For every new or increased gift to the Wesleyan Fund, Jack Morton '43 has pledged a 1-to-1 matching gift. That means your gift does more. There's never been a better time to give.
It's coming — postcards, letters and emails asking you to "Take the Morton Challenge" and "make your gift today."
Why? Because it really matters.
Nothing you can do makes a greater impact on the students at Texas Wesleyan than your gift — and your participation — to the Wesleyan Fund. Here's why:
The less dependent students are on student loans, the better they will be. And even with a couple of jobs, and every penny they've ever saved, it's very likely many will still need some help to cover the gap. We're talking star students — the kind that earn scholarships and go on to bigger and better things.
That's where scholarships come in. Your gift to the Wesleyan Fund goes directly to support student scholarships — how's that for bang for your buck?
Wesleyan Fund dollars go directly to strengthen academic programs. That increases the value of a Texas Wesleyan degree and attracts high-quality students to our University. Your dollars go to the people who need them.
Major donors and foundations look at participation metrics before they give. Why? Because they want to see how engaged the community is with its University. If we don't care, why should we expect them to? Participation is a measure of passion. Proud of your school? Prove it with a gift.
That's why you might notice that this year; we're asking you to pass the word onto your friends. "Smaller. Smarter." works when all of us participate.
Our goal: $600,000
The easiest way to give is using our website — it's easy and immediate. We will be sending reminders to give throughout the year, but why not get the Challenge started off on the right foot? Make a gift today.
