    Message from the Foundation Chairman

    Thank you for your philanthropic interest in the EWU Foundation. Having graduated from Eastern and spent many years on the Foundation board (most recently as its chair), I have a unique perspective regarding our progress in the area of University Advancement.  What was once a state-funded institution has evolved into a state-assisted university, where the significance of advancing Eastern's mission has never been more important.

    These are exciting times in the life of Eastern.  In 2014 the EWU Foundation completed the university's first ever comprehensive campaign and experienced the best fundraising year ever.  Your support contributed greatly to our collective success.  The momentum of the past five years continues to create a culture of philanthropy that will assist President Mary Cullinan as she leads the university.As this culture has taken root, the response from you, our benefactors, has been both encouraging and generous. Eastern Washington University is clearly poised to continue its ever-increasing role in the life of our community. Your continued financial support of the University, via the EWU Foundation, will enable us to better serve the variety of economic, social and educational needs of our region, while ensuring the success of generations of students to come in their quest to start something big.On behalf of my fellow directors, thank you so much for your interest in Eastern, and your continued generosity.
