Class of 1956 55th Reunion Gift
In honor of our reunion, we are hoping to raise $30,000 through the Wesleyan Fund with 90% class participation. To support the University’s highest priorities including financial aid, click here to make your gift today!
A great way to create a comprehensive Reunion contribution is to include a planned gift along with your annual gift. There are many options available including bequests, life insurance or retirement plan designations, and life income gifts which will benefit you or a loved one through retirement years. For further information, please contact Cheryl Brodowski in the Office of Gift Planning at (860) 685-5775 or visit the website at www.wesleyan.edu/plannedgiving.
