Why we need your support
Philanthropic support ensures our future stability and helps us maintain our competitive edge for attracting the best and brightest students. Your gift to our areas of greatest need allow us the flexibility to adapt to the rapidly changing academic and clinical environment. We hope some of the recent investments in your alma mater rejuvenate the gratification, satisfaction and joy you felt when you earned your degree.
How you can help
Contributing to one of our priority funds allows us to address our immediate needs.
As the phased renovations continue, Urgent Care and Patient Registration will begin in early 2020. Be a part of creating our new look by sending your gift today. $1000 will allow you to name a locker in the new locker hallway. Or think bigger and support the naming of an urgent care operatory! We have already completed the relocation of the Dean’s Suite to anchor the main entrance to Health Sciences North; completed a new Academic and Student Affairs Suite and replaced the entirety of the student locker hallway. The future of dentistry at WVU is under transformation, and you will want to be a part of it!
With funds donated last year, we secured our Chair of Pediatric Dentistry. We are recruiting for a second Pediatric dentist. The fund also supports the greatest needs of current faculty for retention and credential enhancement.
Gifts to the Dental Century fund support the school’s most pressing needs, such as student travel to conferences, research funds, technology and community outreach services.
