Annual Fund

“I got involved with Wesleyan for many reasons, but the most important reason was for the students!  Because of the increased enrollment trend, the needs are rising for academic programs, scholarships, quality classrooms, student housing, athletic facilities, and cafeteria space … just to name a few.  As the saying goes, it takes a village … so I’m doing my part to help make a difference.  I invite you to join me in supporting North Carolina Wesleyan College.”

—Susan Sabiston
Chair, 2017 Annual Fund Committee

Why Give to the Wesleyan Fund?

In order for North Carolina Wesleyan College to accommodate its continuing growth, it requires significant resources.  Although enrollment continues to increase, tuition alone cannot support the cost associated with delivering a world-class education.

Annual gifts to the “Wesleyan Fund” … NC Wesleyan’s Annual Fund account … are made without restrictions.  This allows the college to spend these monies wherever the needs are the greatest.  That flexibility allows funding for innovative programs, unexpected repairs, and hands-on learning opportunities. It helps pay for financial aid awards, student research projects, internships, instructional technology, and so much more.

Every gift, regardless of the amount, helps to create a unique and rewarding NC Wesleyan experience for our students. Thanks to your generosity, you help make a difference at Wesleyan!
