Giving to the Haworth College of Business

Elevating Tomorrow's business leaders

The Haworth College of Business is a place where students transform into leading professionals. They do so with the support of caring faculty, solid career preparation and learning opportunities that provide real-world experience. None of this would be possible without philanthropic support from our alumni and friends. When we come together to invest in every student’s success, we give them what they need to be their best in the classroom, in the community and in industry.

Megan Miller in Italy“I have had some incredible opportunities thanks to the generosity of donors here at WMU. Two of my experiences really stand out; the Stanford University Innovation Fellowship and studying abroad in Italy. The innovation program allowed me to develop my passion for change management and entrepreneurial spirit. During study abroad, I met some of my best friends, saw my passions come to life in a new country, and developed myself as a leader. These experiences truly would not have been financially possible without the help I received from the Haworth College of Business.”—Megan Miller, senior, marketing and leadership and business strategy

AREAS OF SUPPORT

You can help Haworth College of Business students by supporting these critical needs:

Scholarships

Hundreds of Business Broncos receive some sort of financial support from WMU, and much of that support comes from donor-generated giving. Scholarships make a big impact by:

  • Enabling students to stay in school.
  • Ensuring graduates are prepared for their careers.
  • Helping students incur less of a financial burden from student loan debt.
  • Giving students opportunities for enhanced experiences, such as study abroad.

Dean’s Discretionary Fund

Gifts to the Dean’s Discretionary Fund have a significant impact on students through two critical areas:

  • The Emergency Fund—The landscape of higher education has shifted over the years, changing the obstacles students face to complete their degrees. The Emergency Fund helps students with extenuating circumstances stay on track to graduate from WMU.

  •  Experiential Learning Opportunities—Gifts to this fund provide out-of-the-classroom opportunities for students that sharpen skills and provide real-world experience. Such opportunities include career readiness programming, company visits, travel for academic competitions and conferences, and much more.

Or, you can designate your gift however you choose by indicating the department or fund you're interested in supporting. 

YOUR GIFT ELEVATES

The world needs Business Broncos, and Business Broncos need you. Together, we can make a measurable difference in WMU students’ lives. All gifts, in some way, support student success and help Business Broncos graduate prepared for a career they will love.
