The WVSU Fund

To support the WVSU Fund, you may Make a Gift now or contact Patricia Schumann, Vice President for University Advancement and President of the WVSU Foundation, at (304)766-3021 or patricia.schumann@wvstateu.edu.
The simplest and most direct way to support the Mission of West Virginia State University is to make a gift to the WVSU Fund. The WVSU Fund supports scholarships, academic programs, athletics, campus upkeep, and much more. If you prefer, you may designate your WVSU Fund gift to support one of these key operating areas:


Unrestricted gifts to the WVSU Fund give the WVSU Foundation the flexibility to meet emerging needs and to invest strategically in programs that will help move the university forward—now and in the future.


Although WVSU is the most affordable university in West Virginia, many students need scholarship assistance to realize their dream of a college education. WVSU Fund gifts designated for scholarships help fund WVSU’s scholarships for deserving students.


To continue to offer quality educational programs, and to respond to emerging employment opportunities, WVSU must invest in faculty, research, and technology that equip our students for success. WVSU Fund gifts designated for Academics help fund these investments.


A successful Athletics program depends on funding for coaches, athletic scholarships, equipment, travel, and more. WVSU Fund gifts designated for Athletics help equip our 204 student athletes for success.

Information and Technology

To keep pace with changes in technology for research and teaching, WVSU must continually update technology infrastructure, equipment, and software. WVSU Fund gifts designated for information and technology help give WVSU students the tools they need to be successful students and graduates.
