Still wondering why you should give?

Ensure a JWU education is within reach for all

Did you know that more than 90% of JWU students receive scholarships or financial aid? Your Senior Gift can help ensure there are no barriers to graduation for your fellow Wildcats. 

Support the area that means the most to you

The choice is yours! Your Senior Gift can be designated to support clubs and orgs, athletics, academics, scholarships, or Residential Life. Or, you can direct your gift to the JWU Emergency Fund to provide immediate assistance to students in need.

Ok, but what's in it for me?

When you make your Senior Gift, you'll feel good about supporting the Wildcats following in your footsteps. Plus, you'll be eligible for early entry into the Mary & Gertrude Society when you make an additional gift to JWU after July 1, 2023. You'll automatically qualify for membership after just two years of consecutive giving versus the usual three, and will receive the full benefits of membership.

Giving back to Johnson & Wales can inspire additional support from other members of the JWU community, as well as corporate donors and foundations. And of course, you'll be part of the Class of 2023's larger effort to make a difference at our university. Every gift counts and contributes to a positive impact.
