WVWC Day of Giving 2021 launched March 1, ‘Build for the Future’ Centerpiece of Campaign

BUCKHANNON, WV – West Virginia Wesleyan College recently announced it launched its annual WVWC Day of Giving on March 1, starting a month-long ‘Build for the Future’ giving campaign to support current and prospective students by making strategic physical improvements to the Buckhannon-based campus. The College is focused on raising funds to support residence halls, Ross Field lights and overall capital improvements. You may make a WVWC Day gift online at wvwc.edu/give.

“Every dollar given to boost brick and mortar improvement efforts across Wesleyan’s campus generates more student interest and more student enrollment opportunities,” said Talley Sergent, Chief Development and Marketing Officer at WVWC. “On this WVWC Day of Giving, build on the success of giving to student scholarships and support Wesleyan’s ‘Build for the Future’ campaign to make strategic improvements to facilities across its beloved campus.”

WVWC Day is an annual day the College leverages to raise funds for strategic imperatives, ranging from student scholarships to capital improvements. This year, the ‘Build for the Future’ campaign expands on the College’s successful GivingTuesday activation last fall to support student scholarships.

‘Build for the Future’ efforts are centered on residence halls, Ross Field lights and overall capital improvements. Many of Wesleyan’s historic, Georgian-style residence halls are at least 50 years old. While providing the Wesleyan charm, the buildings require continued investment to provide the ‘Home Among the Hills,’ for which WVWC is known.

In addition, Ross Field lights are an important component of this campaign, supporting both the College and the Buckhannon-Upshur community at large. Ross Field lights would help support WVWC’s ability to recruit student-athletes, expand opportunities for WVWC teams and local teams to compete and support the City of Buckhannon’s winning bid to host the 2023 World Association of Marching Show Bands Championships as well as community efforts to attract sports tourism. Finally, capital improvements are an anchor to any college and require continued investment and upkeep.

“While WVWC Day is a great day to build toward and to launch from, we welcome gifts large and small all year long,” Sergent added. “Every gift creates impact for a Wesleyan student.”
