Giving Tuesday 2016

You did it!!!

Wesleyan held its fourth consecutive Giving Tuesday on November 29. #GivingTuesday is a national day of generosity. It’s a day when your personal contribution can make a huge impact in our Wesleyan community. Our goal was 3,000 gifts between November 1 and November 29, Giving Tuesday.

We reached an amazing 3,654 gifts! Thank you for your outstanding show of support for students, sharing your #UNselfies with us, and encouraging others to support Wesleyan. Thanks to the hundreds of volunteers who dedicated their time and passion, and the Frank Family, John Frank '78, P'12, Diann Kimm P'12, and Peter Frank '12, who generously supported the challenge with a $300,000 donation to financial aid.

Go Wes!


The #UNselfie, or the selfless selfie, is a powerful way to show why giving is important to you.

How do I #UNselfie?

  1. Take a "selfie" with a caption explaining how or why you are "giving" this year.
  2. Use the hashtags #WesGives #UNselfie and #GivingTuesday
  3. Post it to Instagram, Facebook and/or Twitter and share with friends!
  4. Tag your friends to share why they give.
