Support for Wesleyan comes from many sources, including alumni, friends, businesses, corporations, and foundations. The amount of support varies and has ranged from small but meaningful individual gifts to donations of more than $1 million. Funds may go directly into the operating budget to enhance the overall quality of a Wesleyan education—or donors may designate their gifts for specific purposes.
The tuition students pay to attend North Carolina Wesleyan College covers only 70 percent of the total cost of their Wesleyan education. The College depends on private support to make up the difference. The support of our alumni, friends, and the community is essential to the success of our programs.
Wesleyan is striving to build a strong financial base that will enhance its current quality of education and ensure ongoing excellence for future generations.
