"On behalf of all Worcester State students, thank you for your support."

The WSU Phonathon Callers.

You can change the way the world works!  One of the most important calls you’ll receive this year may come from a WSU student on behalf of the Worcester State Fund.

After a busy day of classes and campus activities, a team of students come to the Shaughnessy Administration Building to reach out and call loyal alumni, parents, and friends. They are eager to talk with you about all the new and exciting changes that are happening on campus as well as the many ways your generosity supports quality education at WSU.

In the 2015-16 academic year, 662 alumni and friends contributed 691 gifts totaling more than $48,109.00 through the Phonathon program.  These Phonathon contributions support academic scholarships, student research projects, student internships, and upgraded equipment. 

How does my gift make an impact?
  • Your gift provides opportunities.  An urgent priority:  keeping WSU affordable and accessible to all deserving students.
  • Your gift advances knowledge by increasing the scale and scope of WSU's research to help better peoples lives. 
  • Your gift enhances student life by providing internships outside of the classroom leading to a more engaged, more motivated, and stronger student body.

Your support is critical to the success of our University and we rely on support from generous donors like you who share our commitment to providing high-quality, affordable, public, higher education.

As a public institution state appropriations account for only 26% of WSU’s revenues and the cost of providing an excellent education continues to climb. Students require access to the latest tools, technology, and programs to remain competitive in a challenging global world.

Give today!  At WSU we are committed to preparing students for personal and professional success both inside and outside of the classroom. 

Your support is what matters most and gifts of all sizes are greatly appreciated.  We know that collectively even small gifts can make a major impact in the lives of our students. So, when a WSU student calls to request your support, please answer the call.

Can't get to the phone in time?  No need to worry, you can still support the Worcester State Fund --Give Today!

Thank you for changing the lives of today's students!
