Thursday, September 22, is the start of our annual fall fundraiser, The Wesleyan Promise Campaign. This campaign seeks vitally important support for various purposes including student scholarships, the latest in cutting-edge technology, lab enhancements, recruitment of the best and brightest students and faculty, safety gear for athletes and much more. Tuition alone does not cover the cost of these items, which is why we are asking for your support. Your gift to our campaign will help us meet certain needs that no other funding sources have met.
To commemorate our 65th Founding Anniversary, we ask that you consider making a special gift to show your support this year. Higher education is a key driver of economic development for this region and your gift, no matter the size, will be a great investment in the lives of our students and our community. Our campaign goal is to raise $325,000 by the end of October. We hope that you will help us succeed and meet the needs of our students this year … that’s our Wesleyan Promise!
All credit card payments can be securely completed online by clicking on the gift button below or by calling 252.985.5266. Credit card payments allow the options for a one-time or a recurring gift charge. When you make a gift, you have the satisfaction of knowing that you are making a difference in the lives of Wesleyan students.
Remember, save the date for our 66th Founding Anniversary Celebration scheduled for 5:30 p.m., Thursday, October 20, 2022 in Minges Auditorium of The Dunn Center. Mrs. Kelly Joyner Lee, Program Officer for the North Carolina Community Foundation, will be the featured speaker. The public is invited to attend.

Give Your Time... Consider Volunteering!
Giving of time and talents are also important, just as donations of money and securities help build new opportunities, your energy in helping/supporting the college is vital to our success. No matter which method you choose, your gift will directly impact the students! Consider getting involved in various Alumni Organizations such as Alpha Delta Chi, Nu Gamma Phi and more. Become a Class Champion or perhaps serve as a volunteer for Rock the Mount or as a special guest speaker for a student event.
North Carolina Wesleyan University 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 amounts from the smallest and most sincere gifts, to very large gifts of over a million dollars.
Every gift, regardless of amount, is important.
Other Ways You Can Give...
Your gifts don’t only help keep the lights on, donating to NC Wesleyan helps in many ways including funding academic programs, maintaining facilities and helping enhance students’ overall college experience.

Endowments & Scholarships
