University Relations hosted Thank a Cardinal Day Nov. 24 in Usdan University Center. All students had an opportunity to write brief thank you notes to alumni, parents and friends who’ve donated through the Wesleyan Fund in 2014.

The Wesleyan Fund raises more than $10 million annually through gifts large and small. Many donors give every year to support the university’s current expenses, and special fundraisers like the March GOLD Challenge support financial aid.
On Thank a Cardinal Day, students could write one or several notes of thanks for this support. All the gifts raised by the fund count in Wesleyan’s multi-year, multi-million dollar THISISWHY fundraising campaign promoting access, inquiry and impact across the university.
