GIVING MAKES A DIFFERENCE
At the College of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences (CPPS), we are fortunate to have an active, engaged, and philanthropic group of alumni and friends. Without your support, our program would not thrive.
Behind every gift to the CPPS there is a story. An alumnus of the college establishes a scholarship endowment because they received scholarship support as a student, to honor a pioneer who has inspired them, or simply because they believe in the next generation of students. A friend of the college donates to the Pharmacy Alumni Scholarship Fund to honor a family member. A cancer survivor donates to one of our PhD researchers making cancer breakthroughs. We are honored to be WSU’s unit with the highest percentage of alumni participation in giving, and we hope to continue to grow those numbers with your investment in our program.
Manpreet & Lindsey Chahal
After receiving his PharmD in 2010 and PhD in 2008, Manpreet Chahal knew that he wanted to give back to the college that helped him launch his career in the pharmaceutical industry. Manpreet and his wife, Lindsey, established a family scholarship endowment for future generations of pharmacy students at the college. Chahal also made a principal gift to launch a scholarship endowment. His generosity inspired fellow classmates to also donate to the scholarship, which supports pharmacy students with financial needs who contribute scientifically and socially to the college and demonstrate a high level of enthusiasm for the pharmacy profession.
“I believe in this generation of students. The scholarships and fellowships I received in school were critical to achieving my educational goals and career success. It’s a privilege to pay it forward. “
-Gerry Danquist, ’65, former executive at Eli Lilly, established the Gerald A. Danquist Scholarship in 2013
Gifts and investments from a number of individuals and organizations have allowed the CPPS to move well beyond the expected and accomplish the remarkable.
