This campaign will conclude on


The late Chancellor Emeritus William H. Danforth, whose grandfather founded the Ralston Purina Company, never regarded privilege as a birthright. For him, good fortune came with a sense of purpose and a responsibility to give back. One of Washington University’s greatest and humblest leaders, Dr. Danforth served Washington University for more than 65 years, including 24 as our 13th chancellor from 1971 to 1995. 

Even if you didn’t know him personally, you certainly benefited from Dr. Danforth’s vision and compassionate leadershipWe ask you to make your Class Gift in honor of Dr. Danforth and in celebration of your own contribution to our incredible WashU story. 

When combined, individual gifts provide resources that address urgent issues and support promising opportunities through scholarships, research programs, technology upgrades, library enhancements, career services, and more. Join your classmates and make a gift that honors our past and builds a better future for every WashU student.
