RWU Day of Giving

Three funds, three opportunities to support RWU students

Financial Aid and Scholarships: Our initial goal was $75,000. We surpassed that and with the generous matching challenge from Trustee Keith Johnson P’18 and an anonymous Hawk family we raised over $151,000 and counting for RWU students.

Athletics: We were able to raise $66,000 which unlocked a $20,000 match for a total of over $85,000.  Thank you to Board of Advisor Rick Daubenspeck ’85, P’17 and an anonymous Hawk donor for their leadership in the donor match challenge!

RWU Law: Thanks to a generous match from the Mandell-Boisclair Family we raised over $13,000 for the Mandell-Boisclair Justice Scholarship Fund which will provide endowed scholarships to RWU Law for diverse law students, and those intending to practice public interest law.
