Ways to Give

Giving to Wilmington College

The choice of giving is a personal one that must take into consideration a donor’s objectives, obligations and financial plans. Many alumni and friends of Wilmington College make personal gifts of non-cash assets, which, because of the additional tax benefits, often make it possible for them to make even larger gifts than they had originally considered.

Some individuals may wish to consider other longterm gift arrangements, such as life-income gifts and bequests, as part of an overall financial and estate plan.


Wilmington College now has the capability to accept Bitcoin donations! To learn more about this process, contact Matt Wahrhaftig, VP for College Advancement, at 937.481.2263 or

Every Gift Has an Impact

Last year, gifts under $100 to the Wilmington fund totaled nearly $40,000! That’s a HUGE impact. It’s your participation that counts in our rankings and to our potential donors, not the size of your gift!

Planned Giving

These types of gifts are special because they ensure that the College’s tradition of success will grow and flourish. The legacy created by these gifts will shape the life of the College for many years to come.


Athletic Association

The Athletic Association is part of a strong athletics tradition at Wilmington College. It is a way for you to stay in touch with our athletics programs and, at the same time, show our student-athletes how much you appreciate their efforts.


Leadership Giving

The Wilmington College Leadership Giving program is a donor recognition program in which membership is based on the total of an individual’s personal gifts and corporate matching gifts during a single fiscal year.
