The Impact of Gifts

Every gift to the Eastern Washington University Foundation has an immediate, positive impact on the lives of EWU students.

You can see examples of private financial support in action on all of Eastern’s campuses and within our communities where students, faculty and alumni conduct research, learn, collaborate on civic improvements, build careers and entertain us. We share these stories to express our gratitude for everyone who contributes to EWU student success. Thank you for your continued support!
