We're MWU Proud

Why Do People Give to MWU Proud?

Faculty and staff members tell us they give for the following reasons:

  • They are proud to work at MWU.
  • They support our mission and values.
  • They want to help future healthcare providers - our students.
  • They want to honor someone.
  • They want the tax benefits of a donation.

How Do I Make a Gift to the “We're MWU Proud” Campaign?

Faculty and staff are able to give conveniently through payroll deduction, through our online giving page,  by personal check, or credit card.  Print out and complete the following gift form appropriate for your campus or click on the make a gift online link below to make your gift online.

What Other Gift Opportunities Can I Consider?

Faculty and staff also can make gifts through a spouse or partner's employee matching gift program, through estate gifts, or through gifts of appreciated securities. We will be glad to assist you.

How Do I Make a Gift in Memory or in Honor of Someone Special? 

We welcome the opportunity to assist you in making a gift in memory or in honor of a family member, friend, or colleague. The Downers Grove and Glendale Campuses offer gift opportunities that can be commemorated with a bench, tree, or plaque.

How Will My Gift Be Acknowledged?

You will receive a formal letter of acknowledgment for tax purposes and a letter of appreciation from Kathleen H. Goeppinger, Ph.D., President & Chief Executive Officer. In addition, you will be included in the Annual President's Report with other faculty and staff donors.
