You can still make a gift to the area of WVU that means the most to you!
2022 WVU Day of Giving


You did it, Mountaineers!

Thank you to all the members of the West Virginia University community who made the fifth WVU Day of Giving a record breaking success!

In just 24 hours, Mountaineers of all kinds – alumni, students, faculty, staff, friends and family came together in support of student programs, scholarships, research, infrastructure improvements and more. Every gift makes an incredible difference, and an impact across WVU.

The generosity from the WVU family has moved us above, and beyond. Thank you for your support and showing the world that it’s a great day to be a Mountaineer!
