Giving Day Countdown

Take this opportunity to support the future of WPI

March 18, 2015

The countdown to Giving Day is winding to an end. Tomorrow, WPI Giving Day takes place and represents a unique opportunity for the WPI community to support the future of WPI through this first-time event, a 24-hour giving marathon that starts at 12:01 a.m. on March 19.

All gifts will support the Foisie Innovation Studio, the first new academic building on the hill since the construction of Fuller Labs, and a place meant to embody the spirit and practice of the WPI Plan. Rising on the site of the former Alumni Gym, this state-of-the-art facility will extend the founders’ vision and maintain WPI’s momentum as a leader in cutting-edge STEM higher education, collaborative learning, and transformative projects. The Foisie Innovation Studio will have a lasting impact on generations of students and on our campus.

This will be a special day to join WPI’s 35,800 alumni in rallying support for this important facility. No gift is too small. Any gift of any size is appreciated and will make a difference.

So please consider making a gift on Giving Day on Thursday, March 19. To make a donation, you can visit or call 1-877-WPI-FUND. You can also stop by the Giving Day Headquarters in the Rubin Campus Center on Thursday, where you can join in the fun with raffles, giveaways, and selfies with Gompei.
