North Carolina Wesleyan College has been privileged to enjoy the support of many alumni, parents, friends, corporations, and foundations in the greater Rocky Mount community and beyond. These gifts vary in amount from the smallest and most sincere gifts to the numerous magnanimous gifts of over a million dollars. Every gift, regardless of amount, is important.
Faculty/Staff Campaign: The Faculty/Staff campaign is our in-house opportunity to support one another in conjunction with the Days for Wesleyan annual campaign. This campaign offers our faculty and staff at the traditional campus and all 10 of our Aspire sites to make a difference in the life of the college through making a gift to support Days for Wesleyan. It is an important and most integral part of this annual effort. Our goal is to have 100% participation.
Days for Wesleyan: The traditional and annual campaign titled “Days for Wesleyan” began in 1982. The campaign model recruits volunteers who canvass the greater Rocky Mount community for gifts to support the needs as cited above with unrestricted gifts. Gifts to the Days for Wesleyan campaign range from $10 to $10,000.
Wesleyan Phonathon: There are four phonathons scheduled throughout the year to raise unrestricted money to support the college. Students man the phones and call repeat phonathon donors as well as prospective donors such as LYBUNTS, CYBUNTS, and Never Givers. The first phonathon is in conjunction with Days for Wesleyan; the second is to appeal to donors regarding the end of the calendar/tax year; the third is to catch up on all missed attempted calls; and the fourth is an appeal to a special year-end project, which also includes a Thankathon.
