Giving to the Foundation

Giving Opportunities

Since 1945, the Woodrow Wilson Foundation has been at the forefront of transforming American education, building on a legacy of excellence and helping generations of scholars, teachers, and leaders to reach their potential. The Foundation raises funds for the programs and areas of study that have been identified as most crucial to preparing Fellows to be leaders in their professions and communities.

Your support helps the Foundation do its best work. Private foundation and government grants cannot cover all that goes on behind the scenes to make WW’s fellowships possible. The Foundation relies on Fellows and friends giving back year after year to help bridge the gap and sustain its mission.

Annual Fund

The Annual Fund is critical to the Foundation’s ongoing excellence, providing vital unrestricted dollars to enable essential operations. All gifts of any size truly matter! Please consider making the Foundation an annual charity of choice.

Invest in educating leaders!

Give by Making a Bequest

A charitable bequest is one of the easiest and most flexible ways to leave a gift to the Foundation that will have a lasting impact. Your attorney can best advise you about ways to provide for your beneficiaries, and, at the same time, help support Woodrow Wilson’s ongoing efforts.  A bequest can be made in a will, or by naming Woodrow Wilson as a beneficiary of a revocable trust, retirement plan, or life insurance policy.

If you would like to speak with someone regarding a bequest, please contact Nolan Yamashiro, Director of Corporate and Foundation Relations, at 609-945-7007 ex. 301.
