Where to Give

Giving Priorities

Each year the university identifies several projects or giving priorities that will support our students and our campus’ growth to meet the needs of 21st century higher education. Below are the current major giving priorities.

Annual Fund – Fulfilling Vision 2030

The university’s long-term plan, Vision 2030, is a plan to ensure distinctive excellence in student success. Your amazing generosity will go a long way to allowing Washington Adventist University to serve our students in amazing ways.

STEM Laboratory Building

The renovated Science building–to become the new STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) Laboratory Building–will offer approximately 33,000 SF in a collection of larger, 21st century, state-of-the-art laboratory and student study spaces to support the biology, physics, chemistry, mathematics, computer science, and medical laboratory science programs.

Student Scholarships

The number one challenge many of our students face is finding a way to afford their education. Almost all WAU students receive some type of financial aid, yet most students still struggle to bridge the gap between their financial aid and the cost of Christian education. Your support helps ensure our students can afford to attend a Christian University.

Health Professions Building

As the recent home to the university’s health profession departments, this building provides a vibrant opportunity for the holistic development of individuals through education, health and wellness. In addition to instructional space, the building has 7 state-of-the-art laboratories and 14 collaborative study spaces.

Music Center Phase Two

The Phase two expansion of the Music Center will be a performance center for the university’s four internationally renowned performance organizations. The expansion will connect to the current Music Center to facilitate the study, practice, and teach of the performing arts through the integration of curriculum and performance for students.
