Impact of Giving

Winona State University receives less than a quarter of its total budget from state appropriations. It is likely that this percentage will decrease over time, making the Foundation's role increasingly vital.

Alumni and friends impact our university with every dollar they choose to give to WSU, providing funds for scholarships for talented students and for essential programs. Behind each gift is a unique story that reflects the loyalty of alumni, friends, parents, and families who are forever bound by the university. Through this site, the Foundation will share the names, faces, and stories of those who inspire us to do our jobs better as we honor their commitments to Winona State University.
