About

Give a Hoot

Wednesday, March 23-Thursday, March 24 | Annual Day of Giving

Hoot Hoot! 🦉Give a Hoot—Westfield State University’s annual day of giving—is back from Wednesday, March 23 through Thursday, March 24, 2022! This is your opportunity to share your Owl memories and make a donation that creates an immediate impact on the lives of our students. Designate your gift to the area that means most to you—Athletics, Dever Stage, Owls Helping Owls Student Emergency Fund, Student Scholarships, and the Westfield Fund (greatest areas of need).

The Westfield Fund makes it possible for Westfield State to continue to be a place for growth, discovery, community, and service for our students. Enhancing current budgets for departments like the Banacos Academic Center, Mathematics, and Music and expanding mentoring and internship opportunities for students are just a few important areas of need YOU can support through the Westfield Fund.
