Giving to Wright State


"Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world."
—Nelson Mandela

Did you know that before there was a Wright State University there was a Wright State University Foundation?

Since our incorporation on December 15, 1966, we have been working—in conjunction with University Advancement—to help this great university provide an affordable, accessible, high-quality education to students from all walks of life.

Like our founders themselves—key leaders of Dayton-area business and industry in the 1960s—we still believe that the dream of a college education should be a reality for anyone with the potential and drive to succeed.

Thanks to the generosity of individuals, corporations, and foundations, we have:

  • Distributed more than $51 million in scholarships
  • Established 811 scholarship funds

We look forward to working with you to make your giving experience as meaningful and inspirational as possible. Thank you for your support of Wright State University.
