Supporting Our Students

The Campaign for Washington State University exceeds fundraising goal

Thank you! With your support, Voiland College successfully achieved its five-year, $125 million Campaign for Washington State fundraising goal by helping raise more than $130 million in private donations.

Gifts provided direct support for faculty through chairs and distinguished professorships, investments in research and facilities, help with new construction projects and laboratory improvements, funding for students through scholarships, and donations to the college’s excellence funds that provide discretionary dollars for its highest needs.

In the past five years, Voiland College established 73 new endowments to provide long-term support for undergraduate scholarships, operational support, faculty, and research.

“The impact of this support is far reaching and boosts every aspect of the college with tangible and visible outcomes,” said Candis Claiborn, dean of Voiland College of Engineering and Architecture. “Each and every donation helps us improve lives through our research, addresses the grand challenges that face this nation, and educates the next generation of engineers and architects who will innovate and inspire us.”
