How To Give

Thank you for considering a gift to West Virginia Wesleyan College and investing in the future of young adults.  We challenge our students to a life-long commitment to develop their intellectual, ethical, spiritual, and leadership potential and to set and uphold standards of excellence.  Whether you give to the Wesleyan Fund, a special initiative, or another giving priority, like an academic program or an athletic team, your support is greatly appreciated.

Here are the ways in which you can give to Wesleyan.

Make a Gift Online

Make a Monthly Recurring Gift

Monthly credit card gifts can be set up through our online form. To make a monthly gift through electronic funds transfer (EFT) or by credit card (American Express, Discover, MasterCard, or Visa), print and return the Monthly Giving form (EFT Monthly Giving Form – PDF) or call Pam Weaver at 304-473-8117. Withdrawals are made on or around the 15th of each month.

Corporate Matching Gifts

Corporate Matching gifts are made by your employer to match your personal gift to WVWC. A dollar-for-dollar match is common, but some companies contribute two or even three dollars for each dollar donated. Your Human Resources Department can provide you with the appropriate guidelines to complete your match.

Make a Planned Gift

West Virginia Wesleyan College alumni and friends have a long history of supporting what are known as deferred gifts, in which the donor has deferred the College’s receipt of the full value of the gift, or where the donor has reserved some benefit from the amount given. Deferred giving not only offers tremendous benefits to Wesleyan, but can also help you, your spouse, and/or your estate enjoy tax and income advantages.

Some popular methods of deferred gift planning include Charitable Gift Annuity, Charitable Remainder Trust, Charitable Lead Trust, Gifts of Life Insurance, Gifts of Interest in Real Estate, Testamentary Gifts, Gifts of Retirement Account Assets, or Payable-on-Death (POD) Accounts.

WVWC Planned Giving Coordinator Rev. David Peters will work with you and your financial advisors to create a plan that works for you. For more information, please contact David at peters_d@wvwc.edu or 304-562-3063. Learn more about planned gift opportunities at Wesleyan.
