Give Courageously to Peace

Thanks to the generosity of William Peace University supporters, current and future WPU students have access to the resources needed to learn through immersive experiences, build upon their courage and develop the confidence needed to turn passion into purpose.

Your generosity directly impacts the success of William Peace University and the students that we serve. Together, we will continue to fulfill our mission of preparing students for careers in the organizations of tomorrow.

With the help of our outstanding alumni, we can reach new heights. That’s why we encourage you to explore what’s happening on campus, and discover ways you can help give back to Peace — whether through your time or donations.

Do You Have a Donor-Advised Fund?

A donor advised fund (DAF) is a charitable giving program that allows you to combine the most favorable tax benefits with the flexibility to support your favorite causes.

If you have a donor advised fund, DAF Direct enables you to recommend grants to this nonprofit directly from your DAF (as long as your DAF’s sponsoring organization is participating).

Giving Priorities

You can choose to direct your donation to a specific campus need. You can designate the fund you’d like to direct your gift when filling out the donation form.

I give to Peace as a way to pour back into the college that played a role in shaping me into who I am today. My recurring gift each month goes towards scholarships. I hope that this gift would help ease financial hardships for a student who may be in a bind or have to make a tough decision about their future. I don’t think anyone deserves to be in that spot, especially when it comes to affording college. I’ve been there. This is my way of giving back.
