WPI Office of Lifetime Engagement
Philanthropy from alumni and parents makes up a crucial proportion of the income of a university. Philanthropic donations fund scholarships, unanticipated academic opportunities, student entrepreneurship, and more. Unfortunately Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) has been experiencing a decrease in frequency of alumni donations and see cultivating a robust culture of philanthropy that builds on the strong school pride as a way to reverse the decline. An outline of a plan to create a strong philanthropic culture at WPI has already been created. The plan needs to be implemented to set WPI up to have a strong philanthropic culture for the future with the hope of an increased percentage of alumni giving back to WPI post-graduation.
