The Wesleyan Fund provides scholarships and financial aid. It preserves tradition, provides access, and ensures the future. Unlike endowed funds, 100% of the money secured for The Wesleyan Fund is immediately utilized to support students. The impact of these dollars is significant and meaningful.
Why Every Gift Counts
Not only does every gift to The Wesleyan Fund provide dollars for current scholarships, but every gift is also an endorsement of West Virginia Wesleyan College—our mission and our importance to the region and world. The more alumni, parents, and friends of the College engage in annual giving each year, the greater the message we send about a West Virginia Wesleyan College education. High rates of alumni and parent participation advance Wesleyan’s position in national publications such as Forbes and U.S. News & World Report. In 2018, Wesleyan was listed in Forbes “200 Colleges with the Happiest, Most Successful Alumni” and as a first-tier school in the South Regional University classification in U.S. News & World Report’s Best Colleges Guide. The school’s alumni participation rate was one of the key factors in ranking Wesleyan among the nation’s best colleges and universities.
