Fundraising has begun with the WOU Foundation, Grants Office, and other work. Thank you to those that met during finals week to brainstorm. More fundraising meetings will take place towards the beginning of fall term. Also, be aware that emails will begin going out at the beginning of August for those that would like to/are able to help with some preliminary fundraising prior to the start of classes.

Advertise with Us!: That’s right! Your family member or local businesses can now advertise in all of our concert programs throughout the year at a very reasonable cost!
