The Wesleyan Fund
The Wesleyan Fund also provides scholarship support for students. Unlike endowed scholarship funds, 100% of the money secured for the Wesleyan Fund is immediately utilized to support students. The impact of these dollars is significant and meaningful in a given year. The Wesleyan Fund does not persist over time—but its impact is quite high. A $1,000 gift in support of the Wesleyan Fund provides the functional equivalent of a $20,000 endowed fund. Both are important, both are needed, and building both endowed and Wesleyan Fund scholarships are critical to our student success.
The 2012-2013 Wesleyan Fund Goal is $1.2 million. Every gift truly makes a difference!

You Can Make a Gift to Wesleyan and Receive West Virginia Tax Credits
Wesleyan participates in the Neighborhood Investment Program. The College has been awarded $55,700 in WV Tax Credits through this program, which provides scholarships for students from Barbour, Braxton, Fayette, Gilmer, Greenbrier, Lewis, Nicholas, Pocahontas, Randolph, Tucker, Upshur, and Webster Counties that are at or below 125% of the federal poverty level.
You can make a donation of $500 or more and receive WV Tax Credits in addition to a federal tax charitable deduction and provide scholarship assistance to a deserving student. Tax credits are awarded at a rate of 50% of your donation. For example, a donation of $1,000 will result in WV Tax Credits of $500 and make you a member of The Wesleyan Society.
If you wish to make a gift to West Virginia Wesleyan College and take advantage of this special tax-saving opportunity, please make your check out to West Virginia Wesleyan College and write WV Opportunity Scholarship on the memo line of the check.
If you have additional questions about the Neighborhood Investment Program at Wesleyan, please contact Rose Ellen Loudin ’03, Director of Advancement Operations, at 304-473-8600 or Loudin_r@wvwc.edu.

"Not only did Wesleyan provide me
with numerous internship opportunities
and travel experiences abroad, it
gave me a strong foundation for graduate
school. The specialized programs of
study allowed me to map out long-term
goals. In addition, my faculty advisers
proved essential to my success and were
always available to assist me with all facets of my educational
experience. This type of individualized instruction
would not have been possible at any other college or university.
I was privileged to have spent time here and became a
more refined and focused person--learning how to manage
my time more efficiently, adjust to culturally diverse societies,
and establish deeper relationships with my fellow peers."
"From the moment I began my first
classes at Wesleyan, I knew I was in
a place where there was no limit to
the success of the students. I was not
only allowed, but encouraged to pursue
any interests I had, both on the
athletic field and in the classroom.
The faculty, staff, and coaches I met
along the way all had a critical role in the development
of the person I am today. They made Wesleyan a second
home that I will always remember."
