Giving Tuesday

24 hours of community giving.
One incredible chance to shape our future.

On Tuesday, December 3, the Wesley College community will come together with charities, businesses, families and individuals around the nation for #GivingTuesday, a Wesley College has proudly joined #GivingTuesday, a first of its kind movement that will change the calendar and help make history on Tuesday, December 3, 2013. Coinciding with the Thanksgiving holiday and the kickoff to the holiday shopping season, #GivingTuesday will inspire people to give back in better, smarter ways to the causes and charities that are important to them.


As an official partner in this effort, Wesley is celebrating this day of giving that will channel the collective power of many, and we encourage you to join us. What better way to participate than by demonstrating your support of Wesley College, which has touched the lives of countless students and enhanced the local community in its 140-year history, and has perhaps impacted you or a family member personally?

As alumni, parents, employees, friends and community members, we invite your participation in the Wesley Fund to directly support our institution and current students. Wesley Fund gifts provide scholarships, technology and other resources which better prepare our students to be future leaders who will in turn make an impact in their own communities.

The Board of Trustees has initiated a $75,000 Challenge Match to double the impact of every gift received by December 31, 2013, as an added incentive to boost participation. With your gift on #Giving Tuesday, December 3, you can help show the world that we can do much more with our wallets than just consume, and you can make a difference at Wesley College.

How to make your gift 

There are three ways you can make your tax-deductible gift and have it matched on #GivingTuesday:

Please remember that the Trustee Challenge Match will continue through the end of the calendar year so any gift made by December 31, 2013 through any channel qualifies for a dollar-to-dollar match, up to $75,000. Help Wesley finish strong in 2013 by taking advantage of this special incentive and showing your support!
