Making a gift to the Washington State College of Ohio Foundation is just one way that you can have a positive impact on the lives of our students, faculty, staff, and the community at large.

Established in 2003, the WSCO Foundation was created to support the College's mission and institutional goals through philanthropic support.

With the help of a dedicated Board of Directors, loyal alumni, donors, friends, and volunteers, the Foundation has developed funding streams that provide essential financial support for the College and its students.

In 2021-22 gifts from donors like you awarded nearly $200,000 in scholarships to worthy students, and provided over $150,000 to support College programs and departments and to give a special helping hand to students who were facing unexpected crises.

Whatever your area of interest and level of support, giving to the WSCO Foundation will make a difference in the lives of our students and futures of their families.

Make a Permanent Impact with an Endowed Scholarship

You don’t have to be a millionaire to create a lasting legacy for students at Washington State College of Ohio. For a minimum of $10,000 you can create an endowed scholarship which will provide a self-sustaining, perpetual source of funding to provide permanent impact on our students and the College.

An endowed scholarship can be created with a lump-sum donation of $10,000 or more, or you may establish the scholarship initially as a cash scholarship and pledge to contribute a designated amount over a specific number of years until the principle reaches the endowment level, at which time the scholarship will be self-sustaining.

Contact the Foundation at 740.885.5706 or for more information on how you can create this lasting legacy.
