To our generous donors,
As the COVID-19 pandemic disrupts your daily routines, the same is true for our campus community. In a short time, much changed to ensure the safety and well-being of our WVU family. While this event is unprecedented, we have come together during other challenging times with one guiding constant — the overwhelming generosity of our university family. In the spirit of Mountaineers leading, we encourage you to continue this tradition by giving to areas that are important to you and will have the most impact on the entire WVU community.
