To build on the legacy of global leadership in maritime education, research, and capacity building and to secure innovative new programmes that protect the future of our oceans we are encouraging investments in our Endowment Fund. This Fund will support WMU’s future and ensure lasting impact in perpetuity.


By supporting the University’s Annual Fund, investors provide an essential source of operating capital vital to the mission of WMU. Annual gifts support the work of the University, including student (in particular fellowships) and faculty support as well as its operations and first-rate academic facilities.


To build on the University’s impact and ensure its growth and sustainability, WMU also seeks investments in the form of multi-year pledges (over 3-5 years). These funding commitments, unrestricted or restricted, will enable new programming and initiatives as well as create stable streams of revenue for the University.
