We’re Working to Keep Whitworth Affordable
While a major segment of Whitworth’s budget is committed to financial aid, affordability remains one of Whitworth’s most significant priorities.
With efforts such as our “Pines to Promise” project, a unique fundraising initiative in which Whitworth provided $1 million in matching funds to create 43 new endowed scholarships, the primary focus of the remaining years of The Campaign for Whitworth continues to be on scholarships to help traditional undergraduate students complete their Whitworth degrees among the pines of the Spokane campus and graduate into fulfilling their promise in the world.
Providing Access and Lasting Impact
Increasing our endowed scholarships is critical to ensuring that Whitworth’s education of mind and heart is possible for deserving students from all social-economic backgrounds.
Endowed scholarships are distinct because they outlast virtually any other kind of gift to the university. Since they are designed to continue growing, they provide annual support for Whitworth students into perpetuity. The name you give to your endowed scholarship – in honor of a family member, a beloved Whitworth professor, an academic program, or a special interest – will live on at Whitworth forever and will serve as a testament to your choice to help students complete their degrees and live out their calling.
By funding a new endowed scholarship, you can help foster growth and transformation in the lives of students who, through Whitworth, become empowered to serve, lead and seek solutions for people and communities in need.
Your scholarship gift will provide needed budget relief and flexibility, and will help ensure that an education of mind and heart is possible for deserving students from all socio-economic backgrounds.
Annual scholarship gifts will be awarded to students immediately; or, with a gift of $50,000 (payable over five years), you can establish an endowed scholarship, which will be awarded every year into perpetuity. To discuss these opportunities, please contact a member of the Whitworth Institutional Advancement team at 800.532.4668 or 509.777.3243.
By investing in Whitworth students today, your gift will multiply many times over, as students discern their callings at Whitworth and become equipped to put their mind-and-heart educations to work worldwide.
Other Opportunities to Make an Annual Impact
Use your annual gift to support the Pines to Promise Project: Support a scholarship at Whitworth by giving to an existing endowed scholarship — Whitworth currently offers 214 endowed, donor-sponsored scholarships to eligible students.
Or, you can make an annual gift earmarked for scholarships through the Whitworth Fund, which makes student scholarships its top priority.
