Virtual Philanthropic Leaders Appreciation Event

November 19, 2021

PREMIERES TONIGHT AT 5 P.M. ET

The Office of Advancement would like to share some information about our annual Philanthropic Leadership Dinner, which has been a traditional way in which we show appreciation for the support of leadership donors like yourself. Thank you once again for your key role in the College’s enduring mission of preparing students for a lifetime of service and success through a rich experience highlighted by hands-on learning opportunities.

Due to the continuing COVID-19 pandemic, we will not be gathering in person for a dinner but, instead, will host a virtual Philanthropic Leaders Appreciation Event Friday, Nov. 19, at 5 p.m. on this page. If you have a time conflict, the presentation will be available to view at your leisure. Highlights will include the announcement of WC’s Philanthropist(s)-of-the-Year, the induction of our newest Marble Society members and insights about Wilmington College by our president, Dr. Trevor Bates.
