Support FaCET

Contribute to Teaching Excellence for Outstanding Learning at Western Kentucky University

Your tax-deductible gifts to the WKU Faculty Center for Excellence in Teaching (FaCET) will provide support for programs that nurture the teaching excellence of our faculty and graduate teaching assistants. Each instructor affected by FaCET programs in turn influences the learning of many classrooms of students.

Why should I give?

There are many good reasons for contributing in support of FaCET. Perhaps you wish to honor a teacher who made a significant contribution to your life or to fund a memorial item for a respected colleague or to help prepare graduate students for careers in teaching.

Your gift also can be used to support activities not allowed for state dollars such as

  • bringing in nationally recognized speakers or consultants
  • providing special awards for excellence
  • buying furniture or other decorative items that create a welcoming environment for faculty and graduate students
  • supporting graduate student travel to teaching conferences
  • providing coffee and snacks for visitors to the Center or to Center workshops

or to supplement existing state dollars by

  • supporting faculty travel to teaching conferences
  • buying specialized equipment for discipline specific teaching needs
  • purchasing subscriptions to college teaching journals
  • supporting special publications
  • funding travel or web-design to provide training to off-campus instructors

You can use the convenient on-line secure form to make your contribution. After putting in the amount, go to the Designations item and choose "Select the fund(s) for your gift". A pop-up box should appear with many options. Scroll to the bottom of the box in the section labelled "Other Commonly Supported Areas" and you will find a place to check Faculty Center for Excellence in Teaching (FaCET). If for some reason the pop-up box doesn't appear, you can designate us in the Other box or in the additional information area. Click here to give online to support FaCET activities. Donations may also be sent directly to FaCET (1906 College Heights Blvd #11095, Bowling Green, KY 42101-1095) or to the WKU Foundation at .

We welcome your gifts-in-kind, such as furniture, office equipment, household items, etc., to help in equiping our faciltity or for our anual yard sale fundraiser. Please contact the Center for additional information.

Everyone who contributes will be recognized on our permanent "Honor Roll" for WKU Instructional Excellence as a "FaCETnating Friend."
