Wesleyan’s alumni participation in the Wesleyan Fund is on a record pace — 30 percent as of December 31 — thanks to a generous challenge established by Frank Sica ’73, a member of the university’s Board of Trustees.
The participation rate is four points ahead of last year at this time. Wesleyan has received more than 6,800 gifts, including 890 from alumni who did not give last year. Fully 5,886 alumni met the challenge criteria of contributing $25 or more by December 31, resulting in an endowment gift of $100 each, or $588,600, from Sica.
“Frank’s generosity enabled us to reach out to alumni, and the response has been marvelous,” says Barbara-Jan Wilson, vice president for university relations. “To Frank and all the alumni who contributed to his challenge, thank you for your support of Wesleyan. You make it possible for Wesleyan to be the outstanding institution it is.”
