Support students when they experience personal or other crises
Funds are needed to support students when they experience issues that could interfere with their studies. Over $65K has been raised and several students have been helped with the proceeds (for example, for students to attend family funerals overseas and assistance after a student's belongings were destroyed in a building fire). Please sponsor an element and support WMU students.
