Give with a Matching Gift

Want to double or triple your gift? Check to see if your employer or your spouse's employer matches gifts. Increase your support to Wesleyan by taking an extra step. Contact the personnel office or check through our online database to determine if your employer is a Matching Gift company.

Give by Stock Transfer

For stock held by a broker, instruct your broker to electronically transfer the shares to West Virginia Wesleyan. Call the Office of Advancement during business hours (Monday-Thursday 8:00 a.m.-4:30 p.m. and Friday from 8:00 a.m.-12:00 noon) at 800-768-8264 or at (304) 473-8117 or email makeagift@wvwc.edu. In order to donate securities held in your possession, you may sign a stock power and have the signature guaranteed. Then mail the unsigned certificate and the stock power to the College in separate envelopes.

Stocks, bonds, or mutual funds make excellent gifts to Wesleyan. Gifts of appreciated securities have the advantage of capturing the appreciation with no capital gains tax being paid by the donor. You are entitled to a federal income tax charitable deduction for the fair market value of the securities on the date of the gift. You may carry forward any unused deduction for five additional tax years if necessary.

Give by Payroll Deduction (Wesleyan Employees only)

Faculty and staff play a vital role in the life of the College. If you are interested in supporting the College financially, contact Christie Villers at 8117 or Rose Ellen Loudin at 8600. You can also print and complete the payroll deduction form (PDF) and bring it to the Erickson Alumni Center.
