About

Give forward to make an impact at 

Wesleyan University today and tomorrow!

June 1 - June 30

Calling all Cardinals! During the month of June, when 1,000 members of the Wesleyan community make a gift of any amount to any cause, Susannah Gray ’82 will donate $1 million to Wesleyan.

A Wesleyan education allows students to explore their interests, discover new connections, and share what they’ve learned with the world. These vital experiences are only possible thanks to generous annual support from alumni, parents and friends. Your gift to academics, athletics, student life, financial aid, and so much more make a difference.

Show your Cardinal pride and make a gift in support of students today. Together, we can provide future Cardinals the opportunity to create their own unique Wesleyan experiences. 

Thank you for taking the Cardinal Challenge and making your gift today!
