President’s Fund for Excellence

Supporting Wheeling University Students and Employees in Need: 

The impact of COVID-19 will continue to be felt throughout our lives for many months to come.  As we navigate daily uncertainty and change, the Cardinal Family is coming together to support Wheeling University students and employees.

How Can I Help?

While there is no way yet to calculate the full impact of COVID-19 on the Wheeling University community, the pandemic has caused major disruption in the lives of all our students and employees. Many of our students and employees need emergency support to ensure they are housed, fed, insured, and able to participate in the online course format.

Your support will meet the needs of student’s and help them stay on track to graduate.  Additionally, your support will assist employees and their families with daily needs.

Gifts to the President’s Fund for Excellence will help provide support such as:

  • Laptop and internet access to those students who will not otherwise be able to complete their coursework.
  • Immediate support for students facing housing challenges or food insecurity.
  • Funds for students and employees who have lost wages or jobs they depend on to pay for education and support themselves or their families.
  • Funds to cover travel expenses for graduating students who will return to Wheeling University for graduation in December 2020 who could not otherwise afford it.
  • Resources for employees who need health insurance, emergency medical and mental health services.

The President’s Fund for Excellence was created to provide a way for alumni, parents, and friends to make philanthropic gifts that allow the University to address emerging needs quickly.
