About

We know that numerous organizations and educational institutions ask for your support on Giving Tuesday, and we are grateful that you choose to support Wilmington College! Together we will raise $100,000 (in just 24 hours) for WC students. 

This #GivingChooseDay we are asking for gifts to Annual Fund. You are welcome to designate your gift to a sports team, academic department or family scholarship, but unrestrictive gifts to the annual fund are the most effective way to help Wilmington College RISE. The annual fund supports people, living and learning environments, and a sustainable future for the College.


  • Invest in People: At the core of Wilmington College are the people who live, learn and lead every day with the College’s time-honored values. Together, the students, faculty and staff of Wilmington College participate in a liberal arts learning community that nurtures the growth of the whole person. 
  • Invest in the living and learning environment: Community is nurtured in the classroom, as well as across the campus. Capital improvements are planned to improve student living spaces, create productive learning environments and make the Wilmington College campus more welcoming. 
  • Invest in a sustainable future: The staff and faculty of Wilmington College have shown they can be nimble and resourceful in the face of challenges. With the help of donors, the College will always be resilient and prepared to address both predictable and unpredictable futures.

As proud alumni and friends of WC, we would love to hear from you on social media! Tuesday, Nov. 29 is sure to be a day full of emails and posts asking for support. Your personal WC testimonies will help WC break through the noise. Tell us why you choose WC (don’t forget to include the hashtag #WeAreDubC).
