Alumni, parents, and friends are making transformational gifts to enhance the work being done here at Winston-Salem State University. These investments have a major impact in the areas of:

  • Colleges, departments, schools
  • Capital projects
  • Scholarships
  • Faculty support: Distinguished Professorships, Faculty/Staff Development Funds

Did you know?

  • 90% of our students are receiving financial aid (grants, loans, and work-study).
  • The cost of attending WSSU for an in-state student is over $12,000 per year. This calculation includes tuition and fees, as well as room and board only.
  • 60% of our students expect no contribution to their college expenses from family members.

There are several ways to help offset these costs and provide a gift that continues to help the university for years to come through long-range financial planning. Here are a few examples of how to raise your impact on our future alumni and lower the impact of estate taxes:

  • Make a bequest to WSSU from a will or a living trust- either a specific amount or a percentage of your estate.
  • Establish a charitable gift annuity, providing payments to you during your lifetime with the balance of the annuity going to WSSU at your death.
  • Endow an Academic Scholarship or Distinguished Professorship.
