How important are planned gifts to Wichita State University? Twenty seven percent of all philanthropic funds came from estate gifts during fiscal year 2019. Our free estate planning guide and monthly newsletter are helpful resources.
Our students recognize that a college degree is a path to a better life. But many have financial limitations that put them at risk of dropping out. More than 40 percent of WSU students are first-generation and more than 30 percent of those who seek financial assistance are denied each year for lack of resources. The need for more scholarships is pressing.Learn More
