Support Us

There are several ways that you can support our program:


Costs add up quickly and oftentimes, students find themselves in need of items such as textbooks, calculators and class supplies. If you would like to donate these types of items directly to our program, we will make sure that they go to participants in need. Currently, here are the most needed items:

  • School supplies (notebooks, index cards, folders, binders, report covers, portfolios)
  • Scientific calculators
  • Clickers
  • Gift cards (gas stations, grocery stores, bookstore)

You may drop these off to our office in G-30 of the Mountainlair on the downtown WVU Campus.

Emergency Fund:
