Philanthropy is an adventure requiring passion, faith and patience.

Your generosity helps make a Wells education possible and provides critical funding for all that we do, including: scholarships for bright and deserving students; a wide range of co-curricular programming to assure that our students have healthy, balanced experiences; improvements and upkeep to our beautiful campus; and a talented faculty committed to scholarship, curricular development and, of course, teaching. As always, the true beneficiaries of your philanthropy are Wells students.

Your participation in the life of Wells is an investment in a vibrant, healthy future. Your gifts help to assure that the College's next century will be as exciting and compelling as her first 150 years. Thank you for your support of Wells College.

Shared Responsibility


The challenge is for alumnae and alumni who graduated from Wells in the past 25 years (2013- 1989). Each year we have a very loyal and generous group of alumnae who have been giving to the Annual Fund for over 25 years. We want our recent alums to join them and establish their own legacy of giving to Wells.
Professor emeritus G. Alan Clugston has offered a challenge to our recent alums to raise $20,000 and he will match that up to $10,000.


He has generously offered a challenge match of $20 to the Annual Fund for every donor from the classes of 1989–2013 who makes a gift to Wells between now and June30, 2014. To inspire a monthly credit card gift to Wells he has also offered a challenge match of $20 a month to the Annual Fund for every donor from the classes of 1989–2013 who makes a monthly automatic credit card payment for 12 months or more.

Give a gift every year - make a difference everyday

Open the door:

Wells ranks among the top 20% of this country’s private colleges in making education more accessible to more students through scholarships. Greater than 90% of our students receive some type of financial aid – and your Annual Fund gift makes it possible for the College to extend invitations to talented students, regardless of their financial circumstances.



Bridge the gap:

You may not realize that tuition, room and board, and other fees that students pay account for less than half of what it actually costs to educate a student. Annual Fund gifts are essential to ensuring that today’s students benefit from the extraordinary education Wells offers.



Give today, impact today:

Annual Fund gifts are available immediately to help the College meet its daily operating needs, and most importantly, to assure a personal educational experience for all students.
