Merry Christmas, Wilberforce Family and Friends!
Exciting things are happening at Wilberforce University! The University signed a collaborative partnership with the Cincinnati Reds to bring Baseball back, wiped out the graduating class of 2020 and 2021’s student debt and secured full status accreditation with the Higher Learning Commission. New records in year-end giving have been set and the University is proud to report a 10-year fundraising high thanks to our generous supporters. We have a lot to celebrate!
Philanthropic support is bringing to life our shared aspirations, whether through refreshed facilities or expanding our programs and educational excellence. Our work doesn’t end. Many of our students of promise are the first in their family to attend college and 100% of our students are PELL grant eligible, which means we need your continued support.
As you reflect on your year-end giving, please consider making a generous donation to Wilberforce University today. Your gift will support our educational programs and supply the students the funding they need to successfully complete their academic journey. Together we can continue the great work of this institution, work that began in 1856 and by the favor of God will continue for many generations to come.
Some of you have already joined our End of Year WALK FOR WU! and we thank you. But for those of you have not yet tried this fun way to connect with alumni and other friends of Wilberforce, this is an opportunity to either donate or create a walk team. You can also TEXT “WUGIVES” TO 41444 or just Donate Now!
Thank you for your continued support and for making a meaningful donation. We wish you a safe Merry Christmas and a Prosperous New Year!
Natalie R. Coles, Vice President & Chief Development Officer
