April 17th, 2024

CougsGive is Washington State University’s annual day of philanthropy. The CAHNRS Community celebrates our philanthropic supporters on this day by sharing our stories, celebrating impact, and giving to the funds that mean the most to us.

On April 17th, 2024 make your gift to one of CAHNRS highlighted funds.


2024 CougsGive Priorities

College of Agricultural, Human, and Natural Resource Sciences Excellence Fund

Thanks to travel experiences made possible by passionate Cougs, students become future leaders in a host of life-changing careers. The Excellence Fund creates opportunities that enrich their learning journey.

College of Agricultural, Human, and Natural Resource Sciences Community Scholarship

If you’re struggling to afford food, housing, or transportation, success in school becomes so much harder. Through donor support, scholars in CAHNRS are able to handle financial crises and stay on track to complete their degrees.

Animal Science Development Fund

Join WSU’s Department of Animal Sciences in launching two priority projects—an innovative new dairy and an improved Meats Lab. Both will greatly benefit our students and the future workforce.

Human Development Student Emergency Fund

Scholars in Human Development improve the wellbeing of our families and communities. Your gift helps students overcome financial hardships while performing their critical fieldwork.

Viticulture and Enology Student Support Fund

With help from dedicated Cougs and the Washington wine community, students facing costly, unexpected emergencies are able to stay in school and change the world of wine for the better.

WSU Master Gardener Program Endowed Chair Fund

Help elevate the Extension Master Gardener movement! Recruitment of our first endowed chair, focused on sharing knowledge, increases the impact of more than 2,800 Washington volunteers.

The #CougsGive Impact

CougsGive directly impacts our students, research, and outreach. Last year we raised $36,000 in 24 hours for five highlighted funds! CougsGive enables us to support our most high impact funds across the College.

2023 CougsGive Impact:

How can you help?

Support CAHNRS during CougsGive by signing up as an ambassador and give to a fund that means the most to you! 

On April 17th, ambassadors will share their CAHNRS story with their network and communities. They use their voice to spread word through social media, email, or even text about the impactful work CAHNRS is doing for the world. Ambassadors lead by example making their gift on CougsGive and inspiring other philanthropists through their stories and advocacy to do the same.

Want to make an even bigger impact? Consider sponsoring a gift challenge! Challenge gifts encourage more participation by creating a goal or “challenge” for our community to work towards accomplishing. These gifts are crucial in making CougsGive a success. If you are interested in making a gift of $500 or more for the College to leverage on CougsGive, please reach out to cahnrs.development2@wsu.edu.
