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 in the lives of our students.

We invite you to “Take a Seat!” Dever Stage has been home to thousands of events in its sixty year history. It has been a beacon for culture, hosting nationally renowned speakers and performers, University productions, and student showcases. And now Dever Stage is poised to begin a new act, in which it will play this central role in our community even more powerfully.

Dever Stage will begin a renovation in 2022 encompassing everything from new seating, to state-of-the-art lighting and sound, new acoustical panels, additional “green” rooms and wider aisles for ease and comfort. If you ever attended an event in Dever or performed on its stage you know how important it is to both the University and the community. Play your role by making a gift to the Dever Stage renovations and creating a space for future generations of Westfield State students. Gifts over $250 will have special recognition in Dever Auditorium.
