Endowment Giving Opportunities

Wesleyan’s endowment is its financial foundation. The College’s endowment is a group of funds that is invested and provides annual earnings to benefit the College through endowed scholarships, professorships, programs, and facility endowments. The endowment may be thought of as a retirement account that earns interest, thus building resources that enable the College to:

  • Attract and retain highly qualified faculty
  • Increase scholarship funds and student aid
  • Keep tuition costs affordable
  • Enhance teaching facilities
  • Improve library offerings
  • Support student organization
  • Provide well-maintained facilities

The endowment must grow to allow the College to maintain and increase its level of teaching and learning programs and provide for future needs. Today, Wesleyan’s endowment is considerably less than that of many small liberal arts colleges. This is partly because Wesleyan is a young college, founded in 1956. Support from alumni is anticipated to increase over time as the number of graduates grows. Wesleyan needs each of its approximately 10,000 graduates and every friend of the College to do their part now to ensure Wesleyan’s current and long-term success.

We already have over 100 endowments in a wide array of areas to which you can make donations. It’s also very easy to create an endowment at Wesleyan. With a gift of $10,000 or more, you can establish an endowment to support an area that you are passionate about.Endowment Giving Opportunities
