Giving Day 

WMU’s fourth Giving Day is Wednesday, April 14, 2021. I’m asking that you consider making a gift on WMU’s biggest day of giving during the year. Making a gift is easy (link at bottom), and any amount will help make a difference across campus. This is a ONE-DAY event. You may donate any time of day on April 14 only. Please share this with your family and friends!!

There are many different areas where you can choose to apply your gift, and if a particular department is not designated on your giving donation, the funds will go directly to WMU. But I’d like you to consider giving to the Disability Services for Students department. 100% of any funds received from your giving donation will be used to help assist our DSS students, including scholarship money, purchasing assistive technologies (such as Livescribe pens, reading equipment, and microphones), or furthering our staff in professional development to learn new strategies to assist our students.

When the power of our Bronco nation unites - the thinkers, dreamers, and difference-makers - we give our current Broncos the power to turn their dreams of today into realities for tomorrow. Please take a moment to visit https://givingday.wmualumni.org/ to learn more. Donate directly to Disability Services for Students: Giving | WMU Alumni *

From the bottom of OUR hearts, we thank YOU for your giving heart!

* Please note: The website uses the DSS’s old title of “Disabled Student Resources and Services,” which will be updated later this year, but rest assured, your gift will be going to Disability Services for Students by using this link.
