The purpose of University Advancement is to increase private philanthropic support for Winston-Salem State University by:
Fostering enduring relationships with alumni, friends of the university, corporations, and foundations
Promoting the vibrant campus life and exciting initiatives that are transforming our curriculum, broadening the horizons of our students and faculty and improving the quality of life in our communities.
Encouraging philanthropic support—the sharing of time, talent, and treasure—to help fulfill our mission of preparing diverse students for success in the 21st century.
The WSSU Foundation is closely aligned with the Advancement Division and all private gifts to WSSU are made through the Foundation. The Vice Chancellor for University Advancement also serves as Executive Director for the WSSU Foundation.
As you consider donating to WSSU there is no doubt that our students have great need. In fact, did you know…
- Over 85% of our student body receives financial aid
- 60% expect no family contribution to their college expenses
- Nearly a third are first-generation college students
- Almost $1.5 million in federal and state grant funds were eliminated over the past school year?
