WLU Foundation

dog 2024

For many years the West Virginia legislature provided nearly 100% of the funds necessary to operate West Liberty. In 1964, as state support began to decrease annually, the administration established a body that would seek supportive funding from sources other than the state legislature. This was the West Liberty State College Foundation; now the West Liberty University Foundation, Inc. chartered into existence on December 28, 1964. The West Liberty University Foundation is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors and is operated, on a day-to- day basis, by an Executive Director, with offices on West Liberty University campus and a location in downtown Wheeling.
