Invest in People

Invest in People ($9 Million)

At the core of Wilmington College are the people who live, learn and lead every day with the College’s time-honored values: students, faculty and staff. Together, the people of Wilmington College participate in a liberal-arts learning community that nurtures the growth of the whole person — intellectual, emotional, physical, and spiritual. The Together We RISE campaign is an opportunity for donors like you to have a direct and positive impact on our community.
