All donations made during the Apple Cup Giving Challenge will go to the Unleash Excellence Fund which helps provide WSU student-athletes with the resources to unleash excellence in academics and athletics daily. All gifts made to the Unleash Excellence Fund are tax-deductible and count toward your CAF membership/points, but will not count toward any seat donation requirement for season tickets.



Your financial support allows our student-athletes the opportunity to reach their full potential at WSU and prepares them for successful careers post-graduation. For the 2018-19 season, our student-athletes: 

  • Recorded the highest graduation rate in school history last year with 86%, well above the national average
  • Set a school record with a cumulative 3.10 overall grade point average
  • Totaled 10 All-Americans, 28 all-conference selections, and 156 conference all-academic awards

...and so much more! Thank you for making an impact on the lives of our student-athletes as they pursue excellence on the playing field, in the classroom, and in the community.
