The mission of the Washington State University Foundation is to promote, accept, and maximize private support for programs, initiatives, and properties of Washington State University and its regional campuses. The WSU Foundation also prudently manages, invests, and stewards the assets entrusted to it by WSU and its alumni, friends, and donors.
Established in 1979, the WSU Foundation was created not as an object of philanthropy itself but, rather, as the preferred mechanism through which private support is raised and managed for the sole benefit of Washington State University. Since its inception, the WSU Foundation has raised more than $1.58 billion in private commitments in support of programs and initiatives across Washington State University.
