthropic endeavors and recognized through our President’s Giving Society. This recognition is based on gifts of $1,000 minimum made within each fiscal year - beginning July 1 and ending June 30.

An annual contribution to the President’s Giving Society impacts every aspect of university life and plays an important role in the way William Woods is evaluated by corporate and foundation donors, as well as major college rankings.

You are invited to explore the levels of the President’s Giving Society and provide your leadership donation for the continuation of excellence at WWU. Recognition is also available at a special value for graduates within the last ten years (i.e., 2012 thru 2021 graduation years).

Recognition levels are:

  • The President’s Circle - $5,000 donation or more
  • The President’s Council - $2,500 to $4,999 donation
  • The President’s Committee - $1,000 to $2,499 donation
  • The President’s Coalition – limited to graduates within the last 10 years - $500 donation
