We define and study the weak Haagerup property for C-algebras in this article. A C-algebra with the Haagerup property always has the weak Haagerup property. We prove that a discrete group has the weak Haagerup property if and only if its reduced group C-algebra also has that property. Moreover, we consider the permanence of the weak Haagerup property under a few canonical constructions of C-algebras.
