A detailed picture of a pillar on campusThe Wesleyan Fund is comprised of unrestricted gifts received from IWU alums, friends, parents, faculty, and students over the course of the fiscal year.  These funds are used to offset the University's annual operating costs.  From student scholarships and faculty salaries to heating and cooling costs, the considerable expense in keeping the University running must be covered.  The Wesleyan Fund aids IWU in covering these costs and maintaining the high quality of educational experience provided.

Every gift makes a difference!

Illinois Wesleyan prides itself on its wonderful faculty and beautiful facilities--but you don't have the money to endow a professorship or put your name on a new building.  Don't fret!  You can still play a vital role in the success and well-being of the University!  The campus is filled with books, desks, lamps, and computers that don't pay for themselves.  You can help.

Have you ever changed a light bulb at home?  They go out in classrooms too--and somebody has to cover the cost of new ones so IWU students aren't sitting in the dark.  Ever wondered what music stands cost?  We have.  How often do you take out the trash?  Probably not as often as we take ours out...and that costs money.  Every gift makes a difference in the lives of IWU students.  Please consider joining other IWU supporters in positively affecting campus life--regardless of the size of your gift.  You can help.
