Why I Give

Alumnae Sherry Better smiles for the camera

SHERRY NEAL ’96

Wesleyan gave so much to me that I want to give back…If every alumna gives even a little, Wesleyan will remain strong and vibrant. Giving monthly is so easy, and by dividing your annual contribution into monthly payments, you may be able to give a larger annual gift.

When I was a Wesleyan student, I stood on the shoulders of those who had come before me, depending on scholarship aid to help me afford my education. It’s my turn now to offer those same shoulders to future Wesleyannes.

My donations are to ensure that a liberal arts education for women will continue to pass on not just skills and facts, but what it means to be an informed woman as free, nurturing, creative, brave, and caring as she can be.

Estate and other Planned Gifts

One of the easiest ways to honor a connection to Wesleyan College is to include Wesleyan in your estate plan.  A bequest can be a specific amount, or all or part of what is left after family needs are met.  Simply meet with your attorney to draft, update, or supplement your will. THEN LET US KNOW.  We would like to recognize you with lifetime membership in the prestigious Society for the Twenty-first Century. FOR ADDITIONAL INFORMATION, please contact Susan Allen at 478.757.5133 or sallen@wesleyancollege.edu.

 

Gifts of Stocks, Bonds or other Securities

Wesleyan accepts gifts of publicly traded stocks and bonds for annual fund gifts, capital gifts and planned gifts.  Gifts of closely held stock can present special challenges and will be handled on a case-by-case basis by the Vice President for Institutional Advancement who will consult, as necessary, with the President and the Gift Acceptance Committee.  It is Wesleyan’s policy, in most cases, to sell stock promptly upon receipt.

 

Gifts of Real Estate

The Gift Acceptance Committee or other appropriate body of the Board of Trustees must approve acceptance of real estate.  Due consideration of both environmental and financial implications is imperative. For more information please contact our office at 478.757.5131

 

Gifts of Art, Antiques, Horses and other Personal Property

The Advancement Office, in consultation with the appropriate department, determines whether a potential gift can be used or displayed by the college. The Advancement Office will consider the distinction between related and non related use and, if necessary, communicate the resultant tax implications to the donor. For tax purposes, gifts of personal property are subject to taxation, even if the receiving institution is a charitable organization, when the gift is non related, or does not advance the programs of the institution.
