• $25, $50 and $100 gifts gain strength in numbers.
• Alumni and friends who are in the habit of making a gift (regardless of size) are much more inclined to make a major gift if and when they are able.
• Foundations and corporations often use participation percentages as a measure of quality and satisfaction from those who are closest to the college. By improving our participation percentage we better position ourselves to receive large competitive grants.
• Prospective students and their families equate high participation percentages with customer satisfaction.
• Participation is one factor used in college ratings systems such as US News and World Report.
• As Wofford’s reputation grows, so does the value (or perceived value) of every graduate’s diploma.

Every Gift Counts

Every gift, regardless of size, is important to the Unrestricted Annual Fund. Participation demonstrates your affirmation of Wofford College. Join the pack today!
