The Wofford Fund

The Wofford Fund includes annual gifts that support projects, programs and other priorities critical to the prosperity of Wofford College. It fills the gap where tuition dollars and endowment funds begin. Simply put, the Wofford Fund touches everyone and everything on campus — funding for scholarships, research and professional development opportunities and financial support for the entire academic, student life and physical campus.

Your gift to the Wofford Fund is not only an investment in our institution, but also in a new generation of students. Chances are you benefited from generations of alumni who came before you and chose to make the commitment to better our college.
 

Why support The Wofford Fund?

  • Every. Gift. Counts. No matter if you can give $5 or $5,000, we value your contribution. Your gift matters, and we appreciate your support as a donor to the Wofford Fund.
  • Alumni support matters. Alumni participation is considered by ranking systems such as that used by US News and World Report. The college's rankings help attract the best students, faculty and staff and, in turn, increase the value of your degree.
  • Giving demonstrates your loyalty. By giving to the Wofford Fund, you express your belief in the college's mission and vision.
