The 1890 Challenge

Accept The 1890 Challenge!

While the founders believed a private liberal arts college was greatly needed in West Virginia, they never anticipated that Wesleyan’s reach would be around the globe.

Throughout Wesleyan’s storied history, the College has always strived to provide a highly personalized learning environment. Wesleyan graduates have been, and continue to be, well prepared for success in a rapidly changing world.

Despite the challenges presented by COVID-19 in the College’s 130th year, Wesleyan is determined to remain faithful in fulfilling its mission to students, alumni, faculty, staff, and the community.

Your financial support will help Wesleyan achieve this goal. Whether your donation is $18.90, $189, $1,890, or $18,900, you will make a difference.

Our giving priorities are:

  • The Wesleyan Fund (current scholarships)
  • COVID-19 Budget (expenses in addition to a typical budget)

We hope that we can count on you to accept The 1890 Challenge!
