How does it work?
Each member commits to a gift of $1,000 per fiscal year (July 1 to June 30). All donations are deposited into a restricted fund. Faculty, staff and students are invited to apply for funding from the WKU Sisterhood. The full membership of the group votes on distribution of the funds at the annual business luncheon each fall. Each member has one vote.
How are funds awarded and tracked?
The full membership of the WKU Sisterhood votes on distribution of the funds. Award recipients are required to either make a short presentation at the annual business luncheon or to provide a written annual report. The amount of money available for distribution is dependent upon the number of members and can vary each year. Although funds stay within the WKU community, benefits extend beyond the university campus, even some with international impact.
