- Promoting a lively campus experience filled with exciting initiatives that are transforming the lives of our students, faculty, staff and communities;
- Enhancing the quality of our educational, co-curricular and extracurricular programs; and
- Encouraging the sharing of time, talent and treasure to help accomplish our mission of preparing diverse students to successfully depart to serve and positively impact their respective communities.
There are so many ways to give to WSSU. Whether you want to have an immediate impact or leave a lasting legacy, we offer various opportunities for you to make an investment of your choice, in a way that’s convenient for you.
The Division of University Advancement exists to support the growth of external partnerships and private resources for Winston-Salem State University. A coordinated process is required to effectively manage and sustain relationships with the University’s existing and potential supporters. The coordination of all fundraising activity among faculty and staff is a central component for building and sustaining relationships with external stakeholders. This policy outlines the procedures for the creation and management of relationships with existing and potential donors. Advancement is responsible for the coordination, solicitation, and stewardship activity on behalf of Winston-Salem State University. Development Staff serve as points of contact between the University and WSSU Foundation. Please contact Vice Chancellor, Dr. LaTanya Afolayan 336-750-2184 and development staff for assistance.
Through your tax and estate planning, you can invest in the future of WSSU students and programs through a bequest gift of life insurance or other deferred gift.
