“We accept the responsibilities of alumnaehood and pledge to ourselves, as did the class of 1859, to contribute to the strength and prosperity of our Alma Mater.” -- the Benson Charge
Whether you graduated many years ago or very recently, chances are good that you still recall our special candlelighting ceremony, including the Benson Charge. Wesleyan’s history is filled with alumnae who have fulfilled their pledge faithfully by making the College one of their priorities. We are indeed grateful to those who give generously to our alma mater year after year.
Alumnae gifts to the Annual Fund make the Wesleyan experience exceptional – and provide critically needed funding for scholarships. Every gift counts – no matter the size. When all of us give, our collective contribution makes a truly significant difference. If you have already given to Wesleyan's Annual Fund this fiscal year, thank you for your support! If you have not yet made your gift, please consider making a gift before June 30th. You may make your gift online today!
