WOU Foundation

Western Oregon University Development Foundation

The WOU Foundation assists the university in building financial support for its educational, research, and public service activities, and coordinates the efforts of several Western Oregon University affiliated groups.


Founded on December 30, 1964, the Western Oregon University Development Foundation is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization. It operates on the WOU campus and with university support under the auspices of a 1990 agreement between the foundation, the university, and the Oregon University System. It is managed by a 24-member board of trustees composed of members-at-large and representatives from ancillary fund-raising and campus groups.


Mission Statement Western Oregon's Office of University Advancement, and the WOU Foundation, strives to increase visibility and promote understanding of the university among alumni, friends, and residents of the mid-Willamette Valley community. Their efforts support the educational, research, and community service roles of Western Oregon through activities which build friendships and ultimately increase resources for the university.
