In the past few years, alumni, parents, and others have rallied in support of Wesleyan’s participation in the national Giving Tuesday campaign, and they have unlocked millions of dollars for financial aid for Wesleyan students.

On this year’s Giving Tuesday, Nov. 28, members of the Wesleyan community showed an outpouring of support for financial aid yet again.

Trustee Marc Casper ‘90 thanked everyone who gave as part of the #GivingTuesday challenge and said he is committed to supporting financial aid at Wesleyan now more than ever.

“We received just over 3,300 gifts by the end of Giving Tuesday,” he said. “If you haven’t made a gift as of today, please do.”

“With you,” he added, “Wesleyan is possible. Your support is life changing: not just, for the students Wesleyan educates but for the lives they will impact and the future, they will shape.”

Go, Wes!
