The Wesleyan Fund

Why Invest in West Virginia Wesleyan College?

As the College prepares to celebrate its 125th anniversary in 2015, we are poised to grow and succeed as never before.  We are countering national trends with continued enrollment growth, fresh academic and student life programs to meet market demand and interests, new facilities and residence halls, unrivaled student accomplishments and a true and impactful commitment to community engagement and leadership development.  It is a strength befitting our proud past—and a resolve that will sustain our reputation as the premier residential college in the region

What Does the Wesleyan Fund Support?




Every dollar you contribute to the Wesleyan Fund supports the College’s current scholarship program.  Your support provides access to a life-changing education.  It allows Wesleyan to attract and retain a diverse student body.

A $1,000 gift in support of The Wesleyan Fund provides the functional equivalent of a $20,000 endowment gift.  Both the scholarship endowment and Wesleyan Fund scholarships are critical to the College’s future.

Can I Give Monthly to Wesleyan?
You can stretch your gifts throughout the year by joining the Wesleyan Monthly Giving Program.  You can give by credit card (American Express, Discover, MasterCard, or VISA) or through electronic funds transfer.  Deductions are made on or around the 15th of each month.

Can I Direct My Gifts to Other College Priorities in Addition or Instead of Current Scholarships?
