Support the Peterson Fine Arts Renovation
Our newest project is underway! With your support, we can help set the stage for future generations of student musicians at WSC. The proposed renovation and addition to the Peterson Fine Arts building will attract high-quality student and professional artists, and will make it possible for our performing arts programs to meet current industry standards for acoustics and accessibility.
The foundation is proud to offer students more than $3.3 million in scholarships. In addition, through contributions of alumni, employees, trustees, foundations, and corporations, the foundation has provided funding for the Carhart Science Building Renovation, Campus Commons Outdoor Pedestrian Walkway, Memorial Stadium Renovation, U.S. Conn Library, and the Willow Bowl, among other significant projects.
