Giving Day Volunteer

How much can we really do in one day?

A lot! And with your help, we can do even more.

By encouraging other Broncos to sign up to fundraise on behalf of a University fund, we can extend our reach and create the momentum we need for a successful day. Peer outreach is a crucial and powerful component of giving day, and anyone can do it

But how?

Our peer-to-peer fundraising tool is an easy and secure way to raise funds for WMU. With a personalized fundraising page, you can let your Bronco network know what you’re supporting on giving day, and ask them to give as well.

1. Start at WMU Alumni's Fundraising page
3. Follow the instructions for customizing your page
4. Search for the college, unit, or specific fund you want to support

Create a page

How do I choose a fund?

With thousands of funds and areas of the University to support, the possibilities are endless. You can fundraise for the college or program where you received your degree, the sports team that you love most, or a number of other initiatives across the University. The arts, scholarships, funds that provide resources to students in need…the choice is yours.
