Greetings! Welcome to the West Virginia Wesleyan College planned giving resource site.
We have partnered with the Stelter Company to provide high-quality and up-to-date information on charitable giving and estate planning. Whether you are an alumnus, a friend of the college, a United Methodist friend, or a professional advisor, we encourage you to explore our website and browse the resources herein. A planned gift is a poignant and tangible way to benefit the college and advance its mission. There are wonderful things going on at Wesleyan—as there have been for over a century—and with thoughtful contributions we will perpetuate this success for many years to come. Planned giving can also serve as a conduit for personal tax savings and efficient transfers of wealth, in addition to supporting the institution's goals and needs.
While we welcome you to review these materials at your leisure, we are more than happy to address your specific questions and points of interest. Please do not hesitate to be in touch with us. As always, thank you for keeping Wesleyan close to heart and close to mind!
