Welcome to #WCGivingTuesday2021! 

Your annual support on Giving Tuesday allows for organizational improvements across Wilmington College. From new Health Center's for student use to new academic opportunities for graduate level learning. We appreciate all of you who have and continue to support WC!   

Your support is transforming students’ lives through Wilmington College’s hallmark opportunities for “Hands-On Learning and Hands-On Living.” Please contribute to our unwavering mission to prepare students for lives of service and success.

Friends, we are so very close!

Good evening Wilmington College community,

This will be our last communication of the evening. We appreciate everyone's support and patience during #GivingTuesday. We have seen so much generosity today. We've had friends, alumni, and faculty/staff stop by to hand deliver donations. Members of our community went online and pledged monthly contributions. We had a generous former board member step forward and contribute a $25,000 gift to this years campaign. We are truly blessed. 

This year's #GivingTuesday event goes until 1 AM. We are currently $24,000 short of our goal. To those who have contributed, THANK YOU! To those who are waiting, we couldn't think of a better time than now. 

We will continually update the total with any gifts that come in this evening. Totals will be shared tomorrow when we have the number. 

The IMPACT we are collectively making today is going to be felt by all who call WC home. Thank you for helping WC RISE.

We are so close to the first match! Other initiatives are underway!

Dear WC alumni and friends!

We are doing great! There are less than 12 hours to go in our annual Giving Tuesday Campaign. We have tallied the mail from today, as well as received some gifts from alumni that are going to move the needle in major ways! 

  • We are about to unlock the first $15,000 match
  • There are three challenges for matching gifts taking place right now! Communication Arts, Spanish Language Program, and the Class of 1978 all have matching donations ready! 

If you are wondering why #GivingTuesday is so important for the WC Community, watch this video we have shared via email and social media. Our new Health Center is lightyears above what was in Baily Hall. Your donations HAVE AN IMPACT! 

Thank you for your support of Wilmington College!
