The College’s open enrollment period for benefit-eligible employees is up on us! The College of Western Idaho (CWI) Foundation would like to remind faculty and staff about the opportunity we all have to support students through employee giving.

Since 2011, employee giving has raised more than $200,000 in support of students and programs at the College. So far this academic year, employee giving contributions have reached nearly $10,000. Now is the perfect time to review your current giving status and payroll deductions. Not only are your donations tax deductible, they are an investment in the people, programs, and ideas that strengthen our community.

“As staff, I don’t always have a direct connection to students,” said Director of User Services, Mark Westcott. “Giving is a personal way to know I’m directly impacting a student’s life in a positive way.”

“I give because I believe in the mission of CWI and how it helps students,” said Director of Adult Education, Jac Webb.

Whether you choose to give to Greatest Needs, CWI Foundation scholarships, the SCORE Big Scholarship, Wishing Well Fund, a specific program, or want to create a scholarship of your own – your donations directly support student success opening doors to opportunities and the future.
