Supporting IWU

All In For Wesleyan - Information for Volunteers

Participation matters

  1. IWU gets a boost in college rankings (and the value of every IWU degree increases)

  2. IWU is more likely to get funding from private foundations and others.  Recently, IWU lost a $250,000 grant from the A.V. Davis Foundation---and they referenced our low participation rate as a primary reason for us not being awarded the grant.  This is a foundation with a history of significant giving to IWU.

  3. IWU's bond rating improves, which strengthens the University's financial position
