Service Projects in the WCU Community

This campaign ends on September 30 at 11:59PM EDT

The Center for Community Engagement and Service Learning at Western Carolina University has one key goal, to offer opportunities to students to become involved and go beyond what is learned between the walls of the classroom. The Center encourages students to participate in volunteer opportunities and helps involve students, faculty, and staff with the local community. 

To expand opportunities the Center needs your help in assisting more students discover their 'everything.' With your donation you could help fund a student's alternative break trip, restock our local campus-food pantry, or support faculty engagement in our region. With the continuing growth of our beloved university, the Center has an increasing demand to supply funds and support more faculty and staff, more community members, but most importantly more students. 

We hope to spur our progress with a goal of $5,000. Ultimately, we need $25,000 to sustain our projects in the local community. Your donation will directly impact a community organization, a faculty or staff member, and a student during their time at WCU. Please be a part of helping more members of our university and community find their 'everything.'

  • $20 - Provides materials for 1 student to participate in a Day of Service
