WMU Giving Day

You are part of what makes WMU great, and during Giving Day 2019, you can do even more to help us elevate—in the classroom, in the community, and on the field.

#WMUGivingDay will kick off at midnight on Oct. 9, 2019 giving alumni and friends a chance to give back to WMU during our 96th Homecoming week.

This is the opportunity for Broncos to lift one another up to make us the institution of choice in Michigan, and to ensure all students who seek to make a difference in the world have the opportunity to do so with an education from WMU.
