Gifts to Wesleyan's Annual Fund, no matter how small, truly impact every student.
By providing scholarships, athletic opportunities, and professional development experiences, your generous contributions reach every Wesleyan woman.
You have a choice to direct your gift to a specific program on campus, like the Center for Career Development, or you may choose to keep your gift unrestricted to help meet Wesleyan's most pressing needs.
Because of your gifts to the Annual Fund, Wesleyan awards more than $4 million in scholarships each year. More than 95% of our students receive financial assistance. Without your help, the Wesleyan experience would not be attainable for the vast majority of our young women. Find out more information about scholarships here.
Wesleyan offers 30 major and 33 minor academic programs. Your gift to the Annual Fund ensures the College is able to offer the best academic offerings for our students now and in the future. Find out more about our academics here.
Wesleyan boasts a student/teacher ratio of 13:1, and 90% of the full-time faculty hold the highest degree in their field. Because we are committed to providing our students with the best possible instruction and academic opportunities, we must invest in our faculty and support their needs in the classroom.
Teaching and technology are intrinsically linked in today’s classrooms, especially at Wesleyan, since many of our classes are taught in an interactive, seminar style. Technology is constantly changing, and it is expensive to maintain the state-of-the-art equipment to support the academic programs.
Your gift to the Annual Fund supports the College's Diversity and Inclusion initiatives. Wesleyan values our diverse student body and wants to ensure our campus is inclusive of everyone. Your gift funds workshops, trainings and speakers. Find more information on our diversity and inclusion programs here.
Wesleyan offers students the opportunity to participate in 7 NCAA Division III
sports and an IHSA Equestrian Program. Find more information about Wesleyan Athletics here.
Each gift enables Wesleyan to have a myriad of student clubs and activities. Your contribution to the Annual Fund provides support services for students inside and outside the classroom to insure their success, including career services, counseling, and tutoring.
Religious life is deepened through student-lead campus programs like the Lane Center for Service and Leadership, and Wesleyan Disciples. Leadership opportunities are made available to our students through a wide variety of programs and campus activities.
