More Options for Investing in WPI

Our Giving Programs provide additional opportunities for you to invest in a specific area of need, such as scholarship or endowment, to honor an individual or your class, or to take advantage of special challenges that allow your gift to have an even greater impact.

  • Endowment:
    Endowment gifts are among the most important ways an individual can make a difference at WPI, creating a legacy of philanthropy that impacts generations of students and faculty. Learn more about how to include WPI in your estate plans.
  • Reunion Giving:
    Each year alumni honor their WPI education and the friends they made here with a reunion gift. Classes celebrating a reunion compete to reach the highest percentage of class giving and to raise the largest class gift. Make your reunion gift today.
  • Senior Class Gifts:
    Students at WPI understand that they have the experiences they do because others give to WPI and support their education. They also learn the value of supporting WPI early on. The Senior Class Gift is one way the student body gives back to the institution. Support the Senior Class Gift.
  • Memorial and Honorary Gifts:
    Many alumni and friends choose to remember or honor their loved ones by making a gift to WPI. Read more about making your memorial gift.
  • Faculty and Staff Giving: Faculty and staff can support WPI by giving to financial aid, fund IQP and MQP projects, and areas of most need. Faculty and staff can also designate their gift to areas they most support. Download the faculty and staff pledge form.
