Development Office

The Development Office communicates with individuals, corporations, and foundations about the College of Nursing’s goals, objectives, news, and events, while advancing the college’s philanthropic priorities. Our staff works closely with the WSU Foundation to promote, accept, and maximize private support for programs, initiatives, and properties of WSU College of Nursing. In addition, the Development Office oversees the College of Nursing scholarship process and the student ambassador program.

The development team would be delighted to help you support work that is especially meaningful to you – whether it’s to scholarships, program development, research or another area of focus. You can support nursing education, service and research by committing to a monthly or annual gift, including the WSU College of Nursing in your will, or establishing an endowment. Please contact us at one of the phone numbers or email addresses shown in the column at right. You may also visit the WSU Foundation website to learn about the various ways you can give, through outright gifts of cash, stock, real estate, corporate matching, planned giving, and more. Your philanthropic gifts make a significant difference in nursing excellence, and your support is sincerely appreciated.
