DWU surpasses goal set for annual Wesleyan Fund
Thursday, June 20, 2013
Dakota Wesleyan University has surpassed its annual fund goal for the 13th year in a row.
DWU’s goal this year was $705,000, and with the help of alumni and friends, that goal was more than met. The Wesleyan Fund is the annual fund that contributes to programs, facility maintenance and student scholarships.
“The Wesleyan Fund is critical to the financial vitality of the university. Its continued growth over the past several years has enabled DWU to better resource itself in numerous areas including technology infrastructure, student scholarships, and new curriculum enhancements,” said DWU President Amy Novak.
DWU depends on its alumni, friends and community members to reach the Wesleyan Fund goal each year – including its own staff and faculty.
“Ninety-six percent of our employees contribute back to the college each year; it’s heartening that our alumni and community believe in this university as much as our campus community does,” said Theresa Kriese, executive vice president.
More information about the Wesleyan Fund can be found at the advancement website. DWU is a private, liberal arts university associated with the Dakotas Conference of the United Methodist Church. For more information about Dakota Wesleyan University, visit www.dwu.edu.
