Be Part of the Change

Help Sponsor a WMI Scholar

Many of WMI’s scholars are first-generation college students. They have faced unimaginable odds to get to this point, including pervasive poverty, the death of one or both parents, discrimination, lack of transportation, and on and on. Each year we receive more and more applications from young people who are hungry for education, for the opportunity to use that education for the greater good.

Help us close the gap and support even more leaders of tomorrow as a Scholar Sponsor (monthly giving options available through PayPal)

Join Our Cornerstone Circle

Just as a cornerstone provides the necessary support to building walls, we appreciate WMI Cornerstone Circle members who are role models, demonstrating the power of philanthropy and encouraging a culture of giving. Cornerstone Circle members make annual donations of $2,500 to sponsor the full cost of a scholarship that includes tuition, room, board, and books.

Cornerstone Circle members receive periodic tailored updates on scholars’ progress and have an opportunity to engage with scholars through webinars and special online cultivation events.

Become a Monthly Donor

Monthly giving is a convenient option with big impact! Not only do monthly gifts help our young leaders learn and enact meaningful change in their communities, they also provide sustainability and increase the giving options available to our supporters. (Monthly giving donations processed through PayPal).

Make a One-Time Gift

Leave a Legacy
