WCU is committed to supporting Catholic education, and many branch fundraisers pursue that goal. In all, last year
WCU branches raised $454,833 through the planning of 170 Matching Fund activities, and members volunteered 49,833 hours for charity work.
WCU is a part of a much larger fraternal community that provides irreplaceable services nationwide.
