Largest funding campaign in Western history comes to a close

After five years of collecting donations, the Western Stands for Washington Campaign reached its goal of $60 million. The effort will be commemorated with a celebration on the school’s 124th anniversary.

Hundreds of donors including faculty, staff and outside participants will gather at Viking Union in the morning and evening on Feb. 24, said Stephanie Bowers, vice president of University Advancement and president and CEO of the WWU Foundation.
