United in our support

We Are Western” is more than just this year’s Faculty and Staff Campaign theme. It’s the statement we will make together to our students, our alumni and outside funding sources that as Western employees, we believe in our students and are willing to demonstrate that with our giving.

It's not always about the dollars

Give an amount that is comfortable to YOU. The campaign is about PARTICIPATION. All Western Employees participating in the FY13 campaign with their gift will receive a ‘We Are Western” wrist band, delivered to you by a student who has benefitted from faculty and staff giving. Show your support, and wear your Purple and Gold anytime!

Make the statement during National Philanthropy Week

We hope you will display your support all year, but especially during National Philanthropy Week - November 12-16 - when we will be directing our students to keep an eye out for “We are Western” wristbands among the faculty and staff.

As Western employees, our own investment in our students and our university is the most powerful statement we can collectively make. Please join us in making your gift and displaying that support November 12-16.
