About the


A Tribute to Caring (ATC) gala was established in 1980 to raise funds for The Academic Excellence Scholarship. Throughout the years, this scholarship has been awarded to students from all of the colleges at WesternU who have demonstrated outstanding achievements and contributions to the community.

This remarkable event has also given us a terrific opportunity to celebrate WesternU accomplishments and honor outstanding friends and advocates of the University.

As of June 30, 2019, the Academic Excellence Scholarship Endowment had a Fair Market Value of over $1,400,00.

Your support for A Tribute to Caring is a direct endorsement of the mission, values, accomplishments, and goals of our University. Your generosity is made manifest in the successful educational and professional careers of hundreds of students who have received The Academic Excellence Scholarship.
