The Western Kentucky University Foundation is an
independent, nonprofit organization incorporated in the Commonwealth of
Kentucky. Chartered in 1993, it promotes the welfare and future development
of Western Kentucky University's educational goals by managing assets
and maintaining donor records for the benefit of Western Kentucky University.
The Western Kentucky University Foundation, the
official repository for gifts to the University, exists for the benefit
of Western Kentucky University. To accomplish its mission, the Foundation
provides those services normally associated with a university related
foundation, including but not limited to the volunteer leadership, fund
solicitation, gift acceptance and acknowledgement, and asset management
Accounts are established with the Foundation to allow for funds to be
used. There are three basic criteria which determine the proper use of
WKU Foundation funds.
1. Western Kentucky University must benefit in
an acceptable manner.
2. The use must fall within the donor's intent for the gift.
3. The use must not jeopardize the Foundation's tax-exempt status.
