Philanthropy at Wellesley

The Wellesley circle of philanthropic support comprises groups of generous donors from a range of communities who commit to gifts that support Wellesley’s mission in a variety of meaningful ways. We are proud of this broad support, and we invite you to explore just a few of the ways you, too, might join the circle.
