12.01.2015 | By:

Before the new year is the best time to give to your favorite cause. Don’t worry, your donation doesn’t have to break the bank. Every dollar helps and every gift counts.

Take a look at our top 5 reasons to make your gift to Texas Welseyan before 2016.

1. Your new gift will have twice the impact

For every new or increased gift to the Wesleyan Fund, Jack Morton ’43 has pledged a 1-to-1 matching gift. There's never been a better time to give.

Don’t just give - know what you’re supporting. Your gift to the Wesleyan Fund helps in three really big ways: fund scholarships, strengthen academic programs and increase donations from major foundations.

2. Who doesn’t want a tax break?

Donations qualify you for a tax break, while at the same time helping someone else. All donations to qualified nonprofit organizations are deductible, including your favorite college or university. The way we see it, everyone wins.

A year-end gift is a great time to give. It helps the University reach its fundraising goals, and it also helps you reduce your tax burden for the year. That’s what we call a win-win.

3. Make a gift in honor of your loved ones

You can give to Texas Wesleyan and to your loved ones at the same time. Dedicating a donation in the name of a family member or friend can be a thoughtful holiday gift. Start a legacy by making a tribute gift to the Wesleyan Fund in honor of those closest to you.

4. Help Texas Wesleyan meet its goal

The year is almost over. Your donation can help an organization meet or even pass its yearly financial goals. With more funds, Texas Wesleyan has the ability to make an even bigger impact on its students with donations to the Wesleyan Fund.

5. You’re giving to a meaningful cause

End of the year donations are a great way to get into the holiday spirit and get involved with a meaningful cause. Your donation is money well-spent. Donations to the Wesleyan Fund are used to provide financial aid to students and continue building academic programs.

The end of the year is almost here. Don’t wait, because every gift you make plays a part in helping Texas Wesleyan students succeed. You have 5 reasons to give and no reason to wait.
