You Know Us

WSU Tri-Cities is your university — whether that is literally the case because you are an alumnus or simply because we impact your community and the world. WSU Tri-Cities is an institution that educates your children at the university level, prepares a highly skilled workforce for employers, researches issues affecting local businesses and global needs and participates fully in economic development efforts. You know that your gifts to WSU Tri-Cities will make a real difference.

We Need You

Like every other university in the country, Washington State University Tri-Cities needs private, philanthropic support — your support. State funds alone cannot provide the resources required to achieve the vision of an even greater education for our students. We encourage you to help us to prepare graduates who are industry ready for employment and competitive on a global scale, who will become contributing members of society and make the world a better place.

We’re A Good Investment

Your gifts to WSU Tri-Cities remain here on this campus. We will use all the resources at hand to become recognized as a destination campus, valued for the depth and breadth of our academic quality, preferred for personalized education and smaller class sizes, known for our availability of scholarship assistance, and selected for accessibility of meaningful internship opportunities.

We know that every gift has a unique story behind it. We’d love to hear yours.

I’d like to support the university but don’t know where to start. Do you have a suggestion?

Giving to a scholarship fund is a great way to start. Many students would not be able to complete their degrees without scholarship support. Donations can be in any amount.

Where do I send my check?

You can mail checks to the Office of Development & Alumni Relations, WSU Vancouver, 14204 NE Salmon Creek Ave., Vancouver, WA 98686-9600.
