Development at WestConn

The WCSU Foundation fuels the university's effort to change lives. Classified as a tax-exempt 501 (c)(3) organization by the IRS, the Foundation effectively raises funds and carefully manages charitable gifts for the support of the university. Working with the university and other partners, the Foundation operates under the leadership of a board comprised of respected community professionals.
The Foundation's philanthropic programs include annual giving, special events, major gifts, capital campaigns, endowments and planned giving. We invite you to make a pledge online now.

The Foundation sponsors on-campus activities and supports university projects that enrich the entire learning experience for our students and offer vivid cultural opportunities for the greater community. Your gift can complement limited state funding to scholarship programs; building funds; cultural, artistic and athletic programs; campus beautification; and so much more.
