The Widener Annual Giving Campaign

Graduate Holding Cords

The world depends on Widener’s contributions.
Just as we depend on you.

While Widener has educated students for more than 200 years, we are as bold as we have ever been — guided by a single focus: a stubborn devotion to the success of our students, helping them discover and unlock their individual potential. To us, it’s a matter of principle, tradition, social justice, and educational philosophy.

The result is a mindset, character, and community that allows us to be inventive and nimble—creating one-of-a-kind opportunities for our students and preparing our graduates for successful lives of impact and distinction. We’ve charted a bold course for Widener’s future. Our success depends on bold contributions from Widener’s past.
