Every year, hundreds of Raiders—alumni, students, parents, friends, neighbors, faculty, and staff—join us on our founders' day, October 1, to give back. Every gift, no matter the size, makes a difference.

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to impact our Wright State community, your support is needed now more than ever. The university has received nearly 1,500 requests for emergency assistance from students experiencing hardship during the pandemic. The time is right now. Stand up for Wright State students on October 1—the Wright Day to Give! 

1,000+ donors. Thank You!

You read that right—1,000+ donors! Your support yesterday was overwhelming. We shattered all previous giving day records, and made a real difference for our students. From the bottom of our hearts, we THANK YOU.

BUT WE ARE NOT DONE YET! Let's see how far we can fly, Wright State!
