Young Alumni Giving


Starting October 1, 2013, your donation will have double the impact at Washington & Jefferson College through a challenge issued by a generous benefactor. If W&J’s young alumni raise $10,000, the benefactor will match your gifts one to one. For every dollar you donate, the benefactor will donate one dollar; helping your investment make an even greater impact.

When you make a gift to your alma mater, your participation preserves the value of your education. It makes the degree you earned an educational asset that gives you a competitive advantage. Preserving the value of a W&J education is a challenge that generations of alumni have passionately accepted.  Will you join them?

Be a lifelong President. Accept the challenge and express your support. Make a gift to W&J. A gift of $10, $25, $50 or $100 will make a difference!




98% of all W&J students receive over $39 million in financial assistance annually. Your annual contributions help the College provide scholarships to needy and deserving students. 


Alumni participation in giving is a key barometer for demonstrating the value of a W&J education. Increasingly, charitable foundations, corporations and entities that rank colleges and universities look closely at the overall number of alumni donors. Your participation is vital.


At W&J, our students truly embody the idea of a liberal arts education. Giving to W&J ensures the College is able to support student activities and travel, enhance our athletic programs and academic programs. These programs are designed and implemented to push students farther than they thought possible and challenge them to develop critical thinking skills.
