Over the past four years Wilmington College’s historic comprehensive campaign entitled “Leave Your Mark” has raised over $13.5 million from 2,784 Alumni and Friends. In the last month, an anonymous donor has come forward to pledge that they will match all new gifts – on a dollar-for-dollar basis up to $1 million – in an effort to initiate the final chapter in this multiyear campaign. This gift is designed to inspire and encourage our Alumni and Friends to invest in the bold future that the College is creating. A future that envisions state of the art facilities to augment our excellent and unique hands-on learning methodologies; additional scholarships that open the door to a better life for our students; enhanced international study opportunities that provide our graduates with a deeper sense of self and understanding of the world; and increased unrestricted gifting that supports the life changing activities of the College.
The Million Dollar Challenge starts in December of 2015 and ends December 2016. During this time period all gifts to the Leave Your Mark Campaign – including appreciated stock and irrevocable planned gifts – will be counted. Now is the time to Leave Your Mark!
