In June 2012, the College of Media joined WVU and the WVU Foundation in the public launch of the new comprehensive campaign, “A State of Minds: The Campaign for West Virginia’s University.”

Beyond funding individual priorities, the campaign offers the College a unique opportunity to engage College of Media alumni and friends in our goal to become a national leader in journalism education and media innovation.

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.
Year-end gifts must have a USPS postmark of December 31 or earlier to receive tax credit. A USPS postmark of December 31 or earlier is valid regardless of when we receive the check.
Your tax advisor is the best resource for addressing questions regarding the deductibility of your contribution.
