About this Campaign

We are excited to announce...The Lubert Family Foundation has released $50,000 of their matching grant!

With this match we have reached our goal for 2020, but we still have more work to do to ensure future success of the RAM Initiative at WCU. We are already looking towards our goal for 2021, please continue to give. Thank you to all of our donors for their support!

Double Your Impact!!

We are so grateful for Mr. Lubert and the Lubert Family Charitable Foundation who have generously donated $250,000 over the next five years to support the RAM Initiative – but we still have work to do! The donation is part of a matching grant – which means we need to raise $50,000 by December 31st to take full advantage of the match! The more people who participate – at any amount – the greater the collective impact. Please make your gift to the RAM Initiative today!

Real Achievement Matters for our students, and their families, with intellectual disabilities, where a dream of attending college becomes a reality. Real Achievement Matters for West Chester University, where we embrace our commitment, and expand the true meaning of diversity and inclusion on our campus. 

This can only be achieved with a partnership between the University, the Foundation, our RAM Initiative families and the greater community. To this end, the RAM Initiative Fund at West Chester University Foundation has been established to provide the necessary resources to continue the program and to build reserves for those years when outside funding might not be available.

With your support, if we raise at least half of the program’s cost for one year over the next 60 days, the University is willing to commit to transitioning the program from a pilot to a permanent part of its inclusive excellence portfolio. Please help in reaching this goal so the University can begin to recruit and admit the next class of RAM Initiative students.

Make Real Achievement Matter. We encourage you to support access to a college immersion experience a reality at West Chester University.
