Foundations and Corporations Make a Difference.
Foundations and Corporations are valued partners who support Worcester State University's mission to provide students a quality, accessible, affordable education. Grants, matching gifts, and in-kind contributions help fund students scholarships, student research, faculty development, athletic teams, lecture series, cultural events, and more.
Our business and foundation partners also provide valuable internship opportunities and help us fulfill our commitment to community service. Working with nearly 400 partners, more than 2,200 WSU students engage in community-based programs each year, addressing such issues as hunger, homelessness, child welfare, literacy, environmental protection, and social justice.
In addition, foundations and corporations provide vital support for WSU programs and initiatives that transform lives and enrich our communities. These include:
Local and national foundations have also strengthened the educational experience of our students. For example:
- The George F. and Sybil H. Foundation gave generously to the Latino Educationi Institute and supported the transformation of WSU's outdated theater into a state-of-the-art taching theater.
- The George I. Alden Trust helped fincance our Center of Teaching and Learning and supported significant renovations in our library.
- The Francis A. and Jacquelyn H. Harrington Foundation funded critical library purchases.
- The Davus Educational Foundation supported faculty developmentin high-impact learning practices and integrative learning.
In these ways and countless others, foundations and corporations are valued partners of Worcester State University. To learn more about how your organization can support WSU, please contact Vice President of University Advancement Thomas M. McNamara at 508-929-8141 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
