Giving

WISR is a tax-exempt, non-profit educational institution with Federal 501(c)(3) status, so donations to WISR are, for most people, tax-deductible. WISR’s tuition is well-below our actual costs, and we handle our limited funds very wisely and efficiently. We very much appreciate donations from alumni and friends of WISR. Contributions help WISR to continue to thrive and to offer the distinctive, high quality programs that have been so well appreciated over the decades by our students, alumni and community friends. Donations may be earmarked for such special purposes as the occasional, and well-used, scholarship funds, or for the much-needed general institutional support.

To Donate by Using Pay Pal:




Contributions may be made by check, credit card or through paypal (by entering our e-mail address: mail@wisr.edu). If it is helpful to spread out a donation over time, it is easy to arrange for WISR to receive a modest monthly payment from one’s credit card. All contributions will be acknowledged with a letter of sincere thanks which can also be used for tax purposes. We also accept donations of useful computer equipment and books.

Gifts of Stock are also very acceptable and much appreciated.  One WISR alumnus donated 92 shares of Intel stock, which we recently sold for a bit more than $2,000.  For the next year, at least, our broker is:

Request for Donations to Support WISR’s Formal Application and Review for Accreditation

November 12, 2018

Hello WISR Students, Alumni, Board, Faculty and Friends,

This is an update that WISR is making toward great progress toward accreditation, although a positive outcome can never be guaranteed. And, this is a strong appeal to those of you who are able to do so, to donate to WISR before the end of 2018. As many of you recall, we received an anonymous donation (not from me nor any friend or relative) from a member of our community of $15,000 in early 2018. The donation was put in our account right away as an act of good faith, and it was supposed to be matched before the end of 2018, and so far, we have received only $6,000 in matching donations, although in early 2018 several pledged to give more by end of 2018.

Beyond the importance of matching this $15,000, it should be known that while our prospects for accreditation look quite promising, we do have a couple of big financial hurdles in the next 12 months.  First and foremost, we will have to pay about $45,000 in accreditation fees—first, $25,000 to submit our self-study and our online courses for review by DEAC  in early 2019, and then, hopefully $20,000 for a site visit late in 2019.

We have enough in our savings account to pay for half of those costs, and can use most of our $25,000 line of credit with the bank to pay for the rest of the costs.  However, our chances for getting accreditation in the next two years go up considerably if 1) we don’t touch our savings account, and 2) are actually able to increase the $23,000 in savings with another $25,000.  Having nearly $50,000 in savings would be a huge plus in seeking accreditation.

We will be able to do #1 if we get $25,000 in donations in the next two months, and we may be able to do #2 if we get $20,000 in donations in 2019.  In all other respects our finances are very solid, and our student enrollment is beginning to slowly grow—and more, and continued, referrals of prospective students to help us to grow slightly faster will be helpful as well.

While not asking for or expecting any special appreciation, I want to add that this year, as I did the previous year, I have cut my own salary by $26,000 (by 1/3). I say this to emphasize that I believe we are at a crossroads in WISR’s history, and I want to do my part to pitch in—to help sustain WISR for many years to come—even beyond my own lifetime. Further, many individuals among faculty and staff are donating their time. If we all pitch in, our likelihood for achieving accreditation will grow significantly!

All donations, large and small will be appreciated, and because of WISR’s non-profit 501(c)3 status they are likely tax-deductible.

Your contributions of time and energy to participating in our self-study process and outreach to prospective students (groups and individuals) are also greatly appreciated.

Sincerely,

John Bilorusky, PhD
WISR President and Member of the Faculty
