Giving to WMU Haworth

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.


  • My scholarships have allowed me to focus more on pursuing my education and less on the financial impact of tuition. Additionally, scholarships have allowed me to develop professionally by opening up time to serve in multiple volunteer leadership roles since I have fewer financial constraints.

Areas of support

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

Dean's Discretionary Fund

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

  • Experience-driven learning—Gifts to this fund provide development opportunities for students that provide professional experience, including company interactions, academic competitions, conferences and more.
  • Career readiness—Business students are ready for the workforce due to the college's investment in programming that supports professionalism.
  • Technology—Gifts to this fund support laptops for students with demonstrated need, so that professors may create a lab environment in any classroom.


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 and graduate with less debt and more opportunity.
  • Ensuring graduates are prepared for their careers by allowing them to participate in learning experiences fully with less worry about financial impacts.
  • Giving students opportunities for enhanced experiences, such as study abroad, leadership roles, and others.

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 that gives them purpose.
