Department of Accountancy receives $400,000 gift

The Haworth College of Business at WMU has announced the receipt of a planned gift in excess of $400,000 from an anonymous donor, the largest single gift from an anonymous donor to the Department of Accountancy.

The endowed gift is intended to support scholarships for full-time undergraduate students enrolled in the accountancy curriculum in the College.

“We are both delighted and grateful that a donor would acknowledge the value of investing in the Department of Accountancy through a gift of this magnitude,” says Dr. Donald Gribbin, chair, Department of Accountancy.  “The gift comes at a time when more and more students are struggling to meet the costs of higher education.”

The College expects to offer over $18,000 in new scholarships each year as a direct result of the endowed gift, making more scholarships available to undergraduate accountancy students.
