GIVING TUESDAY

Giving Tuesday is a global day dedicated to paying it forward. On Tuesday, December 1, 2020, individuals, families, businesses, and students around the world will come together for a common purpose: to celebrate generosity through giving gifts of support to organizations that have impacted their lives.

Our Mission

Amid the COVID-19 crisis, we want to encourage our Tri-Cities community, alumni, family and friends to support the WSU Tri-Cities Student Hardship Fund and the WSU Tri-Cities’ Cougar Cupboard Food Bank Fund.  These funds provide campus leadership the flexibility to fund WSU Tri-Cities most current and compelling needs of our students, faculty and staff including but not limited to food insecurity, access to hardship funding, technology and other unexpected but necessary tools to succeed during this unprecedented time. Thank you for your consideration and support of WSU Tri-Cities.
