Wesleyan Community Makes More than 3,300 Gifts on Giving Tuesday

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!

Wesleyan Exceeds Giving Tuesday Goal


On Giving Tuesday, Nov. 29, members of the Wesleyan community joined together to support Wesleyan students. This was Wesleyan’s fourth year participating in the global campaign, which encourages people to support their favorite organizations during the holiday season.

This year, Wesleyan’s Giving Tuesday goal was 3,000 gifts received between Nov.1 and Nov. 29. By the end of the day on Giving Tuesday, Wesleyan had received a total of 3,674 gifts.

“Our sincere thanks to everyone who gave in support of students this year, including the Frank-Kim Family—John Frank ’78, P’12, Diann Kim P’12, and Peter Frank ’12—who generously inspired others to give with their gift of $300,000 to financial aid,” said Chuck Fedolfi, director of annual giving for the Wesleyan Fund. “And a special thanks to the hundreds of volunteers who continue to humble us with their dedication, their time, and their passion for Wesleyan,” he added.
