Profiles in Giving
Wesleyan depends on the generosity and dedication of our donors. While many are alumni who have experienced the benefits of a Wesleyan education, the College has solidified many great relationships with friends of Wesleyan, the community, foundations and corporations. The reasons they give are varied, but all are important and help Wesleyan to achieve it’s mission. Here are just a few examples of why our donors support Wesleyan.
|Relationship (n): A state of connectedness among individuals|

“We have given to Wesleyan over the years because we truly enjoyed our years there and understand that all colleges, especially small church-related ones, rely on alumni support to survive and expand.”
|Community (n): A group of people sharing common ownership or investment, goals, etc.|
|Chris Davis (’83)
“While I was non-traditional in some ways, I felt very much a part of the Wesleyan community. That sense of community was important to me because I was encouraged to be an active part of it while at the same time forging my identity as an individual.”
|Potential (n): The ability or capacity for growth or Development|
Mary Catherine Flythe ’67
