Giving at WCSU

WCSU Cares


In 2018, WCSU leadership identified that many of our students were struggling with unexpected emergency expenses.  The types of assistance needed by students ranged from book expenses to food insecurities, short term housing arrangements, and unforeseen financial emergencies that may impact a student’s ability to pursue their education at Western. The WCSU Cares Student Assistance Fund was established to assist WCSU students who encounter these situations.

Although the goal of WCSU Cares remains to assist students that demonstrate financial hardships or emergency situations, given the unprecedented time WCSU students are facing due to the pandemic, applications for the 2020-2021 academic year will include helping students in need due to COVID-19.

This fund was founded by donations from SUOAF-AFSCME Administrative Faculty Union, the Student Government Association, and the WCSU Foundation, Inc. The goal of this fund is to help students during a time of need, to stay in school and make progress toward a degree.
