Give Day 2019

The generous support of W&L alumni, parents, employees and friends puts students on a path to success.

The Annual Fund provides a significant percentage of the university's operating budget — nearly eight percent — and is the critical difference in W&L's ability to fulfill its educational mission by providing unrestricted dollars that support academic departments, faculty and student research, financial aid, athletics and more.




Give Day Is Over

To those who took part in the 24-hour donor participation challenge and followed along on social media, thank you.  You were part of a special day.

If you're just now joining us, feel free to show your love for W&L by making a donation to the Annual Fund and telling the world about it. Your gift won't count toward Give Day 2019, but we'll appreciate you just the same and your donation will support the next generation of W&L students.
