Current Initiatives


The Foundation is focused on initiatives to meet the changing needs of our students, faculty and staff. These are the major fundraising projects we are working toward.

COVID-19 Student Relief Funding


You can provide emergency relief funding to help students in need

The spread of COVID-19 creates immediate needs for our Winona State University community. Our students face challenges related to housing, tuition, and other unexpected costs as the university prepares for the academic year.

If you are able to help, please consider a donation to several emergency funds which provide for students in need.

Laird Norton Center for Art & Design


The Laird Norton Center for Art and Design will offer premiere education in the creative fields to students across disciplines. The Center will also serve as a catalyst for enriching and expanding the Winona arts community.

Learn how the Laird Norton project is creating innovative spaces while preserving this historic place.

WSU Stadium


WSU Stadium Renovation will benefit Warrior athletes, students, fans and the community supporters by providing an enhanced game day experience for all.

The upgraded facilities will boost the university's reputation, attracting top DII athletes and aiding recruitment overall.
