Celebrate #GivingTuesday with Wellesley!

At Wellesley, our greatest strength—women’s education—is aligned with one of the world’s greatest needs: women leaders. This Giving Tuesday, a global day of giving back, pause from your holiday shopping and invest in women by making a gift to Wellesley.

 

This year, we are raising dollars to support Wellesley's Admission fly-in program. The fly-in program breaks down a significant barrier for prospective students who don't have the means to travel to Wellesley. A visit to campus greatly impacts a student’s likelihood to apply and later enroll: students who participate in the fly-in program have a significantly higher overall rate of enrollment. That’s why last year the program brought close to 300 admitted students to campus—more than half of whom enrolled at Wellesley in the fall!

 

Support the Fly-in Program

 

To make a quick $10 gift—text the keyword TUESDAY, your name, and class year to 50555. (Your donation will be added to your mobile phone bill/deducted from your prepaid account.)

 

The act is simple,
but the impact is extraordinary

Lex Mouton ’20 is one of hundreds of students whose decision to come to Wellesley was due in large part to her participation in Wellesley’s Admission fly-in program. Students who don’t have the means to travel to Wellesley are able to tour campus, attend classes and panels, and get a glimpse of life at Wellesley. After experiencing Wellesley in person, Lex knew that this was the place she was meant to be.
