Frequently Asked Questions

As a faculty or staff member, why should I give to JWU?

As an integral member of the JWU Community, you are already one of Johnson & Wales' most passionate supporters. Your work is critical to the success of our students and our university. Many employees also choose to make a gift each year to amplify their support and help strengthen JWU for the future.

The university relies on charitable giving to sustain the unique JWU experience. Did you know that more than 90% of Johnson & Wales students receive financial aid? The cost of tuition does not fully fund scholarships, nor can it cover important experiences outside the classroom like clubs and organizations, experiential learning, and athletics. These are just a few of the areas your gift can help bolster.

Giving is also one of the key metrics used to evaluate colleges and universities. Gifts of all amounts help improve JWU's rankings and ratings, which help strengthen our reputation. Your gift is a vote of confidence in JWU, and strong faculty and staff giving can encourage support from other members of the Johnson & Wales community as well as foundations and corporate donors.

What does my gift support?

It's up to you! You can select the area the means the most to you—whether that's athletics, Residential Life or the college of your choice.

How do I make my gift?

Most faculty and staff choose to set up a payroll deduction—it's easy to get started and you can "set it and forget it!" The amount you designate will be automatically deducted from each paycheck you receive.

Or, you can explore additional ways to give.





Forever JWU

The Mary & Gertrude Society was established to honor our founders, Gertrude I. Johnson and Mary T. Wales, who in 1914 had the courage and vision to create Johnson & Wales. More than a century later, we are proud to celebrate them by honoring loyal donors who have given to the University for three or more consecutive years.
