Ways to Give

Every gift invested by ECAS alumni and friends strengthens our college. Thanks to past financial support, the Eberly College is poised to lead West Virginia University’s emergence as one of the nation’s premier institutions of higher education. Work remains as we seek to extend the development of the college’s excellence and diverse faculty, students and programs.

How to Give

We encourage you to make a contribution to the area which sparks your interest. If you have questions about the giving process, please contact the Development Office, at 304.293.6308 or  Marnie Dacko.

Gifts by Cash/Check

Please make checks payable to: WVU Foundation, Inc. Mail to: 

WVU Foundation P.O Box 1650 Morgantown, WV 26507-1650

Please include “Eberly College” or the academic discipline of your choice in the memo line of your check.

Online Gifts

Gifts also may be made through our online giving form. We accept American Express, MasterCard, VISA, Discover, and Diners Club International.

Maximizing Your Gift

You or your spouse may work for a company that matches employees’ gifts to higher education. These programs are a great way to multiply your support by doubling, or in some cases tripling, employees’ gifts. Please contact your employer for details.

Gifts Provided By Wills or Estates

Providing for the needs of the Eberly College through your estate is the easiest way to give. Letting us know of your provision entitles you to membership in our Irvin Stewart Society. To receive more information on this option please contact the Development Office, at 304-293-6308 or Marnie Dacko.

Tax-Deductible Gifts

Gifts to the WVU Foundation are tax deductible as provided by law. Year-end gifts must have a USPS postmark of December 31 or earlier to receive a current year tax credit. Online gifts must be processed by 6:00 p.m. (Eastern Time) on December 31 to receive a current year tax credit. Your tax adviser is the best resource for addressing questions regarding the deductibility of your contribution.
