How to Give to Extension on WVU's Day of Giving

Please follow these instructions to make your WVU Day of Giving gift.

WVU Day of Giving - November 14, 2018

Each and every day, WVU Extension Service works to strengthen our families and communities, invest in our youths and promote good stewardship of our agricultural and natural resources. Our combination of research-based programs and local expertise in all 55 West Virginia counties has produced truly remarkable results.

West Virginia 4-H has played a formative role in the lives of youths in the state for more than 100 years. Whether through traditional offerings of club work, 4-H projects, youth agriculture or camping programs – or new experiences like computer coding, robotics, entrepreneurship, shooting sports and outdoor adventure – we are engaging young people in West Virginia with exciting opportunities and lifelong friendships like never before.

We invite you to partner with us in improving the lives of West Virginians.

During WVU Day of Giving, WVU Extension Service joins the University in a request for unrestricted support. When you provide a gift to the Dean and Director’s Fund or one of our units’ annual funds, your gift is invested in our best opportunities for growth and impact.

Thank you for investing in West Virginia through the WVU Extension Service!
