Widener University Development

Student Emergency Fund header

These uncertain times present unique challenges for our students. Many are facing unexpected travel costs, loss of income, interruption of co-op opportunities, technology needs and other unanticipated expenses. Your gift will make a real difference for these deserving students as they strive to complete the semester and continue toward their educational goals.

Thank you for your generosity!

When Widener students succeed, we all succeed - because We're All Widener. Give to the Student Emergency Fund >> | Give to the Widener Fund >> | Contact a staff member >>

In response to the coronavirus health crisis, Congress passed the CARES Act in March 2020, which makes several significant changes to tax laws and makes charitable giving more attractive this year.

The Power of One

The more than 330 Widener faculty and staff who have made gifts this year put our students on the inside track to sucesss by supporting financial aid, academic programs, undergraduate research, and strategic initiative funds.  We're grateful for their support, and look forward to many others joining us and unlocking Dr. Wollman's next challenge gift.  Will you be the one who gets us there?  Learn more and make your gift today >>
