Make a donation to the Bryan and Kathy Staufer Emergency Fund

You can make a difference in the health and well being of a Western Michigan University student by making a donation to the Bryan and Kathy Staufer Emergency Fund. Good health is an integral factor in student success, and many students on campus are uninsured or under-insured. Your donation will have a positive effect on the health and well being of these students and support their journey to success at WMU.

Your generosity makes a difference for students in need by paying a portion of their medical bills at Sindecuse Health Center. Clinic visits, lab work, nutrition counseling and physical therapy are some of the services that eligible students may use. Your donation is deeply appreciated by the students who receive these funds.
