Annual Giving Societies

Annual giving is crucial to the success of WPU.

Giving provides for innovative and immersive curriculum, which shapes and transforms the lives of our students.  

Our annual giving societies celebrate our annual donors and their passion for Peace. Membership is based on cumulative gifts to The Loyalty Fund (unrestricted giving) or any university area between July 1 and June 30. In addition to knowing that gifts provide essential support for WPU students, members receive exclusive opportunities to engage with the university based on their level of support.
