Impact of The Wellesley Fund
Wellesley relies on the generosity of alumnae, families, and friends to support the College’s mission to provide an excellent liberal arts education to women who will make a difference in the world. One of the most important and immediate ways you can support today’s students is by making your Wellesley Fund gift today.
The Wellesley Fund provides critical and flexible funds that can be used to address urgent needs and seize unique opportunities. Gifts to The Wellesley Fund go to work immediately to improve all aspects of campus life, increase our need-based financial aid packages, support innovative teaching and research, update our state-of-the-art learning environments, and keep Wellesley’s 500-acre campus beautiful.
Alumnae Participation is Essential
An important annual fund goal is to increase Wellesley's rate of alumnae participation. The alumnae participation rate translates into a vote of confidence for one’s alma mater. It also strengthens Wellesley’s reputation for excellence. Gift designations include:
- The Wellesley Fund
- Financial aid
- Enhancing the residential experience
- Student and faculty research
