Enjoy Your Lifelong Connection with Wilmington College

By giving back to the Wilmington College community, you become a living link to our rich heritage and legacy. Whether you desire to make a donation to a specific cause or contribute to the annual fund, know that you are key to ensuring a bright, prosperous future for our students. Your generous support helps make a WC degree possible for those who might otherwise be unable to afford it.

Additionally, if you are a member of the alumni community, we invite you to continue to connect and engage with Wilmington College and fellow alumni, creating and sustaining lifelong relationships. Keep in touch so we can celebrate your successes long after you shift your tassel from right to left at commencement. Join us for gatherings — regional, virtual or on campus, and Homecoming and reunion activities — not only for your own enjoyment but also to serve as an example of the value of a WC degree to current and future students.
