Dear WWU Friends and Family,

Thank you so much for the generous support that has come in for this emergency fund over the past 7 months! Because of you, our Scholarship Center has been able to provide 37 students with emergency fund grants exceeding $23,000 during fall quarter so far. Now that CARES funding has run out, we appreciate any help you can provide in spreading the word about the importance of this Student Emergency Fund. We really hope to bridge the gap which currently exceeds $50,000 in requests. If you are able, please share the link below:

Thank you again!

Dear WWU Friends and Family,


Thank you for the outpouring of love and support you have shown to Western students through your gifts to the Student Emergency Fund! It is incredible to see that in a short amount of time, you have joined more than 230 other donors in support of this new fund generating more than $34,500 to meet the critical needs of our students. We have already received more than $50,000 in requests from students for help with rent, food, medical bills, purchasing laptops so they can learn remotely and help with tuition because they have lost part-time jobs. Because of you, our financial aid counselors have been able to meet these requests and connect students with the resources they need to be successful during these difficult times.


We thank you again for your generous support. If you have the ability to share this link, it would be amazing to have your help  spreading the word about this important effort:


Thank you!
