Thank you to our donors!
During the 2022-23 academic year, Widener's alumni, parents, staff, and friends stepped up to make gifts to Widener that helped us prepare the next generation of Widener's graduates - 1,375 of them this year - for lives of meaning and purpose.
In all, 2,943 donors, of whom 1,551 were alumni, made more than $7.4 million worth of contributions to Widener's programs, ranging from scholarships to academics to athletics. These gifts supported our efforts on each of the Chester, Delaware Law, and Commonwealth Law campuses.
Financial aid for our students is especially important, both because it opens doors to students from a wide variety of backgrounds and also because it provides those students with the ability to focus on their educations and their careers post-graduation. This is exemplified by our undergraduate population, where 96% of students receive some form of financial aid. These gifts had exactly the impact our donors were hoping for, as 95% of our class of 2022 graduates were in their chosen careers, post-graduate study, or military service within six months of graduation; for those who were working, their median starting salary was $72,000.
The support of our donors is key to Widener's - and our students' - futures in an increasingly competitive landscape. Your contributions are a key part of helping us go from good to great.
