The mission of the Worcester State Foundation is to promote the growth and progress of Worcester State University beyond what is possible with state funding.Excellent colleges and universities flourish when they have the resources to attract motivated students and talented faculty, equip and maintain state-of-the-art facilities, and adapt programs to the changing needs of students and the community. The Worcester State Foundation works to ensure that Worcester State University has the resources it needs to thrive and maintain its reputation for academic excellence—now and into the future. We connect your charitable objectives with the needs and mission of the university. Under the management of the University Advancement Division, the foundation increases awareness of WSU’s excellence, promotes Worcester State’s importance and vitality, and raises private gifts to support the university’s mission. As an IRS-approved 501(c)(3) tax-exempt charitable organization, the foundation develops, fosters, and cultivates relationships with WSU’s external constituencies, including alumni, friends, corporate partners, private foundations, and supporters in the greater Worcester community and beyond.
