Thank you!

CougsGive was a one-day fundraising event on April 17.

We are grateful for the generosity of everyone who supported the WSU Extension Master Gardener Program by giving to the WSU Master Gardener Endowed Chair fund. With two leadership challenge gifts we raised over $26,000, bringing the total to over $140,000 toward the establishment of the first ever faculty chair fully dedicated to the WSU Extension Master Gardener Program.

CougsGive is now over, but you can still make a gift by clicking the link below. Go Cougs!
