WSU Foundation: Improving Our World, Together

No matter how you choose to support the university through student scholarships, funding new initiatives, or leaving a legacy, your generosity truly makes a difference.

Consider giving today!

It is our mission as the WSU Foundation team to raise general and restricted funds, steward them in perpetuity, and distribute them in ways that collaboratively support Winona State University.

We recognize those who give and we serve as a University advocate.

Ways to Give

There are many ways to give have an impact at Winona State University.

Whether you make a gift of cash, appreciated stock or through gift planning, we’ll be here to guide you so your generosity will make the biggest impact in the lives of WSU students that it can.


Nearly 60% of WSU students qualify for financial assistance. Starting a scholarship helps make a higher education possible for students hoping to earn a degree at Winona State.

The WSU Foundation awards $1.5 million in student scholarships every year, and an additional $100,000 in grants to support original special projects proposed by WSU faculty and staff.

These are some of the ways that the WSU Foundation is committed to education, innovation and enhancing the student experience at Winona State.
