Make a splash, Marlins! Give to what you love.

University News | April 22, 2021

Virginia Wesleyan is counting down to a big day of giving on Friday, April 23! This annual philanthropic day has become a tradition at VWU, one in which the entire community can participate with excitement and pride. During the VWU Day of Giving, members of the community can make a splash and give back to what they love most about VWU.

While VWU students, faculty, staff, family and friends of the University may not be able to gather together right now, Marlin supporters can still honor what they love about Virginia Wesleyan and provide support on this special day.

During the 2021 VWU Day of Giving, gifts can be made to anything you love at Virginia Wesleyan by contributing to The Excellence Fund. And, dollar for dollar, donations will be matched up to $5,000, thanks to VWU Class of 1979 Alumnus and Board of Trustee Member Gary Bonnewell.

With your gift of any size, you can make the 2021 VWU Day of Giving bigger and better than ever before, providing a direct investment in programs that foster leadership, achievement, lifelong learning, and engaged citizenship for our current and future students. Help VWU reach the match of $5,000 by participating in this year's Day of Giving and by sharing the fun with family and friends.

To help support the Day of Giving momentum and get others excited, post on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram about why you gave and what you value most about VWU. Wear your VWU gear—a shirt or hat -- and share a photo using #VWUDayofGiving. Post on social media to show support for the University you love.

Give to what you love and make a splash during the 2021 VWU Day of Giving on April 23!
