WTAMU’s One West campaign sets a new record for funds raised

West Texas A&M University has surpassed previous fundraising records for its comprehensive One West campaign within the first year since its initial launch on September 1, 2021.

In the first fiscal year since the campaign was announced, WT raised more than $73 million. That total is about $60 million more than the amount raised in fiscal 2021, the previous record-setting year. In total, the campaign has raised about $111 million as of this week.

WT President Walter V. Wendler said in a press release. Great universities, without exception, succeed in fundraising. The two go hand in hand in higher education. The success of this campaign is essential to the future of WT and the prosperity of the Panhandle, as described in our long-term plan, “WT 125: From the Panhandle to the World.”

According to Dr. Todd Rasberry, Vice President of Philanthropy and External Relations, the campaign focuses on people, programs and places.

“The One West campaign is the fuel for WT’s long-term vision, known as “WT 125: From the Panhandle to the World,” so the campaign raises charitable dollars to achieve that vision. The campaign has three priorities, including people, programs and venues, in that order So the money we raise from donors goes to support our core educational mission while truly supporting these three priorities,” Rasberry said.
