Giving Tuesday for Financial Aid

UPDATE: We did it!!!

Thanks to the generous participation of the Wesleyan family, we met the challenge and surpassed 3,000 gifts. Mike Fries ’85 will add $300,000 to financial aid. Yeah!! This even got a wag from Mathilde!!

Wesleyan holds its third consecutive Giving Tuesday on December 1. #GivingTuesday is a national day of generosity, it’s a day when your personal contribution can make a huge impact in our Wesleyan community. Our goal is 3,000 gifts between November 20 and December 1, Giving Tuesday. Please help us unlock this important gift to financial aid by making a donation today.

If we reach our goal of 3,000 gifts by the end of Giving Tuesday, new Board member Mike Fries ’85 will give an additional $300,000 for financial aid. Any gift between now and the end of Giving Tuesday counts toward the goal. Every gift—of whatever size—counts! Please give!!

Here’s Hamilton and In the Heights director Thomas Kail on why it’s so important to give:
