Gifts to the WPI Fund support all students. That said, we invite you to get to know some of them—the smart, friendly students who work in the Call Center. Your contribution to the WPI Fund helps make their education possible by helping the university complete renovation projects, upgrade technology in classrooms, purchase resources for the library, send students to conferences and competitions, and take advantage of other opportunities throughout the year. Take it from Gompei — your gift is important.
